An affiliate of Texas Children's Hospital, The Rise School of Houston operates a year-round educational program, with approximately ten weeks off for holiday and spring/summer breaks. Each school day, Rise delivers intensive education, therapy, and intervention to its students. To achieve their maximum potential, each child at Rise receives an individualized instructional plan. A master's level teacher in special education leads each classroom assisted by two teaching assistants, ensuring a 3:1 student-to-teacher ratio. Additionally, an adult with developmental disabilities is employed full-time as a classroom assistant, helping each classroom function more effectively and creating a workforce as diverse as the student body. Rise is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), representing the highest mark of quality in early childhood education. Programs implemented at Rise are carefully designed and interconnected to prepare all students to succeed in a mainstream public kindergarten class.
