When kids endure prolonged hospital stays, routines like schoolwork can be a comforting return to routine. It’s why the Hospital promotes education on-site at 1 Darn Cool School. Working in partnership with local schools to implement 504/I.E.P. or re-entry plans, academic services are available to all children enrolled in Kindergarten through 12th grades, or for students aged five to 21-years-old requiring special education. An active mind is a healthy one.
Our staff of full-time certified and Master’s level educators work with students in our fully-equipped classroom, or at bedside. Even classroom volunteers bring professional backgrounds in education. At 1 Darn Cool School, children heal as they read, write and even enjoy Fine Arts Fridays. Along with generous support from Desert Schools Credit Union, your donations allow us to continue to help kids at the Hospital get schooled.
