“Discovering the unique potential within every child is our mission.”

At P.G. Chambers School, “discovering children’s unique potential” is at the heart of our mission, inspiring us to provide the best, most comprehensive education and therapy programs for children with disabilities, from birth through 22 years of age. The mission extends to the school’s state-of-the-art early education programs for young children with and without disabilities, six weeks to five years of age, in the school’s inclusive child care program.

P.G. Chambers School Goals

To reach beyond best-practice and offer innovative services for children and families
To continuously improve quality, collaboration, and sustainability
To conscientiously prepare PGCS for the future
To be effective advocates for children with disabilities
To ensure that PGCS can meet the challenges of changing economic and educational environments through the development of resources

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. Chambers School, students make measurable improvements in all areas of the curriculum, develop confidence in their own abilities and, at the right time, participate in their community schools.

A key component of P.G. Chambers School mission is to support children with disabilities in their communities. To fulfill this, P.G. Chambers School staff provides physical, occupational, and speech therapy, or related services, in public and private schools.

P.G. Chambers School is recognized, in New Jersey and across the nation, not only for the exceptional quality of its special education and therapy programs, but also for the training and continuing education that it provides for special educators, parents, therapists, and paraprofessionals. Based on the school mission of helping children reach their maximum potential, there is a strong commitment to preparing professionals and improving the expertise of those who work with this population.

P.G. Chambers School is one of the region’s most important nonprofit community organizations, earning the support of esteemed individuals from both the private and public sectors. It is also a first-choice referral for most area physicians, hospitals, school districts, and community social service agencies. The school’s programs reach children from a ten-county area of northern New Jersey.
