This school is FINALLY addressing my son's reading issues, as opposed to labeling him as "disruptive" when he simply needed a structured reading program, as opposed to State Testing Prep! We love the progress he has made in the year he has been here. He can read street signs, movie translations and write thank you cards. They take the time to get to know him to figure out how to educate him, as opposed to discipline him. The public schools should take a day and visit the school...

We are so fortunate to have our son attend this school. He wakes up every day eager to get on the one hour bus ride. He FINALLY knows how to read. Reading isn't stopped in any grade, it is taught EVERY day through the Wilson Reading method with qualified, trained teachers. All the classes use computers or smart boards. Hands-on learning is stressed adn followed through on by staff. Homework is a minimum - READ EVERY NIGHT 20 minutes. There are monthly, mandatory class trips - a weekly hot lunch option, and a FLEX period twice weekly where the child chooses what subject to explore. Math and Literacy is individualized, and all other classes are small group in nature. Physical education has adaptive PE. It is somewhat old fashioned in values and is located in an older Catholic school building despite being non-sectarian. The bells ring to change classes.

My son goes to New Grange for two years. I,we, thank G-D that there is a New Grange and that Mr. Hagedus our principal is so wonderful, that Dr Sherman saw the need for our school and that the teachers are so great with unlimited patience. Zack is doing wonderful and can finally read maybe not on his grade level but with a slow and steady process. If your child is dyslexic, and one out of ten kids are. This is the school for your child. It is a crime that not enough teachers realize that their children are struggling not because they are disruptive, or dumb, but because they are dyslexic. As a parent I see what a possitive move it was to change Zack to this school where every person is working towards one goal; for all these kids to learn to read so they be the best.
