Allegro School Founding
The Allegro School was founded in 1989 as a non-profit 501 (C)(3) corporation to provide quality education, keep autistic children with their families, and prepare them for community living. The school serves approximately 105 students ages 3-21 from 10 counties in Northern and Central New Jersey. Approximately 75 children and adults are served though our outreach, respite, and adult services departments.
The Mission of Allegro School & Programs is to provide quality services to educate and support persons who have Autism/PDD, as needed, throughout their lifespan ever mindful of quality of life, the intent to maximize each individuals potential through a highly specialized, intensive and individualized education from which one can transition to less restrictive and inclusive settings, when appropiate in order to enable our adults to function productively in the community.
