This is a school for children with special needs and exceptionalities, it doesn't matter what your special challenges are the staff at this school goes way above and beyond their duties to ensure that your student excels to the best of his/her ability. Classes are small giving your child the individual attention that they need to succeed. They have a 'multi-level' system which lets your child work at their own level in different subjects, they may work at a 4th grade math level while still working on a 2nd grade reading level so as to not hold them back in the subjects in which they excel which boosts their confidence keeping them more interested in their learning. They teach more than 'the 3 R's', they also teach life skills through experience and making it FUN for the kids. It truly is a wonderful school! The staff works very hard to make sure each student gets the special attention and tools that they need to learn. They also offer on site many other individual services, like occupational therapies and physical therapies that you may need. The y even teach you, giving you access to opportunities you may not have heard of, or considered. I cannot say how much I appreciate all of them and their hard work and what a blessing they have been to our family. They really do care about our children and go the extra mile. I might even mention that their tuition is very reasonable compared to other (I d like to say other schools like Hope, but there aren t any other schools like Hope), private schools in our area. I highly recommend them for your family too!

My son is 11 and with Mild Autism, He is in the 5th grade. This school has offered so much for his educational and emotional growth. We love Greater Hope!!! You will not find more deciated teachers anywhere. The staff is wonderful. I highly suggest it if you child needs a low teacher:pupil ratio for any reason.

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.
