A great place and resource for parents who are worried or concerned about their child's education. Staff are caring and very knowledgeable. Parents have a sense of peace and don't worry about getting called to come pick them up or being sent for "discipline". Instead, out of sync behavior is an opportunity to teach the missing skill. This school gives parents peace, confidence and hope!!

Lake Pointe is a very calm and caring place for students who might be at risk of falling through the cracks of the "system", or may be considered on the autism or related "spectrum". Created with a long term and forward Vision, this school focuses on the child's individual and unique needs, involving parents as partners, working collaboratively with any outside professionals, and more so on the child's strengths and gifts rather than limitations. Little.miracles occur daily, amazing even the staff on what these children are able to accomplish once they experience the dynamic team and individualized programming. Contact the school for information and a tour. Seeing is believing!

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.
