The Bermuda Ministry of Education espouses a philosophy of inclusion. As such all special schools were closed during the 1980s and 1990s. All students, with the exception of those with multiple physical challenges, are now educated in regular classroom settings. Support for these students, in the form of learning support teachers and paraeducators, is put in to place in order to increase the opportunities for students success.
Those students with multiple challenges ( primarily a combination of physical and cognitive challenges) are accommodated in one special school, Dame Marjorie Bean Hope Academy, which has a maximum enrolment of 25 students.
