THE RISE SCHOOL OF AUSTIN
Welcome to The Rise School of Austin, the city’s first and only school dedicated to early education of toddlers and pre-school children born with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities in an integrated environment.
Our Unique Program
Rise serves youngsters ages 12 months to six years old with an intensive environment of early education and intervention provided to students year-round, five days a week, for six hours daily. In its unique, proven model of an “integrated environment”, Rise enrolls about 65% students with Down syndrome and other developmental differences and 35% traditional-learners, a blend which allows special needs youngsters to “model” after typically-developing peers. There is no preschool program like this anywhere in Austin besides Rise. A child who begins as an infant will receive 6,000 hours of instruction, intervention and therapy at Rise by the time he or she “graduates” at age six, and will be ready to succeed in mainstream kindergarten and life. The traditional learners benefit greatly with enhanced academic skills and a deep understanding and compassion for people with differences.
