    My son just starting attending this school in September and from the time he started I notice a positive change in him for example he had trouble staying focus in class but now he is raising his hand to answer questions and more alert.

    This is a great school for students with disabilities. My son has been there for about three years now. The teachers are caring and understanding. The principal is very involved with the students and teachers. The President of the PTA is also involved with the school. At the end of their high school year they teach the students what the outside world will be waiting for them. They take them out to the neighborhoods to explore their surroundings and other great things they do there. My son had a job working in the school cafeteria he enjoyed it so much he wants to work in the cafeteria again this year. He has learned to be independent and he was in the student council.
