Pankalo Education Center serves students in grades K-8 who have emotional behavioral disorders (EBD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), developmental cognitive disabilities (DCD), and certain low-incidence disabilities.

Our approach

Pankalo has an integrated arts theme; the goal is to provide a compassionate, creative, safe, and child-centered learning environment, where our students grow academically, socially, and personally, while tapping into their creativity.

Students enjoy a palette of activities that:

  • Allows our unique learners to access core content academics in creative ways

  • Provides a calming and creative atmosphere

  • Connects educational philosophies to the arts, helping our students build relationships between their inner and outer worlds

  • Gives our students tools for communication, appropriate emotional release, and self-regulation

  • Treats students with respect, dignity, and compassion
