Partners in Education
Dear Future MDE Partners in Education,
MDE School currently serves 60 children in the 2020-2021 school year and has steadily increased enrollment by an average of 10% each year. MDE is entering its 12th academic year and has served a total of 233 children with special needs since opening. Our goal is to expand our staff and services over the next three years to serve 75 students. We are also continuing to develop our life skills program through community partnerships to include vocational skills training as our older student population grows and prepares to transition to the workplace.
We invite organizations to play a key role in helping us become the cutting-edge campus we are striving for. Get involved and partner with MDE School to make a difference in our school and the community! The MDE Partners in Education program is designed to support the education of our students and staff by establishing relationships between local businesses/organizations and MDE School.
In return for your generous financial support to MDE School, you will help our students in developing life skills and receive a personalized academic education.
Thank you in advance for considering a partnership with MDE School. We look forward to sharing this incredible journey with your company and our team!
