    My son Stanley Johnson currently attends Burr Oak. I think it is a wonderful school Stanley has some learning difficulties and the teachers at Burr Oak put him through a very thorough screening. I thought that was very beneficial to me and him to find out if he had any pshyological physical or mental disbilities. Stanley is currently seeing a speech therapist and he is talking better each day. His teacher Mrs. Hartley follows up with me in letters and also emails she a wonderful teacher as well. Thank You Burr Oak for being a wonderful school with excellent teachers and staff!
