This school is amazing - it is a fully inclusive school that is able to give each child exactly what they need - they will do everything to make sure a child succeeds, my child feels loved and says this is the first school that he understands what he is learning - the only school like this around - my child has been here now for 4 years and the growth I see I could only have dreamed of. Don't take anyones word - go see for yourself
Terrible school I would not recommend this school to anyone. I have been working with children with special needs for 10 years and have never seen someone so heartless and so cruel. The principal will promise teachers and parents the world at the end of the day nothing gets done. She also has no background in special education and does things so they are convenient for her and not for the students. Save your time and your money and send to a school that will help your child.
For a school that specializes in children with special needs they are sorely unprepared in this area. They don't meet monthly to discuss the children their growth and their progress. They seem to have no plan in place to help achieve goals. Everything is ambiguous and nothing gets done. They don't pay their teachers on time and they don't have special ed teachers. There is a big turnover in the teachers and there is very low moral.
I am a parent for my son who attends this wonderful school. I rate this school five stars. The school has helped my son enormously and works with his talents and interests in order to further his education in a positive environment. The staff is very kind and very qualified to teach. My son has made huge academic gains due to their individualized student learning approach.
I am thankful every day that i found this school - my son is in HS and has been in this school for 4 years now - he has grown socially and accedemically . He has come out of his shell and it is only because of the loving and caring staff at this school.
Great school! Very caring staff, warm family-like atmosphere and qualified special education teachers. The staff and teachers bend over backwards to meet the individual needs of every child and are always willing to meet with parents to modify curriculum and techniques if needed. This school and staff are truly dedicated to the children and families and my son has been doing so well academically and behaviorally since starting here. A unique place!!
