I absolutely LOVE this school! Everyone at the school has been super helpful, encouraging and on top of their game. My son being somewhat of a "problem child" transferred to this school with one of those "thick" files this year. He was there only 2 weeks when I received my dreaded 1st phone call from the school. It was the Special Education teacher, I thought Oh no what now...However, to my surprise she was actually calling to let me know that the previous school's IEP did not match up with my son, in fact she felt he was a total different child than she has expected to show up after reading his file. I was thrilled! The Principle, Herself and his Teacher all praised him for his good qualities. It is now December and I have not had one call from the school about bad behavior and needing to come in to discuss and develop a "Plan"! He no longer tries to get out of going to school and he comes home happy not angry. He even wrote a story the other night, the first time EVER! So with all this I have to say this school and it's Teachers, Principle and staff have performed a miracle for my son and I. I would recommend this school to anyone!
