    This is an attempt to collect a debt owed by this school. They use fake Purchase Orders to buy books for their school with no intention of every paying for those books. On 08/21/2012 they purchased over $1 400.00 in books from our company and will not return any calls or emails to us about paying this debt. We are trying to collect this debt before going through the courts. If anyone can get Dr. Dawn White to return her calls and pay her bills would be much appreciated. It is terrible you are teaching children right from wrong and you order books with no intention of ever paying for them.

    Worst school ever. They promise the world and deliver very little. No testing was ever performed and so much focus was put on "the arts" that I wonder if they even have an academic curriculum. Don't even get me started on the gossip and rumors that were spread about my family directly from the owners of this school even after we had left. I wish I would have known this was actually a glorified daycare for disabled children. Don't even take a chance on enrolling your child. They will fall way behind your reputation will be ruined and your personal business (true and not true) will be told to everyone. Don t say you weren t warned.

    We are a 21st Century school with 21st century brain-based advances in learning! We use "Multiple Intelligences" and "Cooperative Learning" approaches to teach our students. We are Nationally Accredited with the National Private Schools Accreditation Alliance. We provide all the core classes for a student to graduate with a standard diploma. In addition we provide Art Music Theater Concert Band and Tae Kwon Do. All of these are included as a part os our full curriculum. I have my Doctorate in Exceptional Student Education Mr. White has a Masters Degree in Exceptional Student Education and each of our five Teaching Assistants received a Teaching Assistant Certificate from Ashworth University. All are current college students as well. We have 25 students this year. That gives our students an approx. 1 3 student teacher ratio. Your child will always have 1-on-1 help when they need it! Most importantly we teach your child as a whole gifted person---not just a kid able to pass the FCAT. With excellent instruction cutting-edge teaching methods individual testing with a Doctor of ESE the arts martial arts social skills training and more YOUR CHILD WILL BE A SUCCESS!

    Skip this school I wish I would have. Will be with drawing my child from this school tomorrow. Had a parent meeting with them the week before Thanksgiving and asked why they only taught math twice the whole year they got a bit upset and told me if I didnt like it go elsewhere. They are taking state funds but dont teach! A school day there is Tae Kwon do lunch meditation & Band unless they are working on a play. At that time 90% of the day is the play. The owner of the school spreads rumors and tells each of students private business to other students.
