<p>The Katherine Thomas School is an independent school, helping preschool to 12th grade students with language and learning disabilities and those with high functioning autism. Its mission is to enable students to reach their full potential through a multi-sensory, developmental, language-intensive curriculum.</p> <p>The educational goals are determined by the student's individual needs to achieve success at home, school and in the community. The school also stresses developing a love of learning in each student to expand their curiosity and thirst for knowledge.</p> <p>The school &nbsp;has full-day, multi-grade special education classes with a low student-to-teacher ratio. This is possible because of a student body of less than&nbsp;100 students. Multi-disciplinary teams of licensed speech-language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, and social workers are fully integrated into every class.</p> <p>Art, music and drama classes are part of the curriculum and are based on the Montgomery County Public School System.</p> <p>The staff includes special education teachers, teacher assistants, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers, psychologists, special subject teachers (art, music, drama, physical education, restaurant management and child development), a library technician and a health room technician.</p> <p>The school shares the building with TLC activities.</p>
