I attended Kradwell in 1987. I was a senior in high school with many family and academic problems. The school staff, the structured environment , and the other kids in similar situations all helped me to realize what my issues were and helped me discover how to correct them. Kradwell became a family unit for me. Thank You so much for helping me turn my life around. Proud to be from K2.

What a great learning environment they have created at Kradwell. My son was being passed over in the public system even with an IEP in place. The public system does not understand or deal well with anxiety disorder and bipolar disorder. Kradwell created a program to meet his needs and he was catching up in his studies within the first month. He is also gifted and talented - a trait that the public system was never able to tap into. At Kradwell he is on honor roll. They have a great facility and a very talented staff.

This school is a blessing for parents with kids who have behavior disorders... 5 to 1 student to teacher ratio, 1/2 hr classes and the kids get to move at thier own pace. My daughter suffered in public school for a year and a half until we found Kradwell. She was getting D's if she was lucky and the teachers would not understand that she was having issues due to being bipolar. One month after being at Kradwell and she was getting A's and B's like she used to in middle school. Awesome school!!!

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.
