Under the new head of school, we were extremely disappointed in Park Century's competency. After a couple of months, we pulled our child out of Park Century. It became obvious to us that if we kept her at Park Century she would NEVER be ready for a "main stream" high school. First, they did not challenge our daughter academically. She would finish 5 days worth of school work in 1 day or so. Second, they put their high profile celebrity students ahead of the other students. This caused our child a lot of pain as all the students weren't treated equally. Despite it being very costly, we had to pull our child out of Park Century for her academic and emotional well being.

You'll notice the positive reviews are prior to the new head of school taking over. Unfortunately, many changes transpired once he started. The other reviewer is correct, Park Century has lost its heart. The therapeutic aspect that made the school so special, is gone. The individualized focus is following close behind. It is a very different school than it once was.

Although this school specializes in learning disabilities, they are lacking HEART, which is vital in helping children who have been traumatized in other regular school settings. We had a very uncomfortable experience attending this school and, being one of the most expensive special education schools on the west coast, you would expect a lot more patience and empathy.

I believe they need to fully understand the emotional state of a child with special needs, create an environment to help them feel safe and practice empathy in order to bring out the true nature of these children.

After struggling in the public school system to get appropriate services for my son for 3 years, we finally realized that we would never receive the services that would allow him to learn. This school specializes in teaching children with normal to above average cognitive abilities who have specific learning disabilities that interfere with the learning process. Thank God for Park Century...without the school, I'm sure my son would have reached a state of chronic depression.
