This school is awesome! We should have moved my son here years ago. Small classes great instruction positive behavior support. The teachers are wonderful. For the first time ever there is actually a school staff trained in how to help kids function on a day to day basis. Other schools suspend them to not deal with the issue. The teachers are top notch and love their kids. The kids thrive in such a positive environment.
