This school does not even deserve one star. Everyone that works at this school is clueless when it comes to dealing with children with special needs. The students are not challenged at all. They do the same work every single day. A Robot could run the school. The teachers and staff at the east campus are very rude. I heard the turnover rate for staff is very high so the students do not have a constant routine. The school also seems to just hire anyone off the streets. I regret every putting my child into this enviorment. The teachers and staff solve every problem with restraints. It is not a positive enviorment. The OT at the east campus is the most uneducated person I have ever met, and has the worst social and communication skills, but thats comes with no surprise because ACCEL will hire anybody that walks through the door.
I visited this school that our child's current school is recommending for placement. Any student would be happy here I suppose since they are not challenged - there are low expectations. Happiness is the only measure of success that "these children" are held to. Accel is doing well I suppose because society has low expectations of "these children" and just want someone else who has patience to deal with them and keep them away from real life and society. In my opinion, Accel is segregation in the disguise of "happiness".
I went to tour this school today. I was impressed! This school offers a lot. The students all seemed happy. I hope to send my child to this school.
accel on 35th is a great school. my son is very happy there, and has been there going on 4 years ,again a GREAT SCHOOL and some of the best teachers.thank you all, for doing a great job.
This school is Awesome !!! I am a school bus driver and drop off my students every day and pick them up . The staff and teachers are fantastic ! and work so hard for these kids , that no one else can really handle . Their strategies , patience , caring efforts stand out way beyond other schools I drive for. This school really earns hardworking efforts of dedication in helping challenged students who have extreme special needs .
This is the best school that my child has attended. We are happy we feel safe. The teachers are very helpful. Know what they are doing. And most important have the class room aids have common scene. And let's be honest some.
The teachers and assistants at this school, especially the preschool division are absolutely amazing. The children love them so much that they dodn't want to go home. The way that the staff has emplemented lesson into a game that the child chooses and likes to play is brilliantly creative. The teachers obviously care about their students and love being able to teach them. I have never seen teachers with so much patience and I would have no doubt in my mind about registering my child. I haven't seen any place that was able to teach these children as well.
