The Arbor School recently began a partnership with us to benefit students with unique abilities. Located in Winter Springs, Florida, the mission of The Arbor School is to provide a customized, therapeutic/educational experience to help every child achieve their full potential in life.  Their goal is to help children with autism or other special needs work to his/her best in an environment that is fun and creative,  yet challenging and academically sound.  The school teaches the core subjects of reading, math, social studies, science, spelling, and English, as well as opportunities for arts and crafts, music, field trips, and special events. 

We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to working with the Arbor School of Central Florida.  If you would like to support our efforts to provide enhanced learning opportunities for visitors with unique abilities, please contact us at education@oaklandnaturepreserve.org.
