This is an amazing private therapeutic day school for students in grades K-8th with emotional and/or behavioral challenges. The staff is extremely dedicated and the program is fully aligned with NYS Learning Standards and the Common Core Learning Standards.
I have sent several students to this program. One of the best private schools in the capital region for dealing with students with behavior problems. Outstanding staff! Would recommend this program highly.
Parents beware. This "school" is a joke. The kids are placed there due to behavior issues yet, they do not have a behavior specialist or a behavior plan for each child. Th e entire school follows the one plan. Should each child have the same IEP. There is NO parent involvement. If you try to get involved you are bascially locked out. Forget it if you actually know what you are talking about and try advocate for your kids. No one is putting te kids first. Oh don't forget that if you want ti see the program and your child you must call ahead and make an apt. For after school on what ever day the director decides to come to work. Th e new director will lie directly to your face so be careful. I woukd also be concern about physical restraints and time out room. HUGE MISTAKE TO SEND KIDS HERE. Beware
