Keifer School is one of the best schools for children that I have ever known. My youngest son, who is 9 years old, has suffered from severe Bipolar Mixed Type, ODD, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder since he was about 3 years old, but wasn't diagnosed until a few years ago and has had to undergo many inpatient psychiatric treatment at various medical facilities. He has an IEP, but after years of having him at 4 different grade schools, there just wasn't enough help for children like Chandler, most of the schools didn't even have a special education class for children with behavioral disorders. Since my son has started school at Kiefer, his grades and performance have improved almost 100%. The staff and classrooms are very small, but they provide so much additional one-on-one classwork times with each student, as needed. Their staff are very trained people, who have learned how to deal with and work with children with similar behavioral disorders like my son's. It is nice to know that their is a school out their to help these children struggling with these problems and they are people who do not quit on these children! It's a safe alternative school to turn to, when a child is unable to attend public or other private schools due to special behavioral disorders, and my son can still get a very good education because of Kiefer. Please vote for his school! Thank you.
