    Center School has changed my son's life! He is learning growing and thriving socially emotionally and academically. I can't express how wonderful and caring all the teachers and staff are in the school and how hard they work to make all the kids a success.

    My son came to the Center School as he was not learning to read and write (despite a high IQ) at his private school. He can now write well and reads at grade level and loves it. His self esteem has also improved so much. The Center School teaches students at their level not their grade. So my son gets help where he needs it (reading and writing) and challenged where he needs it (math).

    Working at Center School is most rewarding! It is a joy to watch the students increase their reading levels and learn how to use the strategies they need in this supportive environment. So many of our students are able to transition to high school successfully. The teachers are dedicated and innovative and committed to helping each student learn the best way for each student to learn.

    My son was officially diagnosed with an Auditory Processing Disorder in 1st grade. After much struggle (45 minutes for one sheet of writing homework?) tears and frustration at our local public school a good friend introduced us to Center School in Abington PA. The small group individualized instruction with incredibly smart talented caring teachers and leadership is just what my son needed! His self-confidence and desire to learn soared...priceless! My son is now a thriving freshman in college and still to this day credits Center School with setting him on the right path and knowing how to advocate for himself. Thank you Center School - I can only imagine where we'd be without you!

    When our very bright son was diagnosed with ADD after years of struggling in school we found Center School in Abington PA and enrolled him beginning in 6th grade. (Oh how I wish I had known about this school earlier!) With excellent teachers who know how to teach to kids with dyslexia dysgraphia auditory processing issues and other learning differences and disabilities our son is in the most capable hands possible. He's thriving in a nurturing environment and where they "demystify" and normalize everything our kids are living with opening up what could have been a hostile world for them. The academics are second to none yet the teachers have creative ways of getting the message through to those with executive function issues and everything else mentioned above. The school is a godsend.
