I went to this school for two year. If you are a parent of a child with Asperger's do not consider this place. The students are barely verbal and all resources go to low functioning children. The problems experienced in a typical high school are not dealt with by the administration. The work program is designed for menial blue collar jobs, not jobs that successful children would wish for. Oh yeah, and they physically restrained an eleven year old boy. I did not want to inflame the school, but I need to be honest. A public school is a much better place for an Asperger's student than New Vista School.

New vista school is one of those schools that changes the life of a special needs kid. My son has been going for 6 years and he has learned not only academics but has learned out to control outbursts and make friends. Before the school he had very few friends. I am so impressed by this school and the staff. It is really a gem and should be the model for other special needs schools.

My son has been at New Vista School for one year and the changes that everyone sees in him are amazing. I am not concerned with credentials since all the credentialed teachers he had in public school did more harm than good. I love the daily social skills classes and how there is always a staff member immediately available to intervene at the teachable moments. That makes all the difference in the world. His confidence has gone up so much and he has friends now both in and out of school. BEST thing we ever did for him.

I researched this school and went in to ask questions. I was very surprised that neither the administration nor faculty were board certified in Applied Behavior Analysis. Their answer was "we know the techniques."
