If you want a contained classroom for your child Palo Alto may be a better option for you. Particularily if the issue involves medical disabilities. The program is held at Briones, JLS, and Gunn. Sometimes they take children from other cities in the county. If you want your child mainstreamed the classes as Las Lomitas and La Entrada in the Las Lomitas school district in unincorporated West Menlo Park are a little smaller than the MP city schools.
The Menlo Park public elementary and middle schools are all amazing and have special education incorporated in the classrooms. You will be very happy at any of the Menlo schools, shadow at some of the classes and talk to district, award winning schools......
Good Luck to you
