My child attended GLA. The teachrs went above and beyond what is expected to provide my child with the tools to be successful at college. Many of the tools or what I refer to as 'tricks' made a difference in college. Simple things like how to check class notes, how to ask for help from professors and guidance counselors, scheduling, and just as important social skills to make and keep friends.
This school helps students who have no where else to turn. It really does make a difference in their lives.
Great Lakes Academy has been a wonderful place for children who didn't get the kind of instruction or encouragement they needed in any other environment. It can be a place for children to become successful and feel positive about themselves.
they give all student's hands on attention...they really care if about all of us students.
Every child has an opportunity to learn regardless of their unique learning style.
Great Lakes Academy is a great school for kids with various learning differences. They provide a safe and nurturing environment with caring teachers and staff.
My son started at Great Lakes only a few months ago and I feel like the luckiest Mom in Plano to have found this school. I feel like I have my son back ! The dedication of the teachers and staff are unmatched. They care about each child as a whole being and take interest in what is going on in their lives so they can educate each child in their own unique way. My son is now doing extra credit at school and just a few short months ago at public school he was failing in many subjects ! This school defenitely gets five stars
Great school, my son is doing so well here. The staff is incredible and the class size really contributes to the school's overall success with their students.
This school is incredible! The administration and teachers go above and beyond to help the students. My son absolutely loves going to school here. And this is a child who previously detested school. Great Lakes has changed him into a different person. He now has a high self esteem. He has friends. He has respect for his teachers and his peers. He didn't have any of this before attending Great Lakes. We were at the end of our rope, trying to get teachers in the public school sytstem to be understanding, and still provide him with a decent education. My son was failing most subjects before starting at Great Lakes. He is now getting A's in all subjects. I strongly recommend this school for any parent who has a child that is struggling in the public school. This school specializes in ADHD kids, but also accepts kids with other learning disabilities.
