Welcome to Sidney Lanier Center!

  • Sidney Lanier Center offers a continuous and high quality education program to Kindergarten through transition at the age of 22, and is the only public school in the district with this grade level configuration.  Prior to the 2014-2015 school year, the school was a school for students with intellectual disabilities, but we are now a public school with various programs.

    Sidney Lanier has a wonderful garden which is maintained by Mrs. Moffett's specials classes, as well as receiving assistance from other students throughout the school. You can checkout the updated garden information here!
