    Learning Spring is a better-than-average school. For some students this may be home but for others it may be a cause for frustration. I would consider it to be a great school because the majority of the students and teachers are very nice. One of the downs of this school when I went here years ago was the academics. Sometimes I was told to talk to my friends instead of doing my academic work. Plus I was given easy school work out of a random selection. I could see that what I said in the last couple of sentences doesn't happen to the new Learning Spring. I believe that LSS is a great school and seemingly better than the years when I went there. I visit very often and see a nice improvement every visit in the teacher's social/emotional understanding of the student's needs as well as the student's happiness. Ignore my "downs" comment because that only happened 10% of the time when I went to LSS. Also LSS's curriculum is core curriculum and will stay that way. Consider it as a choice for your autistic kid and you will see improvements.

    This school is a great school. I went to the school for eight years and was the best student in the school. I made so many memories and the school will never be the same without me

    Unfortunately we had a very bad experience with this school. The staff is much less experience than you would expect for the kind of kids they enrolled. No matter what the Principal always is in the staff side even you will hear unbelievable excuse from her so don't even bother to explain what your child says. Our child did not want to go to this school. Don't expect much academically ...we had an awful experience here therefore I can't recommend this school...

    I'm a former student and when I was learning math at this school it was very hard. Now I know how to do math at the school that I go to now it's still a little hard for me

    Most of the kids in this school have very little verbal ability. Your child will not learn very much here especially in math in fact when I graduated from here and went to middle school I had to catch up a lot in all my school subjects and had to be left back 1 grade to catch up. When I went there some of my friends and I used to joke about how bad it was and used to refer to it as a daycare for school age kids. In fact the only two good things about their new location is that it's a beautiful building that is near a playground. Source I am a former student of this school.

    If your child has autism and has some verbal ability Learning Spring is a Godsend. The focus is on creating a positive environment for your child to learn and with any luck forge some lifetime friendships. At some point you realize that the most important thing for your child is to learn how to be independent and interact with human beings not just objects. Learning Spring understands that.

    Learning Spring is one of the best schools out there for children with special needs and/or Autism. It is the Harvard of Special Ed Schools!

    LSS is a nurturing place for students. There is a big emphasis on social skills awareness and the academic curriculum has been growing and developing each year that my child has attended. The school is about to expand into a middle school next year as well and will be moving into a great new facility. Teachers therapists and the director work closely with the kids and are very committed to doing whatever they can to help the kids be successful.
