  • I was very surprised to find ,just how well organized this school is. As a parent of a student with special needs, i was prepared for a fight. Again , i had been blessed with a knowledgeable team, and the amount of parent input i gave was well recieved and taken into consideration. I was made to feel like a part of the team, not an outcast parent!
    The school psychiatrist,... i feel,.. a brilliant man. He had a wonderful take on my son, and that was the biggest part of my sons intervention plan. A knowledgeable,.................. kind man,... Dr. Brogno. I'm so gratefuul to have him and the whole team helping me, help my son.
    I hear horror stories about other schools, yet i was blessed.
    I have only wonderful things to say about the school and the personel!
    And Mrs. Betz is the most wonderful woman and teacher ever.
    When your child is dependent on making progress in any area, never mind the special needs, it takes a special person. Mrs. Betz is that person!!!!!!
    We LOVE her!
