Ability School provides a great environment for learning, social growth, and independence. My child's progress over the years has been amazing and I am more than happy with the school and teachers!

I can not recommend enough the wonderful program offered at Ability School. I am not aware of any other program where a child walks away with as much confidence in their ability to learn and study any subject. My daughter started at 3 1/2 and was reading by 4. She loves school! I would recommend Ability School to any parent who want a more personalized education for their child.
