Institutional schools are schools situated as part of a larger residential population that require education, for example in hospitals and prisons

Hospital schools

A hospital school is a school operated in a hospital, generally a children's hospital which provides instruction to all primary and secondary grade levels. These schools help children regain academic progress during periods of hospitalization or rehabilitation. The schools are most often accredited and run by the local public school system, funded by the state, and are based on the same curriculum and testing mandated by the state as is practical for the students. Enrollments are low when compared to traditional schools and teachers much provide instruction for many grade levels.[1]
