This school has been a life saver for my son. Both of us were apprehensive about him being there at first but after the three day orientation I felt much better. We were able to meet staff, see our children and meet the owner. My son has been there for just over a year now. Parental involvement is expected and encouraged. We receive two phone calls per week and can visit him whenever we want within the guidelines of the schools rules. Which do allow for visits 7 days a week. My son is getting all the care he could possibly need and their program is designed to help them catch up in school, so he is on his way to graduating from high school on time. :) The staff here are great and I have come to know several of them on a more personal level, which helps me feel like I've made the right choice in this school. It was a really hard decision to send my son to a school out of state, but I am relieved that his experience at Cinnamon Hills has been positive.
