This school is wonderful. The support they offered the children and parents was amazing. I loved teaching there and seeing the children succeed.

I can't say enough about this school. They''ve been wonderful to my son and he's ready to be mainstreamed. Every child should have a school as amazing as Cappello to attend.

A one of a kind school for children with special needs. My daughter is very disabled, but she has done great progress there.

Excellent school, the very best teachers and therapists. I have 2 children who have PDD and attend, it is a miracle how they have improved and grown. The environment is loving and nuturing, and your child is not just a number here. If your child is lucky enough to attned, you will be pleasantly surprised...

My daughter started kindergarten here in October after much fighting to get her in this school. She has a mild form of autism and is thriving here. The whole staff is understanding of these children's special needs. I love JFC and the staff!

I have a son with Autism and multiple disabilities. The teachers and therapists at JCS amaze me. My son is becoming a different child with their guidance and loving care. He is learning by leaps and bounds and is becoming more socially appropriate all the time. JCS is truly a Godsend.

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.
