La Amistad Behavioral Health Services
 Learning Center

Maitland, Florida
Renee Pancoast – Director of Education/Principal
[New Perspective]

Since 1970, La Amistad Behavioral Health Services has been meeting the needs of children, adolescents, and their families who are seeking a structured, supportive environment in which to deal with academic, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. The Learning Center at La Amistad is an on-site school that is dedicated to providing quality, individualized education for students in elementary, middle, and high school grade levels. The curriculum includes Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and various electives. Also offered are therapeutic outings and community service projects with content-based themes that provide lessons in life-skills.

The students at La Amistad Learning Center engage in “active learning” through the extended curriculum including, SAT Prep, GED Prep, vocational counseling, and on-line courses through Florida High School.

The Learning Center is based on the philosophy that attention to the individual needs of each student, accomplished through small group instruction and one-to-one attention, will result in academic excellence for all.
