The Gap School5

The GAP School is the best kept secret in Sarasota! My only regret is that I didn't find out about it sooner. It would have saved my son and our family a lot of heartache. This is a close-knit school that feels like a family. The dedicated staff genuinely care about my son and he knows it, which is why he feels comfortable being there. They know each and every student as an individual, so when they say they offer "individualized education" they actually mean it. (For example, my sixth grader is in algebra.) They recognize and celebrate small successes that go unnoticed in a large classroom setting. I chose this school because of its social skills program. At The GAP School my son has learned how to verbally express what he is feeling instead of keeping it inside. This school values acceptance and I've been surprised on more than one occasion by the empathy he as expressed for others. This school also excels at teaching the students to take responsibility for the choices they make, while maintaining a "tomorrow's a new day" attitude. I cannot say enough good things about The GAP School, but don't take my word for it, come and see for yourself!
Great teachers really respect each student and very positive towards learning and all learning styles, stand out teacher is Joshua who teaches p.e.. excellent teacher with great way of reaching and praising students.
I don't know why anyone would send their child to a school who doesn't believe having certified teachers is a necessity, especially if the child has special needs. Stop concerning yourself with profit and get some teachers who have degrees in special education!
