  • My son has been attending this Special Needs school for 13 years. The teacher to student ration is great. I have seen first hand how the teachers interact and help our kids learn, and the first month my child attended the school I saw a great improvement. When we moved from St Joe 8 years ago, we made sure we would be an area that would allow him to continue at the school. I recommend this school if you have a child who has special needs. K. Wood
