The Bancroft School at the Phoenix Center for Rehabilitation and Pediatrics (Phoenix) is a unique collaboration between two leading institutions, which opens up a whole new world to children who are medically complex and technology-dependent. The program is based on the successful school model at The Bancroft School at Voorhees Pediatric Facility, the first New Jersey Department of Education approved private school for the disabled located within a sub-acute care residential facility. This on-site private school serves the educational needs of children who are medically fragile and technology dependent and require continuous skilled high level nursing and respiratory care.
