The core values of Moses Field School include “students first.” This culture of the school creates a nurturing, caring and safe environment where students have positive support to foster student achievement. All students can learn, but not at the same rate or in the same way. Students’ fundamental needs are addressed to make their lives more meaningful and to equip them with skills to participate in and make contributions to the communities in which they live.
Moses Field is a model school, serving students with special needs, by implementing programs and services to prepare students for successful transition to high school.

Moses Field Center-Based Program will strive on a daily basis to increase student achievement, increase student independence, provide community-based opportunities in real-world settings, infuse technology across the curriculum and enhance parent involvement.
We will educate diverse learners in a climate that is safe, nurturing and challenging. Students will engage in academics, social skills, activities of daily living, pre-vocational and community-based instruction to prepare them for successful transition to a high school satellite or center-based educational environment.
