About Special Education

The Glenbrook High Schools are committed to providing an excellent education for all students. Every student has the right to a free and appropriate public education that is designed to meet his or her individual needs. The special education program is committed to providing a supportive environment in which our students can develop educational, personal, and vocational skills. In order to meet the needs of all children, we provide an array of educational programming. In addition, the school district works in partnership with Northern Suburban Special Education District (NSSED).  This partnership allows District 225 to take advantage of educational opportunities and services for staff and families.
