    I think Hartford is a phenomenal school. I have found the administrators teachers child study team and guidance to be very accomodating and understanding. Each child is cared for and all involved seem to really try to make an effort to what is best for that individual child.

    Overall I thought Hartford was a good school. Of course there is room for improvement but what school is perfect? They took a sincere interest in the students and tried to keep them on the right track. Mr. Cohen is wonderful and Mr. White seems to be very involved although I never had direct contact with him.

    Needs very much improvement for inclusion and special education. Not enough space provided for classrooms living skills and therapy. Special educators are not experienced and are not provided adequate support. School staff has not been educated and prepared for disabilities. Parent participation is not welcomed or considered. Adaptations are not provided for the mainstreaming of students and after school activities. I strongly do not recommend Hartford for special needs children!
