I have found Broken Ground to be a great school! My son came here mid year in third grade and was welcomed right away - He loves it here. They have been proactive in assisting him w/ his reading by getting him in to some extra classes, and he has many many extracurricular activities from which to choose. In addition, I love that I can email his teacher at any point throughout the day and get a prompt response! Terrific school - challenging for the child's brain, but not so challenging that they feel overwhelmed!
