    Park School is a self-contained, special education school that is jointly funded and operated by Evanston Township High School District 202 and Evanston/Skokie School District 65. Students who attend Park School require a separate public day school environment to best meet their individual needs. Park School primarily serves students from ages 3 to 22 years with low incidence disabilities, including (but not limited to) intellectual disability, multiple disabilities, physical impairment, deaf/hard of hearing, visual impairment, and autism. All placement decisions for Park School are made by an IEP Team.   

    Private and Residential Placements

    Students who require intensive supports, interventions and related services that exceed the resources of the ETHS general school setting, may be considered for private or residential placements.  All placement decisions for private or residential placements are made by an IEP Team.
