We have been so happy to join the PBS community, truly it's such a sense of family and community at this school. It's great to be a part of everything, no odd man out syndrome here, everyone working together to make the lives of students and their families better! The best IEP experience(s) we have ever had, I love hearing about all the POSITIVE strides my child makes rather than hyper focusing on challenges.

My son goes here. I get nothing but negative comments home maybe a note now and then that says good day. It's very frustrating to have only this option for my child.

My son is severely affected by Autism. As a professional and parent in the disability community, I know that placement is the first important decision we make for our children. Not all children will thrive in the same educational setting. Paul B. Stephens is comprised of many teachers, aides, therapists, and administrative faculty that have been touched by someone with a disability. Their compassion and willingness to help a student to succeed is relentless because their hard work is driven by love and inspiration. While many parents of children with disabilities receive routine calls of their child's behaviors, I have received calls from the school that highlight my son's achievements. When my IEP team called for an urgent meeting regarding my son's behavior, I will admit I was nervous. To my pleasant surprise, it was a productive meeting that gave all team members a chance to collaborate and share ideas on how we could help my son through his struggles. I like the leadership approach the school takes. I would like to help in increasing parental involvement at the school. Parents of children with disabilities are among the hardest to reach because of their daily struggles.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
