Glenn Stratton Learning Center (GSLC)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Located on the Good Will-Hinckley campus, Glenn Stratton Learning Center offers clinical and educational services to students in grades kindergarten through 12 who experience significant social-emotional and behavioral challenges. In keeping with the mission of Good Will-Hinckley, GSLC focuses on education, discipline, industry and recreation—all components of the Roundel—in our daily work. 

At GSLC, we believe that every student wants to be successful in their home, school and community. In support of this belief, our mission is to work collaboratively, using a positive practical approach in guiding students with diverse needs and backgrounds so they can experience success.

Students who attend GSLC have been referred through their school district’s special education process. The student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) and Day Treatment Service Plan (DTSP) serve as guiding documents throughout the school year. Students participate in a full academic and recreational day schedule.

Maine State Learning Results serve as the framework for academic standards. High school students work toward academic credits/standards in conjunction with their home school’s requirements.
