Center Academy is a fantastic school that is sensitive to the child s individual needs. The school goes above and beyond to develop my child s strengths (they even purchased more advanced books specifically for him) and work hard with him to overcome his weaknesses. They focus not only on the curriculum for each child, but also on the emotional, physical and social well-being. The teachers and Ms. Cooper are amazing. This school provides the perfect setting for my child to have a positive school experience.

Very disappointed. Be very careful when choosing this school. It is not for everyone. There are a few things that are alarming about this school. Safety is one of them. Also, it is very hard for students to learn given the environment. I've been told this by several different students of it being hard to learn when there are students who have more severe disabilities that are constantly shouting out. If you're looking for a good school, sorry this isn't one I'd recommend.

Wish I could give more stars. Center Academy in Coral Springs understands my daughters challenges. Unlike Public school happy to let her waste away. Center Academy understands what it takes to teach a child with cognitive and AD challenges. She enjoys school, and is now reading on grade level and understanding math too. Her self esteem is sky high. She is getting A's and B's in algebra :) The Principal is very involved too.

My son just graduated from Center Academy. 2 years ago we were getting hopeless. He was failing in public school. We found out he had a slight processing disorder and public school was just overwhelming for him. Center Academy was a life saver. He graduated with all A's & B's and is very excited about going to college.

Center Academy has been a true blessing for my son, Michael. Michael Began Center Academy 2 years ago, after failing at 2 other high schools. This May, 2014, He is graduating! Before he began Center Academy, we were afraid he would never graduate from high school. He has become a confident, goal oriented, young man and I attribute that to the nurturing and positive environment we found at Center Academy. Mrs. Cooper, the director, and Mr. Nelson, his primary teacher, have been wonderfully supportive and without them I do not think he would be where he is today. I am so proud of him and so happy with Center Academy!!

An interesting setting designed to assist special needs children. I would recommend this school for children who are unable to keep up in the regular school system.

Second to none for us! To begin with Mrs. Cooper, the school's Director/Principal "gets" our kids. She has bent over backwards for my son & my family :) The teacher's are extremely patient & kind yet at the same time, consistent & great educators. My son, like most, has very strong points & some weak. Reading,Spelling, Vocabulary are easy for him, as he loves it! Math is another story. The complexity, multisteps, & his lack of interest in this subject have taken a toll on him (and me) in the past. Not anymore:) He said, "Mom, you know the fractions I was struggling for months to understand ( at his prior A rated, top FCAT rated school ) to add, subtract, multiply them?" Well, he said to me, " I learned it all in one day from my teacher at Center Academy!!" Not to say the prior school didn't try but, Center Academy accomplished. I drive, on average, roundtrip to & from this school 3 hrs. a day. Why? Because this school is so worth it. Thank you Center Academy!!

My daughter has High Function Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, and Diabetes. In March of 2012 the private school that she attended couldn't attended to her needs, so the only option was public school. She don't do well going from a school under 1,000 kids to over 3,000 kids, was to overwhelming. I put her in Florida virtual school at home, that worked okay till Jan 2014, as our family was going through lots of changes and loss. I started looking for a school in Jan 2014 knowing that I felt that I would not be able to teach high school material, she needed so much extra help, I visited Center Academy and was impressed not only with the school, but the principal Ms. Cooper. The school was small perfect size for our daughter. We decided to have her finish 8th grade at Center Academy she started mid Feb 2014 and loves the school, her teacher( the best she has every had) and the staff. She is making friends with the students plus getting A and B, understanding the subjects. I have final found the school that fits my daughter perfectly, it's awesome! Thank you Center Academy for giving my daughter a place to fit in and caring about her from the first day she step into the your school.

My son has attended The Center Academy since February 2013. We pulled him out of public school in the middle of 7th grade due to the poor support we were getting regarding his IEP. Ms. Cooper and her entire staff and beyond awesome! My husband and I have been extremely happy with the progress our son has made. He was averaging C's & D's in public school and that was turned around to A's & B's. As a result he has great self esteem and is overall a happy boy again. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Center Academy for the care and patience in dealing with children who have comprehension struggles.
