Hope Haven School

Hope Haven School is a special educational service provider for the three local school districts in Jackson County. Children residing within Jackson County’s school districts with identified developmental disabilities can be referred to this program.

Preschool age programming is tailored to meet the needs of students age 3-5 to foster pre-academics, art, music and group activities. In addition to serving children with developmental disabilities in the preschool program, typically developing peers are also enrolled.

School age programming at Hope Haven School is tailored to meet the needs of students age 6-21.  The focus is on building skills needed in the present and future in the areas of functional academics, pre-vocational, socialization, daily living skills, adaptive physical education, fine/gross motor, and recreation/leisure.

We offer students the opportunity to participate in Special Olympic Activities such as Golf, Volleyball, Bowling, Basketball, and Track and Field. We also provide specialized in-house services to meet each child’s need such as Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, as well as Physical Therapy.

We take extreme pride in our school, as well as each one of our students.

Transition Services


Early planning and preparation are essential for success in adulthood. The Jackson County Board of DD assists individuals, families and schools in connecting them with services for life after graduation. We link families with community resources, employment and social activities each student wants.

Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
