Lakeview Learning Center’s highly trained, experienced staff members work closely together in the belief that significant learning can be achieved through emotional understanding and personal growth.  To foster and nourish this process for students, Lakeview Learning Center offers:


  • ​Individual and group counseling based on a social problem-solving approach
  • ​Family counseling and parent awareness sessions
  • ​Multifaceted behavior-management system


The educators at Lakeview Learning Center understand the importance of providing the guidance and support necessary for students to develop the skills that will help them function successfully within the community. Lakeview Learning Center offers learning experiences that help develop interests in areas that will serve them later in life.  In conjunction with the sending district, Lakeview Learning Center also provides transitional planning services to assist students as they prepare for the future. The goal is, always, to help each student to reach his or her full potential in order to participate meaningfully in life and become a productive and responsible adult.


Lakeview Learning Center utilizes a comprehensive behavior management system designed to promote positive behavior choices. Such a behavior management system was developed out of the necessity to provide a framework within which students can learn and demonstrate appropriate behavior throughout the school day and everyday life. The behavior management system is monitored by our professional staff on a regular basis. Students earn points throughout the school day during instructional periods, homeroom/hallway, and lunch for behaving appropriately in categories such as being on time to class, following staff directions, use of appropriate language, and group interaction.

Students may use earned points for the privilege of attending a reward field trip, or special outing, and points can be redeemed for merchandise at the Lakeview School Store. Field trips additionally provide the opportunity for students to develop, practice, and refine social skills in a real-life environment outside of the traditional school setting. Students qualifying for reward trips offer their input on the destination, and we try to accommodate their requests whenever possible. Past field trips have provided educational and recreational opportunities at locations such as:

 

  • The Statue of Liberty
  • The Bronx Zoo
  • The Intrepid
  • Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey
  • Museum of Natural History
  • Medieval Times
  • CBS Studios
  • High Point State Park
  • ​Pontoon Tour of the Meadowlands
  • The Funplex
  • Bowling alleys
  • Dave and Buster’s
  • Mennen Sports Arena Ice Skating Rink
  • Yankee Stadium
