School Reviews

We moved to Alpena with no expectation of having quality special education for my son. Afterall, we were moving from the "big city" to, what I considered to be, the middle of nowhere. I cannot sing the praises of Pied Piper enough! What a fantastic, absolutely fantastic school for our kiddos iwth special needs. An absolute gem..unfortunatly, we had to move away, and I STILL wish we could return. My son arrived in Sue Srebnik's classroom unable to walk, unable to eat on his own and unable (I thought) to be potty trained. Within a YEAR, Sue and the staff had my son walking with a walker, totally potty trained and..eating with a fork and spoon! Your kids have potential that cannot be reached in a "regular ed" setting and Pied Piper and the staff will unlock it. I love that as the kids get older, they help them with living skills, since, afterall, our kids need to be independent at some point. The school has their own prom, great field trips etc. We miss this school and just cannot say enough about it...
