Daretown School



The mission of the Daretown School is to provide a highly individualized program consisting of special education, related services, counseling and family involvement in an environment that encourages appropriate social behavior and prepares students for successful return to less restrictive public school settings.


The Daretown School serves students in grades K-12 who:

  • Have been diagnosed as Seriously Emotionally Disturbed/Behavior Disordered;
  • are residents of Salem, Cumberland and Gloucester Counties, New Jersey; and
  • have been judged by their sending school districts to have exhausted all in-district, ‘less restrictive’, (LRE) educational alternatives.
