My granddaughter is bipolar (she's been hospitalized at least 3 times due to out of control behavior). While she did well in a public kindergarten, she was unable to function in a public school after that, and believe me, the school system here tried their hardest. My granddaughter has been at A.B.E. since 2nd or 3rd grade and she thrives there. They are able to deal with her behavioral issues and she has blossomed as a student. The small class size has enabled her to work at her level. The teachers and administration are genuinely invested in seeing her succeed. I think this school is awesome. It is definitely the perfect school for my granddaughter's needs.
