School Reviews

  • Recommended September 13, 2013 - The Banyan School has changed my son''s life. They teach in a way he understands and a pace he can keep up with and he is with kids just like him. Before Banyan, he stopped learning, had anxiety everyday before school and no friends. I highly recommend Banyan. - Posted by Parent
