The Lang School is absolutely amazing. My child is academically strong and ambitious yet requires significant emotional support. The Lang School meets all of her needs in both areas. There are few schools in the region or the nation that can do that.
We worked really hard (2 years) to find the right educational fit for our son (now 10 y old) and are so grateful and pleased that we found The Lang School, which is an extraordinary and unique place. The Lang School provides an incredibly rich academic environment. The students are intellectually challenged - some of the first time in their academic careers and their focus/sensory issues (e.g. ADHD, Anxieties or Asperger's) is also therapeutically and positively addressed. The Lang School is only three years old and there is literally no other school like Lang in NYC, or in the region, that is built to address both the gifts and the challenges that 2e - twice exceptional - kids like our son have. Great commited teachers, wonderful parent community.
I don't like how this school raises money. I couldn't get funding even though they provide legal referrals for reimbursement. Usually NYC is an absurd cash cow for funding disabled kids of all levels but they are tightening their belts like everywhere else. The school is utterly unaffordable if you don't have a great lawyer. Also, while it looks like a nice place, the kids can't learn social skills from one another, they should consider integrating it.
We were initially a bit nervous about enrolling our son in a newer school, but we are so glad we made the jump. Our local public school was a real struggle for our twice exceptional (gifted +ADHD) child. The best way to describe it is that he was an outsider there, misunderstood by both teachers and students alike. At Lang, he's incredibly engaged and hard-working, loves his teachers and classes, has made a wonderful group of friends, and has truly grown academically, emotionally and socially. All because Lang "gets him" and is a place where he can feel comfortable and excel. The teachers are fabulous and truly care about the children in their classes and, as the previous poster said, the curriculum is innovative and the children are happy. It took us a long time to find the right school fit for our son, but was well worth the effort. If you're a NYC-area parent of a 2e chlid, I highly recommend checking out Lang.
We feel so blessed to have found this school for our son. It is a unique haven for twice exceptional (2e) kids. There is no place like it in NYC or the entire tristate area. The teachers are amazing, the curriculum innovative and advanced. The children are HAPPY. What more can a parent ask for?!
The energy and creativity at this school are amazing, and there is truly no other school like it in New York. For children who are gifted and have other learning differences, this school is a godsend. Caring teachers and staff, creative use of technology, and dedicated leadership make this school truly a special place for special kids.
