The Arbor’s program is based on the belief that all children have an extraordinary capacity to learn and will realize their greatest potential in a structured, purposeful environment. See how our unique approach to education makes us the most comprehensive special needs education program in the Houston area.

What makes The Arbor unique is our commitment to accepting students as young as 6 weeks through 18 years old, regardless of their diagnosis or lack thereof. As such, our students represent a wide range of cognitive and physical delays.
