My child has Autism - Asperger's syndrome. He held no interest in school at all. He wouldn't read, couldn't write legibly, and struggled with basic math. After spending a year at Phoenix, he completely turned around. His scores are at grade level in all areas and above grade level in reading.

My son has ADHD and Dyslexia. By the time he was diagnosed he missed most of the crucial 2nd grade skills. Finding Phoenix has been a blessing. They test everyday to help overcome test anxiety and the teachers actually use the results to help the individual students! 3 Recesses and a no frills classroom help him concentrate. He went from barely being able to read a Step 1 book in 4th grade to reading chapter books and only started in December. He went from Ds and Fs to straight As. Plus they teach them social skills and how to make friends. They hold the students responsible for their school work and give them the skills to be on task. I couldn't be happier!

My son went to this school for almost three years. He was very bright but got lost in the shuffle of ops, he was frustrated and not getting the attention he needed to feel confident again. He excelled at phoenix, worked at his own pace and had a small classroom and excellent teachers who made him work to his potential. I recommend it to everyone i know, it was a blessing to our family. It is better than other options because it gives you remedial education and advanced all based on what skill level your child is at, and it is all day every day not after school like another 'tutoring' program that costs almost as much as one year at phoenix, and only gives you about three months of their time, maybe three hours a week. Mrs. Clark is one of the most intelligent educators i have ever met.

The reading writing spelling method is excellent. My children were all taught with the Spalding method. All lof them excelled in the above subjects until about 3 years in other schools when they began to decline in the other schools (private and public).

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
