Does your child have Autism or Emotional Support needs? Are you looking for a new school for your child? NHS School Lancaster is now enrolling students ages 5-21 on all levels of the Autistic Spectrum and students that need emotional support. Our school offers highly individualized programming for each student, and includes services driven by the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). We offer intensive learning and instruction, small group instruction and natural environment teaching. Additionally, individual support services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and one-on-one support staffing are also included, as appropriate, for every student. At NHS, we work with the school district and families to individualize each student’s learning.

Our staff is trained in Trauma Informed Care and we continuously conduct emotional check-ins with students daily or as needed. Ask us about our morning meetings and social curriculum! Our classrooms are designed for safety and we provide small group emotional support sessions daily.

Are you looking for your child to learn life and transition skills that will foster integration into the community? NHS ensures that each student is working on transition skills that fit the students’ and families’ needs. Through preference and skill assessments, we are continuously working on developing transition skills to prepare students for the future. We are excited about partnerships we are forming within the Lancaster community.

I welcome you to take a tour of our school located at 2120 Oregon Pike Lancaster, PA and visit our website at We also had a recent article on us in Lancaster Newspapers.
