Mission and Philosophy



Gillen Brewer School Song




Founded in 1992, The Gillen Brewer School (GBS) is one of the few schools in New York City dedicated to transforming the lives of young children with a wide variety of language, emotional, developmental and learning disabilities. The school specializes in educating children with challenging, and often multiple disabilities including language-based and non-verbal learning disabilities.

Gillen Brewer is one of the only schools that works with children beginning at the pre-school level who have multiple disabilities. The school embodies a comprehensive and thoughtful approach that sets the school apart and which includes a particular set of distinguishing factors. We pride ourselves on our mission of making a difference one child and family at a time.

Gillen Brewer employs a rigorous, 12-month curriculum that incorporates the New York State Common Core standards, while adhering to an individual learning program that meets the educational needs of each student. The Pre-School Program serves children 2.8-5 years old and the School-Age Program serves children 5-10 who are classified as either learning disabled, emotionally disturbed, speech impaired and other health impaired.
