The rate provided by the former student does not surprise me, at all. It is expected that kind of reaction in people on the spectrum or neurotypical. There are three different Burger approaches and each of them has a reason. The first intervention will work with infants and toddlers getting the best of them and promoting many to the regular education; the elementary to protect them from bullism and streaming into inclusive education; and, for those in severe cases, the secondary that appears the described area in the previous comment. However, if the student had to remain in Burger was because he/she was not prepared enough to reg ed and regardless whta many people believe, teenagers in the spectrum or not are hard to manage but imagine for a moment, how his/her life would be in reg ed, affetcted not only by teachers but by students and parents. What is not clear for me is the response of his/her parents about that. I have personally talked with the principal addressing each and every issue and having excellent results. It is not fair for teachers and aids that we try to show Burger like Willowbrook. Burger is not an institution but the best place for Autism, probably in all USA.

I am a former student from here and now in college for a real job , DONT send anybody who actually has autism here, I prefer to stay anonymous, but what i might say may be unsettling, the teachers are rude the staff is insane and there is no justice for anybody with autism, they have padded cells in parts of the school called "Quiet Rooms" the teachers used to tell me to do a job like deliver the lunch slips, then call the "Support team" on me to haul me back to her room and thretten me with the padded cell, then order me to delever the slip again, only to call the support team because i didnt wanna do it because it would be constantly repeated, I watched the art teacher make fun of a student for being a Furry and bully him to stop drawing because it is Innopropirate, i had a teacher break my sony walkman because i was wearing a tom and jerry shirt, i had a teacher throw out my lunch because she didnt like what i chose to eat, this is not a good place for autistic children! I'm 22 now and i have a job in sound, and i'm still afraid of that place. please, if you care, send them to a real school, not something that eats away your childhood like this one

I can't say enough to express how wonderful Burger is! It has helped my daughter & my family get through the fear & worry of her Autism diagnosis. Everyone there truly cares for these kids. I don't believe the Garden City School district treats this school as they should.

My son attended Burger for just one year. The teachers worked miracles for him. They were patient and consistent.

My daughter has been attenting Burger for 11 years. The school is fantastic!! Teachers and parents work together to enable the child to benefit at their greatest potential. I cannot say enough to praise this school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
