Rosedale School

The Rosedale School offers tailored educational opportunities and quality instruction for children with severe special needs, including children who are medically fragile or need intensive behavioral support. The campus also houses the Transition to Life in the Community program, which prepares older students for postsecondary life. Austin ISD will modernize the Rosedale facility, delivering a new campus located at the current Lucy Read Pre-K site that is custom-built to meet the needs of Rosedale students.
