School Reviews

Any parent who loses sleep because their child isn''t fitting in public school needs to consider Furtah Prep, especially if their child has ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, high-functioning Autism, Dyslexia or some other learning difference. Furtah recognizes that these students have a learning difference not a learning disability. If a student is acting out at home or socially, becomes withdrawn, fights too frequently with siblings, has poor self-esteem or low feelings of self-worth, they could have a reading difficulty that can be corrected at Furtah Prep. You should check out this school.
