not my school but i visit it recently and saw a boy putting his hand over a girl and the aid was walking around seemed lost. the kids where on their cell phones and it did seemed like it was a daycare center not a school. I was very disappointed.

Worst school ever. They promise the world and deliver very little. No testing was ever performed and so much focus was put on "the arts" that I wonder if they even have an academic curriculum. Don't even get me started on the gossip and rumors that were spread about my family directly from the owners of this school even after we had left. I wish I would have known this was actually a glorified daycare for disabled children. Don't even take a chance on enrolling your child. They will fall way behind, your reputation will be ruined and your personal business (true and not true) will be told to everyone. Don t say you weren t warned.

We are a 21st Century school with 21st century, brain-based advances in learning! We use "Multiple Intelligences" and "Cooperative Learning" approaches to teach our students. We are Nationally Accredited with the National Private Schools Accreditation Alliance. We provide all the core classes for a student to graduate with a standard diploma. In addition, we provide Art, Music Theater, Concert Band, and Tae Kwon Do. All of these are included as a part os our full curriculum. I have my Doctorate in Exceptional Student Education, Mr. White has a Masters Degree in Exceptional Student Education, and each of our five Teaching Assistants received a Teaching Assistant Certificate from Ashworth University. All are current college students, as well. We have 25 students this year. That gives our students an approx. 1:3 student teacher ratio. Your child will always have 1-on-1 help when they need it! Most importantly, we teach your child as a whole, gifted person---not just a kid able to pass the FCAT. With excellent instruction, cutting-edge teaching methods, individual testing with a Doctor of ESE, the arts, martial arts, social skills training, and more, YOUR CHILD WILL BE A SUCCESS!

Skip this school, I wish I would have. Will be with drawing my child from this school tomorrow. Had a parent meeting with them the week before Thanksgiving and asked why they only taught math twice the whole year, they got a bit upset, and told me if I didnt like it, go elsewhere. They are taking state funds, but dont teach! A school day there is Tae Kwon do, lunch, meditation & Band, unless they are working on a play. At that time 90% of the day is the play. The owner of the school spreads rumors, and tells each of students private business to other students.

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.
