School Reviews

Just the mention of school, for the last 3 years, can get my heart racing and anxiety through the roof because of my son's struggles with our neighborhood schools. He was so beat down emotionally for always being the bad kid and carrying the weight of failure around with him. The teachers and staff at Sobesky have given my son hope and confidence in himself again. He feels like a good kid and he enjoys going to school because of the adults he gets to interact with every day. I can finally relax during the school day because I know he is engaged and in good hands rather than sitting isolated in a hallway or office the whole day like in the past. Very Grateful for Sobesky.
