GEMS Residential & Day School
Where Every Child’s Potential is Realized & Appreciated
The GEMS Educational Program at The School at Springbrook is truly a home away from home, offering students a living and learning environment where skill acquisition is brought about through interactions with peers and direct support professionals. Each GEMS student has an individualized treatment plan at their home that works with the individualized education plan established in their classroom. These plans incorporate behavioral teaching methods and learning experiences to increase and enhance skill development. Our professional staff embraces all changes and challenges with creativity and optimism. We know that every child has potential. It is our mission to nurture, appreciate, and enable each young person we support to realize that potential.
While most of our students both live and learn with us, we also offer a more traditional school program for students in surrounding communities. Our Day Program gives student the opportunity to experience a premiere educational setting right here in Otsego County, NY. We focus on building social and cognitive development, functional academic learning, transitional learning, and vocational learning and training opportunities.
