Hawkswood School


"In every classroom, in every hall, at every stop and on every journey during the day, I noted that teachers and professional staff were actively engaging the students. Teaching is happening everywhere, and the students loved it."

Bulletin Board that says "Share our similarities. Celebrate our differences."

For forty-three years, Hawkswood School in Eatontown, New Jersey has been a respected provider of high-quality special education services to children with autism and complex multiple disabilities. Since 1976, when we opened our doors, school districts and parents have trusted us with the special education of students, ages 3 through 21.

We provide a comprehensive, individualized education designed to allow each one of our students to become empowered, fully self-expressed, productive, and contributing members of their families and communities.

Our respect for the children we serve and their families is evident everywhere, and in everything we do.

Parents often visit a number of different schools in search of an appropriate program for their child with disabilities. When they get to Hawkswood, many tell us that, from the moment they walk through the front door, they knew Hawkswood School was different.
