  • Awesome, Awesome, Awesome school! Everyone has knowledge on special education. The Principal Mrs Young-Weekly is an exceptional woman. Teacher Katherine played a huge part in our son advancing like he did. Her aides Barbara and Annette were wonderful and loving. The Security guy, Rev is so nice. Everything about the school is Awesome.
