    My son started this school at the age of 3 shortly after we found was mildly autistic. He started in the speical Ed class room (ASD classroom) This school and this program has been the best thing for our family and has done wonders for my son. When he entered school he was barely verbal. Now he is talking nonstop and participates in conversation. He has learned social skills and is able to make friends. Everyday he tells me what he did in school and how much fun he had. He is now now getting ready for kindergartin and is expected to be transitioned into mainstream class by 1st grade. His teacher is wonderful and it has been the best experience working with her and watching my son learn and grow.

    All students are respected and expected to reach the goals set for them. It's a great place to learn and teach.

    This school is great pre-k through 2nd grade and then it spirals down hill there are far too many inconsistant rules class projects and other important matters. I am happy that my daughter is out of this school at the end of this school year!
