School Reviews

The miracles I have personally seen at this school are amazing. Students are advancing 3-4 grade levels in one academic year. Social skills in children with autism are developing and for the first time they are having friends over to their homes for sleep overs, going out bowling, enjoying each other''s company and friendship. Jesus Christ''s power to heal, transform, and restore is at work here.
