I am always amazed at the fact that people look at the same thing and see it totally opposite. People are different. Consider that it is difficult to teach 'special needs children' and therefore while sometimes it may be teachers that are the problem, it can also be the student that is the problem.. I have always heard good things about this school. It is a much needed school in this area...concerned supporter of the school

This school is not as advertised. There is one teacher (the original founder of the school) who actually teaches & cares about the students. The others are not interested in helping and in general have very negative attitudes toward the kids. They lock the doors of the school around 2:45 (the school day officially ends at 3) & wait outside with the kids until they are picked up. If a child has forgotten something inside the school (a jacket, homework, etc), they are usually not allowed to go back to get it. Keep in mind these are children with learning difficulties, such as autism, ADHD, etc, who are quite likely to forget things. The school does have small class sizes, but other than that, I saw no special attempts to tailor the teaching to kids with learning difficulties. This school is not worth the tuition they charge or the 15-20 minute drive out to the country to get there. Save your money and time and look elsewhere!

My daughter was behind in her studies and struggling in social settings due to low self-esteem. My co-workers recommended Sumter Academy. Sumter Academy turned my teenager around. Not only did her attitude toward toward school and learning improve, but, our family life improved due to her elevated self-esteem. I am very thankful for the staff at Sumter Academy for helping my daughter achieve goals that may not have been reachable a few years ago. Michelle
