After struggling in our home district for 6 years, my son, who has Cortical Visual Impairment, visited Banyan School and knew this was the school for him. The small class sizes and the dedicated teachers have made a world of difference. For a child with this type of disability, it has been critical to have teachers who are willing to talk to me and his private tutors to develop a coordinated approach to advance my son's learning. He reading skills have advanced 2 grade levels in a year. In addition to his academic growth, my son's confidence has improved. He loves to attend school! When talking to my son's private tutor, she indicated that her only regret was that we didn't find Banyan sooner!

I can't say enough about Banyan. My son has been a student for 2 years and he has blossomed. The small class sizes coupled with a truly loving staff makes the right combination. You feel the warmth and school spirit by just walking the hallways Props go out to mr camp in social studies, mr Rick in counseling and social skills, ms schenfeld in /reading, ms Michel in science and ms Wilson in math. These are just se of the teachers that my son constantly talks about The student body is diverse comprising mostly of children with learning disabilities without the behavioral issues. The have a school basketball for all levels plus they offer social activities for students on Saturdays. I highly recommend the school If you have any questions please call My cell and ask for Jeff 983-981-1937

I wrote a review in May 2011 and commented that the speech therapy could be stronger. In September 2011, the school made changes and the quality of speech therapy has greatly improved,. The new therapist does oral motor exercises and has a creative and effective approach for language development as well. Banyan can now better accommodate children with speech and language challenges.

I have struggled for many years to find the right school for my son, and Banyan was the only place that provided everything that I was looking for; an entire faculty who are more than willing to communicate with parents, a curriculum that suited my son, a fabulous PTO that includes family outings, and extra programs not found in other schools. My son is finally attending a school where he is accepted and understood.

Banyon School is a wonderful, special place which has made an enormus impact upon my son. It is a nurturing environment which not only stresses the importance of education, but social growth, as well. The entire program is integrated to reinforce methods of learning. Every one of my child's teachers communicates with my son's other teachers. Each child is addressed as an individual; my son gets the attention he needs because of small classes which contain no more than five or six students. My son was lost in the public school system; he has found himself educationally and has grown socially. He has become much more assertive and confident. My wife and I could not have chosen a better 'home' for our son.
