My son's experience at Southern Pines Primary has exceeded all my expectations. He came here after being accepted into the PreK program under the entry assistance of his IEP. His IEP team has been very successful in molding his behaviors. Prior to Miss Whitney Marion, Ms Taylor, and Ms Clark's classroom he was having significant behavioral issues at his previous Daycare/PreK class. They've worked wonders with his attitude, and it shows at home. His OT and Speech therapist's also have been very good to us.
