CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - A local charter school is giving special needs students an opportunity to learn real-world skills in a perhaps unique, but also tasty, way.
The Spartan Perk Coffee Shop at the Community School of Davidson was launched by the school’s special education teachers, and has become a destination of sorts for regular education students, as well as those with special needs.
Special education students at the school run the coffee shop, giving them a chance to not only take and prepare drink orders, but also to learn life skills and give them a platform to interact with others.
Designed specifically for students at the school, patrons can order a variety of hot or cold coffees.
Missy Johnson and Sam McMillen spoke with QC Life’s Jordan Sawyers to talk more about the coffee shop’s purpose and mission.
