Do not put your child in this school or any unit 40 School. My son was here and was systematically it mentally abused by both systems. They only care about the funding they get for your child having an IP and not about your child at all whatsoever. Google the reviews on the school and the stories that come out of this Effingham unit 40 school and you will see for yourself.
