My son has been at the Aaron School for four years, starting in second grade. I will say this about the Aaron School: overall our experience has been very positive, as it's been a good place for our son to learn. The teachers he's had have been excellent; really dedicated professionals, as well as exceptionally smart, innovative, and skilled in teaching children with learning disabilities. The drawbacks are that it just isn't physically big enough, the classrooms are tiny and most are without windows, the gym isn't really big enough, there isn't really a big enough auditorium. The arts program could be stronger, the sports program just isn't enough if your kid likes sports, particularly as they get older. The lower school is a good one for the child who has special needs but is pretty high functioning, but it gets less good as the grades get higher. Our son thrived here, but is outgrowing it and we are leaving after fifth grade. I would recommend it for the right child. Like many families, we didn't love the administration but we did love the teachers.

Aaron accepts a variety of kids with special learning needs - some very bright, others more impacted. I can say that in general, the educators there were very caring and attentive. They are devoted to our son's needs and strengths. We don't agree with all the decisions they've made, but does my son love his school? Yes. Has he thrived and learned there? Yes. Am I happy with the communication btw parent and faculty? Yes. It's not perfect for everyone... and sometimes, kids who shouldnt be there are admitted. It's a different school than Gateway or Churchill and is pretty academically demanding (which is good for us).

Overall more concerned about tuition and less concerned with working with families . Programs were very helpful and productive yet leadership was difficult to work with

Unfortunately, we had a terrible experience with this school. There is a lot of turn over and the staff is much less experienced than you would expect for the type of children enrolled as well as the tuition cost. Our child did not want to go to school and it was an extremely stressful time for our family. Therefore we can not recommend this school.

We have been thrilled with Aaron. We find the teachers and specialists to be incredibly commited, caring and approachable. My son has flourished over the past few years at Aaron and we are thinking of mainstreaming! A great, great school!
