This is a beautiful school that serves kids who honestly may have nowhere else to go to learn in a nurturing, accepting environment. All of the teachers are trained in speech pathology and in the short time we were there I saw marked improvement in the kids, including ones who seemed utterly lost at first. It would be nice if the public schools provided this level of attention and help, but they don't, and we are lucky to have this school.
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!
