Children with complex challenges require relentless understanding – and at The Quaker School at Horsham, we are fiercely committed to helping every student make bold strides forward. 

This is a place where students who struggle in mainstream school shine; where children with ADHD, learning disabilities, autism, expressive and receptive language disorders, and anxiety disorders find the right-fit path forward to fulfilling their full potential.

What began in 1982 as a small school dedicated to meeting different learning needs has evolved into an expansive, innovative community that truly changes the lives of K-12 and young adult students and their families. Today, we provide four distinct programs to fit the needs of our unique learners:

  • Sassafras Program: A highly structured, self-contained K-6 classroom that focuses on behavior regulation and social skill acquisition for students whose autism is more challenging than the school’s general population.
  • K-8 School: Our lower- and middle-school-aged students grow into their personal, academic, and social potential while learning in a supportive community that makes each child feel like they belong.
  • Upper School: TQS is the ideal place for students in grades 9-12 to transition into adulthood; become confident in their potential; and explore opportunities in the workforce, continued education, college, and independent living.
  • Real-World Ready: Students with special needs ages 18-22 gain the skills required for community, college education, and employment paths, based on their individual goals.

Through groundbreaking research-based education, clinical services, and the unwavering dedication of exceptional faculty and staff, TQS empowers all students to belong in a community created just for them; blossom socially, behaviorally, and academically; and build a future of previously unthinkable possibilities.

"For our family, TQS has provided a safe, nurturing and fun environment for our son. It has also meant friendships and a joy of learning for our child, who has not always had a positive school experience." -Current TQS Parent
