An opportunity for my child to shine. This school has less than 150 students. The child/teacher ratio is extremely small, lending to an environment that allows my child to do well and get the individual attention he needs. Everyone is treated with respect. This school is a bit underfunded, I suspect due to the number of students, but the teachers and principal make the best out of every penny and they somehow still manage to have the top technology available. I wish there were after school activities, but the summer camp is a bonus! Thank you Birchwood!

This school does wonders for kids that just don't fit inside the lines of mainstream. Mainstream doesn't look for solutions to a given issue. They just call you and tell you your child is bad. Birchwood calls you and says, hey, your child did such and such and here's how we handled it. You have monthly meetings with your child's teacher and therapist. But you can make meetings as often as needed. This school is incredible. There are only 4 kids in my child's class! Every time there is an opening there, the applicants (teachers, psychologists, etc) line up around the block for the chance to work there. Everyone knows each other. It's been the best thing that ever happened to us.
