Serving exceptional students with care since 2004




Pacific Learning Center NW (PLCNW) was formed in 2004 by a group of educators seeking to provide a positive, predictable, and supportive environment for special education  students who were not succeeding in a traditional setting.  Working cooperatively with local school districts, parents, and private therapists, the PLCNW immplemented a methodology to provide highly individualized instruction in academics, organization, self-advocacy, and social integration. PLCNW maintains a positive, supportive environment designed to build trust and confidence.
PLCNW staff are selected and trained to provide evidence-based special education services through collaborative and direct instruction. PLCNW maintains a low student-teacher ratio and minimizes transtions to help students focus on making social and academic progress.  All students participate in organizational and social-skills building practicum while making acdemic progress at their own pace to assure mastery and slef-confidence.  Each PLCNW student is closely assessed and monitored to assure compliance and progress with his/her IEP goals.
Since PLCNW is a special-purpose school, only students with current IEPs can enroll.  PLCNW staff does not determine eligibilty for special education, but we are able to create, implement, and monitor progress for students who have had an evaluation by a public school psychologist within the last three years.  At this time, PLCNW is able to privately enroll students in kindergarten through eighth grade and enroll students referred by school districts in kindergarten through grade 12. PLCNW is licensed as an approved private school for stuents k-8 and accepts public school referrals for students k-12.
