I apologise for not submitting a revue. I do however, have a request concerning your school. My son is 7 and has multiple special needs. I am first requesting information on public schools in Pa. We are planning on moving so he can get the education he needs so much. His future depends on it. Our county does not even offer therapy of any kind for his needs. Can you please send me some information about your school and enrollment? Thank you C. Austin168 koval check road, Carmichaels PA 15320corrielane1576@gmail.com
