My child has Asperger's Syndrome and we were welcome into SIS. The principal and the assist principals are great. They really listen to the parents. The teachers are wonderful and so is the support staff. My child has been at SIS since 3rd grade and now in the 5th grade. We have had some bumpy roads but with communication everything work out.

My child failed the 5th grade because he could not get the help he need from his teacher.Also the principal is very rude person behind closed doors.I pulled my child out of this school for the 2010 school year. I don't think any child should be miss treated for a ADHD problem they have! If your child has ADHD please donot send them to this school!
