Lewis Special Needs Academy

My name is Karen Lewis, and I am the founder of the upcoming school Lewis Academy for Students with Disabilities located at #3 Fortune McCarthy Street Vance River La Brea in Trinidad West Indies. I migrated to the USA  at the age of 20 and pursued a career in Education and School Leadership. During this time, I began needing to give back to the community I grew up in, so I am opening a Special Needs School.

The school's vision is to prepare students with special needs to attain the highest functioning level within society. We aim to provide a much needed educational service to students with disabilities in Trinidad's rural part.

Being a  Teacher and Vice Principal for the last 21 years,  I gained valuable knowledge and experience about special needs children and their learning in the classroom.  Being a parent to a special needs child, I know firsthand the challenges parents face to get good schools and resources to meet their children's needs.

Opening a Special Needs School and sharing the skills and knowledge I acquired over the years is the most fitting way for me to make a difference in children's lives. By assisting the most vulnerable of kids, we can change the lives of our special needs children forever.  My main goal is for children with a particular need to have their educational needs met and aspire to become independent and productive members of society.    

I plan for our grand opening in August 2021  and will need all the support I can get. I am kindly asking for your financial help in my name towards the school to provide items such things as security for the building, maintenance of the property, salaries for staff, morning and aftercare programs, and sponsorship of students for families in need.

If you would like to obtain further information about the school please us at
