Spectrum Center and Schools

Spectrum Center Schools has been a leader in providing special education services to the San Francisco Bay Area since 1975. Our program was founded as an alternative for students whose disabilities prevented them from attending public school.

Spectrum Center's educational philosophy is based on the belief that all individuals can learn and lead productive lives in the community when provided the proper learning environment.

The primary responsibility for learning, therefore, rests with those teaching and not those learning. However, even the clearest vision is useless without effective teaching strategies. Spectrum Center has developed an educational and behavioral improvement model well-known for its effectiveness and accountability.

As the needs of each student and school are unique, so must be the service options used to address those needs. Spectrum Center's menu of services and products can be customized to meet the specific needs of a student or school.
