The "education" provided through this institution does not even deserve a single star rating. High school students are provided with work meant for a child in early elementary school. Teachers mostly give handouts consisting of coloring pages and basic addition. While most patients at Kidspeace function at a sub par level academically, there is no push or effort to help them learn. They should be embarrassed for even using the label of "school". The schooling provided to the inpatient adolescents is even worse.

Worst place ever. They are behind the times in the field of child psychology and have some of the most arrogant staff, who will hold it against your child if you disagree with them. No help at all is better then this place, they are in it for the money not to help your child. They rather break up families then help the child.

Please, do not send your child here. Ever. You will regret it. I had the worst month of my entire life in this place. Besides KidsPeace itself being such a faulty institution that generally does not help kids but instead makes them miserable, the school here has some of the poorest academics I've ever seen. I felt like I was in 2nd grade the way we did work, and I was far behind when I got home. What a pathetic excuse for a school.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
