    All 3 of my grandchildren attend this school and I am amazed at how well they are learning. The eldest excels at math one at art and the other enjoys learning to read. They have a great music and theater program and foster an environment of excellence! I hope the Parkville Middle School continues this trend.

    My nephew has been a student at White Oak for about years now. It is amazing the transformation that he has made both in learning and in his behavioral/Social skills. This school has been the best thing that could have happened to him

    My son has Aspergers Syndrome (high functioning autism) and this school has done a great job addressing his social and behavioral needs while still providing him with specialized education. The previous standard baltimore county school my son attended didn't provide him any support or services and I am very thankful for the amazing work that the administration and staff at white oak do! There should be more schools like this one.

    I couldn't have asked for a better school for my special needs 3 year old. Highly structured yet nuturing environment. Friendly knowledgeable and understanding staff. My son has come a long way in a very short period of time due to their hard work and dedication to him.

    My grandchildren have attended White Oak for a few years. The staff are very caring. I feel my grandchildren are receiving an A-1 education while addressing their behavior issues. I have watched them grow here at White Oak they are not where I want them to be but they are not at the level where we started.

    White Oak has helped my child so much in just the past school year. My only wish Is I would have been able to get him in White Oak sooner. The teachers are great and very caring.
