Strengths-based, whole child education that fosters the development of academic skills, social skills, and life skills...
We focus on each student's individual needs and competencies.
Welcome to Ives School!
Elizabeth Ives School is a small, State of Connecticut Department of Education approved, non-profit, special education therapeutic day school that is located in North Haven, Connecticut. Founded in 1963, we service students from the ages of five to 21, who come to us with a wide variety of needs, including social emotional disturbances, learning issues, language issues, intellectual disabilities, mild spectrum disorders and more. We work closely with families and providers in order to develop the right mix of therapeutic and academic strategies necessary for success.
Student referrals come to us from all over South Central Connecticut and beyond. The majority of referrals come from local public school systems. We also get referrals from outside providers and parents.
For additional information, or if you wish to schedule a visit, please call Linda Zunda at 203-234-8770.

An announcement will be made and we would likely go virtual on inclement weather days, unless there are issues with power and internet. "Virtual" will appear on the news station's announcements. These are also available online at:
Parents and guardians can also sign up for closing, delay, and early dismissal alerts on the websites. Once signed up, you will be notified by text of any closings, delays, and/or move to virtual from in person instruction.
