If you have a child with special needs do not send your child to this school. My child was basically kicked out because they said they never had a student with Board Spectrum Autism, ADHD, Tourette's Syndrome, and anxiety with depression. Not only was he picked on every day for his conditions, we observed that they had no tolerance or the ability to handle a student like this, nor did they want to as he was targeted for removal and to be sent to the alternative middle school because of behavioral problems. My son did not conform to their standards, he is highly intelligent reading at 12-grade levels in 7th grade. What would happen if you sent this type of child to an alternative middle school with children that truly have behavioral issues, he would be picked on even more? This school was absolutely toxic to our special needs child, and I hope you heed our warning!! !Concerned Parent for the future of all special needs children!!!
