The Frost School, established in 1976, is a nonpublic special education day
school which serves children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disabilities,
autism spectrum disorders, and related special needs. Frost consists of four unique
programs each providing a supportive and structured environment integrating specialized
academic instruction, counseling, transition services, and behavioral modification
specific to each student population. Our 12-month school program serves students
in grades 1 to 12, ages 6 to 21 who need a supportive and structured environment,
combining specialized academic instruction, behavior management, and related services.
The Frost School is approved as a Special Education School by the Maryland State
Department of Education and serves students from Maryland, Virginia, and the District
of Columbia. Classes are small and students receive instruction based on their IEP
(Individualized Education Program). In February 2003 the Frost School joined the
Sheppard Pratt Health System
family of services.
