I am not sure about this since my kids do not have learning differences. So I cannot comment.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Teachers are helpful and always ready to offer support. But the level of school work expected in intense.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
There is a lot of homework, but it is manageable. Plus all the assignments are up on the online site so you can plan ahead and see what's coming up.

This is a great school. The academics are top notch and someone coming from a public school will have to work extra hard to keep up. However, the teachers are always there to help you and support you. They offer after school hours which is great way to get the help your child needs. The sports and clubs are wonderful and there is something for everyone. Its a small school, so everyone knows everyone and the teachers and students are really warm and welcoming. You instantly feel like you belong to the school community. I would highly recommend this school to everyone. Its totally worth the price tag.

Small classes. Everyone knows everyone. Academic is a focus area but then so are other activities. A bit of let down is folks with excessive money can get into this school and bring the overall quality a bit down. Though it is these Richie Rich's funds that help some of the lesser affordable families with smart kids to attend a high quality school like this one..

I think it is a big rip off. Bellevue school distrcit and surrounding areas on the eastside have fabulous schools. It is about status. They do not get to know the other kids in their neighborhood like all the others. They also have an attitude like they are better than kids that go to public school.

I am an alumna of Overlake; it is a great school! Highly recommended to anyone looking for a College Prep school with a fast-paced and rewarding learning environment!

Both of my sons are attending Overlake. The teachers are responsive and provide a challenging curriculum. The school is inclusive and offers a huge variety of activities. It has been a wonderful experience so far.

This is my son's 6th year at Overlake and my daughter's fifth. We are thrilled to be part of this community and are so thankful for all this school has done to educate our children beyond the academic goals we have for them. Overlake is definitely about the 'whole' child. You will not find a school with a more dedicated faculty and staff. The only complaint we have is that it's so beautiful that college campuses may seem like a let down. The tuition is also tough to take but it is absolutely worth every penny!
