  • I have enjoyed my son being a leffingwell for 3 years. I hate to see him leave the staff are fantastic. The kids are great.I felt so comfortable with him being there.He has the best teacher you could ever have Mrs.Coats it is like handing him over to his day time mom.She really care and loves her kids. She never lets them slack off.She expects nothing but the best.I will always recommend this school.The one thing i loved about my son going here was everyone excepting him like a normal person(he has down syndrome) That touched my heart above the rest.
