Each summer, the Latham School is privileged to have summer interns work during the school day. Summer interns spend their days assisting in various aspects of the school house and work alongside veteran staff. The interns are allotted time to learn about special education and the private school setting, and receive the opportunity to meet and work with the amazing students Latham School serves. Please meet this summer’s interns!
