Unpleasant experience. They dumb down kids bc of huge range of disabilities. Hated this place. Only plus was awesome playground and nice classrooms. Bad staff and methodology though Directors very lacking in compassion and make fun of kids not being able to toilet at age 4,

I love this school. They have done such wonderful things for my son. His teacher went above and beyond. The staff is amazing and so are all the parents. Sad to see this school go, since my son has graduated.

Unfortunately I cannot echo the good reviews. I didn't like the director or my son's teacher or most of the people who worked with my son. I think the school has merits for the seriously disabled but not for higher functioning special education children. The person who gave a presentation even made a rude joke about untoilet trained children. Didn't like Miss regina or the director of the school.

Switched to Variety. Didn't think staff here was nurturing enough. Especially for such a well funded school.

It is a great school that offers children with developmental delays the early intervention they need to progress.

This school is the best for children with special needs. The staff very professional. It is highly well managed. The staff is caring and compassionate with the kids. My son loves the school and get so upset when he is absent. Clean environment and advance equipment. I highly recommend this school.

wonderful school offering special schooling for the academically challenged also offering regular pre school and nursery school in a warm and caring enviorment.the facility is top notch.clean classrooms.newer equipped very well.if your child has a speach delay or needs special education this is the best school to send them.they have a staff who is dedicated and know every child.all classrooms have atleast 2-3 will need to have your child evaluated by the county for special services such as speech or ot.If your child does not require that you can place your child in a regular mainstream class for nursery school and preschool.lots of parent involvement and great support network.You will not be dissapointed sending any child child is overlooked

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
