While this school is fine for children without special needs I would not recommend it for kids with special needs. They do not believe in "labels" and are against IEPs... which means that if your child has a special need... they may not get the services they need (and likely won't get any services without a fight). They particularly lack in ability to identify and recognize disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders (even when a child is already diagnosed). Otherwise it is a small school great for kids with no special needs who do not have difficulty making friends (a little cliquey at times).
