The Guild has a reputation for having difficult kids, restraint-happy staff, and poor academic programming. Think twice.

This is a private day and residential school for students age 6-22 with complex special needs. Small class room size, with low student to teacher ratios provide students room for maximum growth. The curriculum is student focused and individualized based on IEP goals. Students learn through small group and 1:1 experiences. This school believes in community based learning and students go on educational field trips to generalize skills at least once a week with their classroom (often more), and every day in their residences. Students participate in sports through Belmont sports and every student is invited to the all school prom which is held once a year. Student housing is located in homes in nearby neighborhoods and have a family style atmosphere. The staff are fantastic, very friendly and adaptive to student needs.
