Auburn has been exactly the school my son needs for the past two years. His academic work is customized to his performance, and the embedded behavioral support has made a big difference in our lives. The faculty and staff are professional, friendly, and available. This school is wonderful!

My son attended for 6th, 7th and 8th grade. It made a huge difference in his life. Academically, he is 1 or 2 grade levels ahead. He's currently transitioning to public high school and we feel he is prepared. The teachers are AMAZING! They truly understand my son's needs. They've also helped him learn important social skills and most everyone that knows my son tells me how much he has improved socially. He also has the best friends he's ever made in his life. He is so happy and loves school. The first week he said coming to Auburn was "such a relief." This coming from a child with Asperger's and a history of stressful experiences at public school. I highly recommend Auburn. They currently have hired a new Head of School and the school's future looks very promising. We will always be grateful for the difference Auburn has made in our son's life.

My child has made friends and enjoys going to school since starting at Auburn. As a new school it has had some upheaval, but the benefits of the school far outweigh any negatives.

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.
