Message from the Head of School
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the Gillen Brewer School!
The Gillen Brewer School is committed to educating and supporting our students to become confident, independent and engaged learners. We place a particular emphasis on partnering with our families in order to provide a nurturing and supportive environment. We strive for children to feel accepted and to develop the necessary skills for lifelong learning and independence.
In 1992, Gillen Brewer opened its doors to serve preschool children with special needs. Over the course of 30 years, Gillen Brewer has grown to serve children ages Pre-K - 8th grade and proudly offers a year-round, comprehensive and therapeutic program that has impacted thousands of lives. We have also expanded our program to serve more students who require a smaller class size.
Prior to the pandemic, the school began and will continue a series of strategic planning efforts to define Gillen Brewer’s goals and direction for the future. These discussions have and will take into consideration the best way to continue carrying out our mission and uncover the specialness in every child. We look forward to sharing updates with our community as we continue this important work.
