Students That Are Really Special (S.T.A.R.S.)
STARS is an important support system for families of students with special needs. Navigate your child’s academic, behavioral, and social experiences through the STARS Family Resource Center. After school, the STARS Tutoring Center offers elementary and middle school-age students homework support from our Special Education staff. Many classes at the JCC for children under 5 are labeled as STARS-friendly giving little ones and their parents opportunities to connect with the whole community.
