Sylvia Lougheed is the principal for the Brill School of Autism, a part of Tobinworld. She is professional, knowelgable, and always takes extra time to address the concerns of parents; best of all, she is bilingual. I can't tell you how great it is to speak with a concerned administrator who can communicate with me without a translator! It matters more than I thought! The opportunites presented by the staff are outstanding and students with Autism are always included in school activities, not something that I found a regular occurance in other schools. If you are looking for an excellent program then Tobinworld, and especially the Brill School of Autism, is the place for you!

I never saw an excellent school like this before. If any problem comes up the staff and administration take care of it right away. I am so happy with this school I decided to keep my son here until graduation. I wish I could keep him here longer! Judy Weber, the school director, is outstanding, helpful and caring. If anyone needs Non Public School services Tobinworld is worth the drive no matter what. I've never experienced a school with such caring, qualified and excellent staff in my life.

My son has been attending Tobinworld since July 2003. I am very disappointed in the fact that he is in 9th grade and has hardly been taught any algebra. I am looking into having him mainstreamed next year, and will not have him graduate from a high school that does not even send textbooks home to do homework. His homework is all one page printouts from the computer. This is unacceptable. My son is also to the point where he does not want to go to Tobinworld anymore, and he wants to be part of a normal high school atmosphere. Tobinworld does not even do yearbooks for the kids at the school-- which is a total shame! I am getting very disappointed in the fact that my son is not getting the education that he is supposed to be getting/receiving.

The academic curriculum at Tobinworld is very weak. Individual teachers who care do try hard to make due however, and were thankful for the first large shipment of new academic textbooks in approximately 6 years that arrived last year. A true arts program does not exist at Tobinworld, though high school students have access to acting classes. A staff-designed performance program that was successful for several years was cut during one of 2 successive 'budget freezes'. There are sports available consistently. Parents are discouraged from visiting classrooms one minute and encouraged to visit in the next breath. In short, Tobinworld's shortcomings have come to outweigh its strengths in an age where parents have a heightened number of placement options.
