We relocated from across the state specifically so my child could attend this school. This not-for-profit school was started by a mother on a mission to give her child the best quality education, and she has achieved her mission for many children. The teachers and curriculum are focused on each individual child, and the low teacher-student ratio makes it possible for each child to truly have an individualized education plan. The Master's and PHD levels of supervision of each child's individualized theraputic programs are unique to this type of school setting. As a professional educator that has worked in various settings from public to private schools, and as a supervisor for college student teacher interns specializing in Exceptional Student Education, the fact that I relocated to give my son the opportunity to be a part of this program, says it all. It has been the best decision I ever made.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
