My son has gone to Golden Branch Academy since 2008 and has thrived when the public schools didn't have enough teachers to handle his special needs. The teachers & principal is caring and nurturing and they teach how a student can best learn based on their individual personallity and disability. It is NOT a glorified daycare. If you have a special needs child, you know how difficult it is for them to function in the public school setting where the teacher-to-student ratio is 25-30 kids per teacher. At GBA, the ratio is about 8-9 students to one teacher so the students get the individual attention they need to function. They teach the kids based on their own individual personalities and special needs. It is a wonderful place for a special needs child to get an education and not get lost in the public school system.
