    I am a parent of a young lady that has had a tramatic brain injury as a result of a car accident in 94. She needed to have a barrier free building she has grown so much because of the teacher comittiment to our kids they are the greatest group of teachers this is her last year she is graduating this year we will really miss them

    Needs accomodations to bring all students up to par. Level of teacher professionalism extremely low.

  • (10 years ago)

    Widener is an all handicapped school and is barrier free as far as the physical invironment is concerned. However it has hardly any academic standards. If your child has a high or even average intelligence Widener would be an extremely poor choice.
