My son attended this school for SEVEN years. I can't understand the negative review that was written...especially since the comment of "I'm pretty sure the bruises are coming from frustrated staff" is completely inappropriate. First, don't make statements like that unless you're sure...if you're sure, then there are ways to deal with it. Besides, if you think that's what's happening, then why is your friend's child still attending this school? That makes no sense. The administration and staff are fabulous here. The kids are all treated like 'regular' kids, and their individual needs are gone over every year and goals are adjusted and discussed...they have proms, dances, fund raisers, sports, cheerleading (with real uniforms), field trips, cooking classes, etc. My son thrived here. If there were staff injuring students, it absolutely would not be tolerated. If you're looking for a special high school for your disabled child, this IS the place to have them attend.
A friend of the family has an autistic girl that has unfortunately attended this school most of her life. The girl comes home filthy and with bruises. Whenever the mom has gone to question the state her daughter comes home in she's always told that no one knows. This poor girl has suffered so much. We have personally witnessed her being ok and bruise free during school breaks and then all of a sudden when school starts she magical happens to have bruises. Not tiny bruises, huge bruises that I'm pretty sure happen after getting KICKED by frustrated staff. This school is a shame and horrible place for kids with disabilities. Let me point out that the girl can not talk so of course she has no way of saying who is doing this to her at that place. Horrible and so unfortunate.
Great school to work out. Staff is great they really care about the students. Special Ed centers are important to have it gives the parents and student a choice where they can play sports just like at a regular high school. Principal is a nice guy.
This school is amazing and really involved. The staff, teachers, an administration do a fantastic job! there are also many school activities for students and family.
