Founded in 1974, Rock Brook School was established in order to provide intensive education services for children ages 2 ½ -6 with language and sensory motor difficulties. It was the first comprehensive education program for preschool special education students in Somerset County. The low student to teacher ratio and the emphasis on remediating language and communication skills at an early age were new concepts for the educational and professional community. In addition, occupational therapy was provided to work on balance and coordination skills, which also were a new component of programming for children with developmental disabilities. Over the years, Rock Brook School has grown and adapted to the needs of its students and the community. Now serving children 3 -21, Rock Brook’s curriculum includes pre-school, elementary, middle and High school programming. For more than 40 years, the school has demonstrated best practices to the special education community and continues its legacy of quality education providing supports and ensuring success.
