Enrichment Classes & After School Programs
North Florida School of Special Education offers a variety of clubs and extra-curricular activities for our students. As a frontrunner in the field of Reverse Inclusion, our clubs are often spearheaded by and involve typical students and adults alongside our students and young adults with intellectual and developmental differences. The Bolles School, St. Mark’s Episcopal School, Christ’s Church Academy, St. Johns Country Day School, University Christian, Jacksonville University, Episcopal School of Jacksonville, Stanton High School, and University of North Florida all partner with NFSSE in our enrichment activities and club offerings.
The following enrichment programs and clubs are available to North Florida School of Special Education students: Art, FitClub, Cardio Drumming, Virtual 5K, Yoga, Karaoke, Music Technology, Group Games, Bible Study and Dance.
All clubs end at 4:45pm and students must be picked up at this time. Please arrange JTA pick-up no later than 5:00pm, if applicable.
Elementary clubs will be capped at 6 students. All other clubs will have a 10-12 student maximum.
Clubs cost $100 per session. Spots are limited and first-come, first-served. Register at My School Bucks.
We also focus on consistent enrichment activities both inside and outside of the classroom. Class field trips are designed to enhance and stimulate the learning experience for our students and include destinations like The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, The Museum of Science & History, The Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens, Jacksonville Arboretum & Gardens, The Jacksonville Library, Museum of Contemporary Art, Marineland and City Hall.
Monthly school-wide assemblies feature visiting musicians, authors, artists, animal encounters, biography studies and cultural fairs. At every touchpoint, we strive to enhance, empower and enlighten our students and provide them with unique opportunities to grow and develop, both individually and together.
