See what our families are saying about us!
“I greatly appreciate the involvement of all staff with the students throughout the day - that the staff know all of the children and their "quirks" to help each student manage not only their academic needs but also to help develop their social/emotional skills/needs”
“I know that the faculty and administration really care about the whole education of my child from his academics to his social and emotional well being.”
“They focus on his strengths...not the weaknesses. He is set up for success and has made peer friends for the first time. I also like the calendar schedule; specifically, the breaks.”
“Students are encouraged to be "themselves". Academics and personal achievement both are taught daily. Staff is excellent and well guided and trained.”
“The teachers and support staff. The feeling of community. The positive impact it has on my son's future.”
“As a parent I feel fully supported within the school, and at home. We can talk openly about strategies that are being used to ensure we are all doing the same to ensure her success. I feel like we are one big family going for the same goal.”
“The instructional program and environment is unique and geared towards a specific population of students. My son is right at home here and the school is equipped to meet his needs and help him to progress in his academic and life goals.”
“Love the staff. Love the facilities, love that my child has access to foreign language and music. I love that my concerns are addressed immediately and I feel that I am listened to.”
“Great and safe learning environment for out child.”
