The Pyramid Program at Lewistown Elementary is a specialized special education program that serves elementary aged children who have significant social and emotional difficulties. Students are placed in this program through a County Individualized Education Program (CIEP) Meeting. These students, in grades K through 5, come from various Frederick County schools and while in the program continue to work towards a high school diploma. Intensive special education and therapeutic services are provided as well as a small structured learning environment. As students are successful in the Pyramid Program, they have opportunities to be included in the Lewistown general education classes with non-disabled peers. This inclusion is in accordance with the least restrictive environment as mandated by special education regulations.
