Over 150 staff are employed, including certified special education teachers and assistants, nurses, psychologists, social workers, therapists and administrators. Staff work together with the goal of providing stimulating and challenging learning experiences for all students.

Education programs offered at the Langan School at Prospect include preschool and school age classes for students ages two through twenty one. A hands-on learning approach is incorporated to enhance development of specific skills. The curriculum emphasizes academic and pre-academic activities, and is aligned with the New York State core learning standards for preschool and school aged students.

Both preschool and school age teachers develop and implement activities to support the goals and objectives of each student’s individualized education program. Major performance areas include social and emotional development, language and communication skills, cognitive/intellectual abilities, motor development, pre-vocational and vocational skills, health and safety skills and approaches to learning with specific learning outcomes for each area.
