Welcome!

    Stephene D McSweeney Letters  

The Stephen D. McSweeney School is a District 75 high school for students with special needs.

We serve students diagnosed with various disabilities including cognitive delays,  autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and multiple disabilities until the age of 21.

Our organization consists of a Main Site, an inclusion site at Lehman High School, off-sites at the Monroe Annex, at Intech Academy

and at DeWitt Clinton High School as well as several full time work sites.

Our Mission
At the Stephen D. McSweeney School, we believe in educating and preparing our students to meet the challenges of living independently in contemporary society. Our school is a student centered learning community that believes in educating the “whole student” with a focus on integrating academic, social emotional, and vocational development with self-advocacy and college and career readiness. We believe a student’s success is found in a sound partnership between the school, the family, and the community. Our transition services focus on the vocational aspects of education, providing our students with meaningful work experiences in our school and in the community. While our inclusion students may graduate with a high school diploma, the majority will graduate with competitive and supported employment or an association with one of the many agencies that serve our students.
