What Parents Say
Administration and staff are very dedicated. Their communities are very clean. They make sure their clients have the tools they need to function at the highest level. Thank you for all you do.
My son went here for 3 years and he got his therapies which all them were so caring and sweet there as well. He has exelled so much here and was always happy going there every morning and happy coming home. He really enjoyed it so much. Leo has progressed from not talking to talking very well once graduating. I was really happy with every teacher that he was assigned to and the staff and office lady are incredibly welcoming and nice! The principal really cares about all of her kids that go there and you can tell how hard she has worked to create a humble and great academic place for children to learn and thrive! I really miss this place and wish they had a k through 12th for kids with disabilities!
The teachers are wonderful and seem to care a great deal for the kids.
This school and its faculty are amazing!
