Located in the heart of the community so students can learn in the community
Our students are welcome members of the neighborhood — and the neighborhood gives them every opportunity to learn and reach their potential.
Located in downtown Hudson, Massachusetts, the Darnell School fosters skill-building for students through community inclusion, relationship development, and work and recreational opportunities.
We have built strong community relationships with local grocery stores, businesses, restaurants, the library, the post office, and town departments. Our students also use the local Boys and Girls Club for their physical education requirements, and the Special Olympics Center in nearby Marlboro.
The Darnell School facility is bright, comfortable and fully accessible. The facility offers large classrooms, smaller teaching spaces, a library and media room, a fully equipped kitchen, shower and changing facilities, vocational rooms and gym/sensory areas. Every space is dedicated to providing our students maximum learning potential in a safe and accepting environment.
Our school operates 221 days per year with the school-day hours running from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
