Each year, 28 students are admitted to the Campbell Children's School (CCS) program, and are divided into 4 classes. Spaces are also available for students referred by Grandview requiring short-term post-surgery placements. Each class has an integrated group of children of various ages (usually JK, SK, and Grade One) and abilities, and includes students with multiple needs and children with severe speech needs. Daily transportation is offered.
Our students' home boards may be Durham District School Board (DDSB), Durham Catholic District School Board (DSCSB), Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board (KPRDSB), or Peterborough Victoria Northumberland Clarington Catholic District School Board (PVNCCDSB).
