Hi my name is Tamika Williams! I am the mother of a 9yr. Old boy who is in the 4th grade he was diagnosed two years a go with ADHD. I have since put him in two different schools where he seem to be still struggling. I was told a bout your place and trying to seek some help for my nine-year-old son.

I went to Leary School from 1973 through 1975, ages 12-14. It was a wonderful experience for a very insecure kid at that time. My favorite teacher was Al Berg, I wish I knew where he was now. My favorite part of the school was the positive interaction with the teachers and how they really cared! Although we learned a great deal in the classroom setting I feel i grew the most when we were playing football with the staff during breaks!

I went to Leary School from April 1968-July 1973 and my favorite teachers were Al Berg, Janet Foreman, and Joan Loftus. I would like to know where they are today, if they are still alive. My name is Charles Wood and my cell phone number is 630-308-0667. The best time to reach me during the day is 9:00a.m-1:00p.m

i was a student at the office bldg school sorry i can't remember the road but it was across from a high school.i went there from 1973 to 1976.For most of my time there my go to teacher was Carla Bouker, she was a friend who helped me cross some pretty tuff teenage bridges.When i left to go back to public school i dropped out after the first week, but because of the education i recivied there i was able to pass the MD ged with 99% first try. i would love to hear from anyone in that time my name is Bob Davidson tho i had a nick name (bunky) most called me that.I had a 100 mile round trip every day that i hated but i am happy from my time there.I had many friends I will never forget, but i never heard from then again after 1976.it was a great school taught me i could be something or anything I wanted. call if you want, you will get my voice mail i will call you back 302-296-6969

my ten years from 1982 to 1992 working at Leary School enhanced my life while it enhanced the students entrusted to our care. Now in the twilight of my life at 65 years of age I am more than sure that all children will benefit from the Leary School learning experiences. Mr. Fields, former Crisis Counselor
