There is no other school in Georgia that has found the perfect blend of academics and social/emotional support. Our child has THRIVED at this school. He caught up an entire year of math within the first three months of school and is reading beyond his grade. His brain is stimulated and it has regulated him as a result. He finally has real interest in his peers and they all just "get" each other. It is a beautiful thing to have your child excel in all areas. All of us are so pleased with this school that we are pushing for expansion to higher grades. Cloverleaf is a wonderful place and a true miracle for our family.

Coverleaf is amazing! We have a high functioning Aspergers child who is a gifted learner, but also needs understanding and skilled teachers to help her build emotional control and social skills. So many schools either challenge academically OR support special needs, but not both. Cloverleaf does both beautifully with amazing teachers that provide the most detailed feedback and comprehensive assessments of our child (not cookie cutter testing). I can't speak highly enough about the school.

This school is a game changer. Very few school are doing both academics (on grade level) and offering social/emotional support. Cloverleaf does it all and well. Plus, the teachers continually raise the bar of expectation. As a parent and a special needs consultant, this school receives my highest rating. It is a privledge to be a part of the school.

If you are looking for a school that creates incredible results for kids with ADHD, high functioning Autism, or other learning differences that can get in the way a social and academic growth, you owe it to yourself to come see the Cloverleaf School yourself. Talk to any parent, any teacher, or any student, and you will see why the school is growing from 3 to 12 ( current fall enrollment now at 8) students in only 10 months. Incredible teachers. Unique facilities. And, as you will hear from any of the families who have children there or any other direct relationship with the school, breathtaking results for the kids. Just check it out yourself and draw your own conclusions.

My son is changed. He is a different boy. Well, not so much "different," perhaps, as open and confident and available and communicative and chatty. For anyone who has known him, this registers immediately. He seeks them out to tell them stories, making sure they are looking him in the eye while he recounts them. Let me repeat: "making sure they are looking him in the eye." I didn't know a school could be like this. And while I'd like to believe I haven't done a miserable job as an adult, I occasionally wonder how my life could have been different if I had gone somewhere like The Cloverleaf School rather than schools that carefully and painstakingly taught me how to go to my "happy place," rather than engage in my classes. I will always be glad he has this school in his life.

My son's former school was helping him with his social issues, but his academic needs were not being sufficiently addressed. At Cloverleaf, their 4:1 ratio is allowing his teachers to individualize their instruction so he is able to be supported where needed and pushed forward where possible. They are using a new tool, Learner Profiles, to help him, and us, better understand how he learns. The teachers are so passionate about finding new ways to reach the kids and different means of communicating the materials. I see my son making huge leaps every week! We couldn't be happier!

I can't say enough about how committed and caring the teachers are here. They have worked so hard to make sure that all of the kids grow/develop in their own unique way. They keep the kids moving and having fun but not at the expense of academic substance. One activity, for example, had them learning physics by building and riding on elevators and then talking and writing about what they had discovered. I am also impressed that these teachers' technical knowledge in the field of education, special education in particular, matches their level of commitment. All of them sit on the cutting edge of curriculum development for kids with ADHD, ASD, and other learning issues. Most have travelled to other countries to see how education is conducted elsewhere. Therefore, each has been able to bring her own unique experience and considerable skills to bear. In our own case, my son has made dramatic improvements in all subjects, but especially in reading and writing, where he had particular difficulty. He no longer has tantrums about these tasks, and he will even pick up a book on his own! He loves his friends and he actually doesn't want to leave school at the end of the day.

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.
