This is a very wonderful setting for students with challenges. The staff here cares deeply for the students and families that they work with. Our staff is very much like a family and there is support among us that helps us meet the challenges of working with this population of students.

The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
