My daughter has thrived since enrolling at Giant Steps 3 years ago. While she used to strike out with aggression, she has learned to use her words in non-preferred situations. She loves going to school. The staff is incredibly dedicated, and the therapies they provide in-school are outstanding, the teachers and therapists really design teaching methods to the individual student...it is not a one size fits all curriculum.

The positives first: GS has a strong OT/sensory program for Autistic kids. They have all the therapy services: Speech, OT, behavioral, recreational. The negative: The afterschool program is completely unaffordable. Almost 100.00 per day. Also the school did not honestly communicate with me in regards to my child's behaviors and progress. I was lead to believe that he was progressing when in fact, he was not. They sent me a well worded email that they could not support his needs when they reassured me at the beginning that this was THE school for autistic kids with difficult behaviors. Disappointed.

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 teacher 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.
