We had a special needs student, we got very little help and the help that was given was not what was best for the child. This child accused my husband of child abuse and the school turned him in and after that all help we recieved became hostile. We are now in a new area and this same child is thriving. I would never recommend this school to anyone and am very glad we moved.
