MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – The Arc Kohler School in Mountainside recently received approval by the Union County Board of Education to serve children and youth ages 3 to 21, as the school previously served children up to the age of 14.

Principal Bonnie Cagney said that this change would allow students to remain at Kohler School throughout their education, promoting continuity in learning and growth.

“Each time a new child enters Kohler School, families can rest assured that placement will be for the duration of primary and secondary education, with staff who know the child and can continue to build on his or her progress,” she said. “For older children entering our school, we can now offer services that they may have not been able to receive elsewhere.”
