I am so pleased with this school! I have a daughter who was born with special needs and we recently moved to NC a year ago, and my daughter started attending Conover School. Julie White (principal) and her staff have done more with my child in 1 year, then any mainstream public school has done in the 3 years of learning she has done thus far. The staff are the most loving and kind individuals. that I have had the privledge to meet and know! If you have a special needs child under 21, then I highly recommend moving to Catawba County and having your child attend this school!
