Hospital SchoolWhen the normal pattern of schooling is interrupted due to a child's hospitalization, it is important for patients to feel that they can continue to be involved with schoolwork.

The goals of the hospital school are:

  • To make the transition from hospital back to school as smooth as possible for the patient and classmates.
  • To maintain academic involvement with the patient's home school and teachers.
  • To utilize hospitalization as a unique and positive learning experience.

The certified teacher of the hospital school is part of a multi-disciplinary team that works closely with the whole health care team.

The hospital school is a unique learning environment that includes:

  • On site classroom
  • Group schooling
  • Bedside tutoring
  • Multimedia and online computers
