Moved here for the Gates Lane International Studies school for their Autism program after all of the great reviews. So far they have been beyond a disappointment! If I could give negative stars I would!

I am now in eighth grade and I used to attend this elementary school. I loved it there. For the most part they had great teachers thats really helped me grow. When I was there I was in a reading class and I loved the teacher. I miss most of the other teachers that have left like the art teacher, gym teacher, music teacher, and my first, second, and sixth grade teachers.

Both of my children attend Gates Lane School. One of my children is in the Sail Program for Autism. He has been there since preK and is now in 2nd grade, this being his best year ever! the school offers a variety of programs to the general population of students and an excellent program for children with Special Needs. As with most schools, they do not have the resources they need to ensure there are no loop holes in their methodology but it isn't without great effort that they try to make up for the shortage. My daughter is very happy there and is learning on a higher grade level. My son faces serious anxiety issues due to the enormity of the school, however, the staff has been tremendous in meeting his unique needs and is always willing to make accommodations, even if the requests are out of the ordinary.

I Cristina say that Gates Lane School is the best school a kid can have. It has a lunchroom.A great art teacher who is very funny but strict when a kid is bad.It has a music teacher that sings like theres no tommorow.A health teacher who tells us some interesting facts.A Jim teacher who knows some great games.And I'm sure your child will find a friend that fits in with the games they play,the stuff they eat,and what they enjoy together as friends.So please let your girl or boy go to Gates Lanes School and be happy.

My son is in the 1st grade Sails program at Gates Lane. He is autistic. I can tell you from experience that Gates Lane is the best school in Worcester currently that offers an intensive IEP for Autism. They are doing an awesome job. On a whole the school is doing an AWESOME job.
