This school / program is EXCEPTIONAL! Everyone from the transportation people to the social worker to the principal is respectful, professional and effective. My son had attended 5 schools in the last 2 yrs. with no changes in behavior or academics. The other schools in District 45 are garbage & should model themselves after this program. At first I was apprehensive to enroll him because it is a "hands on" school but he only required that intervention once. The entire program/staff should be commended. This was the first time in 9 years that my son had a positive school experience and the outcome was outstanding. Thank you District 45, please fire the entire staff @ Jefferson and institute the program /director there to possibly save alot of kids who try n attend there but are "handled" in a very demeaning way that goes against everything a child educational professional should be.
