This is an excellent school with wonderful staff and caring administrators. My son attended this school and he learned how to read at a very young age. My nephew and nieces attended as well and were nurtured both academically and emotionally. I love Little Citizens! The school is a hidden treasure with many outstanding resources and incentives for students. They have so much to offer!!

Do not send your kid here if your child is innocent, send your kid here if he's got serious behavior problems (Cursing all the time, hurting people, doing drugs), being hyper and not doing good in school is not a good reason to send your kid to school. This school changes your kids, they learn all right, but they're not the same anymore. This school is full of violent and disturbing kids, sending your innocent little child would not be a good idea. There are many bullies in the school. It's not the school that changes your kids, it's the kids who are in the school that change your kids. This isn't a review, it's a warning.

This is a wonderful school that provides quality education for students who have mild to severe special needs. It is run by a loving and crative staff who really believe in the children and have their best interest at heart. It is also a safe enviornment for the students and staff to work in and has more than one campus location. I would highly recommend this school to others who have children with academic an/or behavioral issues.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
