Where to start...? Capitol School has been an amazing find for not only my child, but our family as well! Our move to Austin was specifically because of Capitol School. Public schools back home could not offer him the attention and services necessary to make a difference. Due to my son's Auditory & Visual Processing Disorders, along with other things, small class sizes became a must! Capitol School not only provides that- they provide an impeccable nuturing environment that is school wide! Their speech pathologists, who also serve as teachers, educate and encourage the students on a daily basis in such a way that learning has now become fun for our son and the everyday tears from years past are no more! That in itself has been a blessing! The entire staff at Capitol School possess an invisible set of compassionate wings that only their students and families are fortunate enough to know and experience! Our time here is limited, but our memories and the educational stepping stones that our child will acquire have far surpassed any and all of our expectations!

Capitol School is a private, non-profit school for children with speech and language difficulties. It is an amazing school and we feel so lucky to have found it! My daughter is in preschool there and she loves it. The teachers are speech therapists and ours has helped our daughter so much. They also understand and address other issues too, such as sensory processing difficulties. The very low ratios are perfect. It is a small school with a great sense of community. I really can't say enough good things about it!

This is the perfect school for a kid who has a language delay.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
