Wesley School

Wesley School is a centralized Special Education Facility operated by the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District. 

Wesley School educates students eligible for special education services due to a Cognitive Impairment (CI), Severe Multiple Impairment (SXI), and Autism (ASD).  Students typically range in age from 3 - 26 years old. 

Wesley students come from the 11 local school districts and 4 area charter schools of Muskegon County. 

An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) team must recommend a student for placement at Wesley School.  The local school district initiates the referral process.  

 In addition to the Wesley School Campus, Wesley School also operates the MAISD Transition Campus, located at the ESC South Building.  This program is designed to aide young adults with Cognitive Impairments and Autism Spectrum Disorder in preparation for post-school experiences.
