Pinnacle is for school for dyslexia and will only tolerate very COMPLIANT other processing issues children who are accepted only to fill slots to cover operating costs. Too long of day considering that more homework than public school (took 2-3 hours a night), too many non-educational movies watched in school, lack of fitness (20 minutes per day) in a car garage, and math covered only 60% of books (public school covered 80%). No accommodations for individual child as promised in interview. Also can't leave mid-year with half of tuition refunded no matter what is stated in interview. Counselor was good. Only Orton-Gillingham program utilized, no alternatives. If child is not dyslexic, still must do O-G program and no grade level reading/vocabulary/writing will be taught beyond what is determined for the general dyslexia classroom setting no matter what is promised in interview.
5 stars. My daughter attended 1 1/2 years and the school was a life saver for her. Wish we hadn't moved because this school was phenomenal.
At first this school appeared to be the answer to our prayers. With small (max of 12) class size, a special reading program for dyslexia and opportunities for things outside of the typical school offerings like yoga and pet care made this school worth the $10,000/year tuition. Unfortunately the discipline issues take most of the teacher s time and there is far too much time spent on movies, video games, and parties. It turns out there is really no good option in this town for children with reading problems since the MCCSC schools are far worse.
I give this school 5 stars. Both my son and my grandson goes to this school. They are both doing very well. This school was a life saver for my family.
The school is unique, incredibly good and half the price of other schools like it in other states. This school is a blessing if you have a child with dyslexia.
