  • This is such an awesome school. My son has gone there for the last six years. He has made a lot of great strides. They truly care about their students. I would highly recommend this school for anyone with a child with special needs.

  • My daughter has been attending Bright Horizons since Kindergarten, and I know she would never have made the strides that she has if she was not enrolled there. My family is very grateful for this school and its wonderful staff.

  • This school is beyond excellent for students' with special needs. Where else can a child with a disability be able to run for king or queen of their prom, and have good chances of winning? Where else could students with special needs reap the benefits of collaborative teaching with classroom staff and therapists(speech, OT, PT)? Before judging the school, take a tour, see where they may need assistance. If we all work together, our students/children will definitely benefit.

  • This is a wonderful school for my son who has cp. His teacher is kind and very enthusiastic about teaching. The nurses always make sure to call me about any concern or item, medicine, food he may need. Notes about his day and what he did or needs are sent home daily in a notebook. He is well taken care of and always comes home clean and very happy.I can't say enough good things about the staff. They really do "beelieve" that everyone can learn!!!

  • Hi, I am not here to grade this school.But I'd like to contribute in making the difference.I am actually an occupational therapist that requested information for employment in this facility.My review is in response to the last annonymous comments posted with a parent concern.I hold legitimate any concerns of parents for children with exceptional needs for their needs are somewhat different.My immediate advice would be to speak with the administrator of this school and see how among staff members and parents we can all "make a difference".I firmly belive that unity brings power,so why not unite with parents and help make the difference?I think this will also bring a sense of belonging to the place besides personal satisfaction,and effort to provide the best for our children.parent meetings are wonderful resources!!Our kids deserve the best!Best regards...Linda

  • this school is not the best for our children with special needs. it is all a make belief. children are not being well taken care of and there is poor hygiene. disspossable feeding bags are rinsed and re-use. it is a big business not a school well intended to help these students.
