Community Based Education
Community based class teaches our special needs students about independent living. Some of the real world things covered are shopping, banking, cleaning, personal hygiene, housekeeping, appropriate clothing, appropriate behavior in public, etc. This is accomplished both in the traditional classroom setting as well as field trips into the community. Students visit the Denham Springs Community Based apartment twice a month. Students attend community based field trips twice a month in order to get real world experiences.
Walker High School community based students are also very active in the STARS program: talent show, prom and end of the year activity!
