P.G. Chambers School is a community of diverse learners where each student learns in a different way, requires different supports, and has unique gifts to share.
The educational programs begin in early childhood, with an inclusive option for children with and without disabilities, six weeks to five years of age, through Kids Count Child Care. Programs continue with a singular focus on services for children with disabilities in the preschool, elementary, and middle school. These programs support students’ overall development and challenge their learning. At P.G.
