Lake Michigan Academy was a lifesaver for us. As the only 1st through 12th grade school in West Michigan devoted solely to kids with learning disabilites, it puts your child on the path to success through low student to teacher ratios, teaching styles customized for your child's unique learning style, and a compassionate environment that fosters your child's personal growth, rebuilds their self-esteem and shows them how to show others they way they learn best.
We have had our 15 year old son in LMA for less than one year. We cannot say enough about the willingness and support of the entire staff. They truly teach with our son's needs and learning style at the forefront. He has had limited success in several previous schools from an early age. He is now consistently doing A and B level work and his teachers like him and he likes being successful in school. WIN! WIN! Looking foreward to more of the same next year.
Best school for our 15 year old son. He has struggled with school for so long we didn't have much hope for success. We have had him in LMA for less than one year and have witnessed a complete successful turn around. Excited for his future as he now gets A's and B's!
I would strongly recommend this school to anyone that has a child with a LD. I am saying this from experince i went to this school and graduated from it. I loved that it was smaller classes and that i was only girl senior.LOL but any way i leaned more and remembered it. in the first two weeks than i did in two weeks in a public school. This school ROCKS!!!!!!
Our daughter showed significant improvement within the first semester. She is learning, versus just having someone else partner with her and doing the work. This is one of the best kept secrets in West Michigan. If you have a child with a learning disability I would strongly recommend you look at Lake MIchigan Academy.
For children with Learning Diabilities (which is all this school covers), this school is a fantastic place. Our son went here after being emotionally destroyed by the public school system. They don't have a large staff, but have very small classes so they can individualize the attention. They rely on the student's public schools for extracirricular activies. If the public school has tested your child and said they don't have an LD, but you are still suspicious, I would recommend an independent test by a place like Human Resource Associates. The public school has no incentive to detect LD's, it just means more work/trouble for them. The principal is new since our son attendend.
