The Conover School, a public separate school (serving three school systems) for students with exceptional needs and disabilities, under the administration of the Newton-Conover City School System, is located in Conover, North Carolina. Enrollment includes about 100 profoundly affected students (ranging in age from 3 to 21, with over 50% wheelchair bound) who are divided among fourteen homerooms. A new addition expands the cafeteria, food service and kitchen areas, and provides a new gymnasium. Renovations included an expanded life skills area, improved corridor access, and expanded special mobility-equipment storage, so this aging school could better accommodate the Districts' most exceptional students.
