This place has no clue what they are doing as far as managing teachers and staff. They have a huge turnover rate for their instructors. Seems as though they get rid of the best and hire the inexperienced. The Executive Director only has to manage a small amount of people and can't seem to handle that.

VIA is incredible. I can't believe how much they are able to do with children all over the spectrum, while still working with the child and the family as individuals. The teacher turnover is actually much lower than the public school system, and even the teachers who are only there for a few years are clearly passionate about their work and most seem to leave to continue education or advance in the field of autism education. I would recommend this school to any parent of a child with autism.

We moved here so my son could attend VIA. There is a high teacher turn over, which is disappointing, tho the teachers that stay, really love the children and provide a great atmosphere. The school is ABA based, but they need to include curriculum in all the age groups for it to be successful. VIA is a great alternative to Public Schools and I would recommend it to any parent of a child/ren with autism.

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 student 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.
