Mission Statement:
At TEN, we have the vision that each student who completes our program will have the skills and supports in place to be able to carry out an individualized, functional life plan.

Program Description:
TEN, located at Sheldon High School, is a creative 21st century program that provides appropriate instruction and opportunities to students, aged 14–21, with developmental disabilities who have educational needs that include a high level of staff support and a focus on functional skills. The program is a national model and maximizes students’ potential in educational, social, vocational, recreational and residential areas.
