Tanque Verde High School has been a disappointment as far as the special needs education goes. There is a big gap in communication and is not inclusive. My son is in the CBI classroom which is not ran as such. The administration at the school lacks knowledge of the special needs community, and sadly does not show much interest or care when I have voiced my concerns.
