In an environment of love and acceptance, the inclusion program at MQP strives to ensure that students with disabilities are offered a challenging, faith based education with high expectations of academic, social, and spiritual growth. Through continuing education and training, Mary Queen of Peace supports the dynamic capability of our staff to teach children with a wide range of abilities and gifts. We embrace the reciprocal benefits that inclusive education brings to our families, our school, and our parish community, as it follows the teachings of Jesus Christ who said, “Let the children come to Me,” and “For whatever you did for the least of these, you did for Me.”
The Mary Queen of Peace inclusion program welcomes children with disabilities of registered parishioners, to the extent that we are able to provide appropriate support, resources, and accessibility. Each student/family requesting admission to the inclusion program at Mary Queen of Peace will participate in an evaluation process to determine if the support and resources available within Mary Queen of Peace are in the best educational interest of the child, family, and learning community. This process may include parent interviews, diagnostic evaluations, reports from previous schools, observations conducted by the Mary Queen of Peace staff, and assessment of school capabilities.
