About Us

Northwest Allen County Schools is committed to developing the talent and nurturing the creativity of each learner. As a result, our special education students are provided with meaningful and engaging opportunities that foster each student as they grow and develop.  We provide our students with quality instruction in teaching students how to learn (use of SIM – Strategic Instruction Model). All of our students are held to high expectations, and we value inclusion and collaboration.


NACS offers a full continuum of special education services for our students from age 3 to 21. Special education includes specially designed instruction to meet a student’s unique educational needs and related services to support a student’s educational program. The services range from support for students placed in general education classroom settings to self-contained specialized programs for students whose educational needs require more intensive services and support.
