i attended this school all throughout my elementry school days and let me tell you, do not trust this school 's special education teachers. they have zero respect for childrens personal space and their idea of disipline was putting me and other kids into closets and locking the door. taking away my lunch because i " had an attitude" and pulling me out of class ( even though i was not engaging violently ) and restraining in a way any parent with a non autistic kid would go ballistic over . this school is shady and has no respect for autistic people and autistic children. be vary wary if this is your only option. teachers and adults in general love to try and silence autistic people because they " know best" and try to have you ignore their abuse.
