At The Helix School, we nurture your child's capabilities
The Helix School nurtures the capabilities of children with autism and autism-like developmental challenges in a dynamic, relationship-based, interdisciplinary educational setting. Our integrated curriculum is tailored to our student’s developmental level, sensory processing differences, and emotional-regulatory needs. At THS, we emphasize motivation-based, kinesthetic and sensory-based learning. Take a look around and see what makes THS so unique!
“Helix embodies a collaborative approach of family involvement within their educational system. Our experience has been that this approach really helps our son take what he is learning at Helix and apply it to everyday life in other environments. This is not something our son experienced before attending The Helix School. Life skills, advocating needs, the arts: Helix educates the whole child and the education is beyond just bookwork. I believe Helix is one of the most comprehensive special education programs worldwide. We couldn't be more pleased with our son's program.” - Current Helix Parent, Nicole Hitchcock

Our Founder's Story
Marjorie McMorris was looking for a school for her son. Certainly there are a lot of choices in the Bay Area, but she had something particular in mind, and when she could not find it anywhere in the greater Bay Area, she built it herself.
What Makes THS Truly Unique?
Many programs call themselves integrated. And they are, to a point. At The Helix School, we take integration to a whole new level. And it turns out, a truly integrated curriculum is at the heart of your child's success.
