Our son had attended public schools through elementary with a para-pro to assist him with staying on task. This worked fine for the first few years, but by the time he was in 5th grade, he started to struggle with the fact that he was different and had to have a para-pro. His 5th-grade year was filled with anxiety, which we did not know the extent of until he started at Aim High School. Since he started 6th grade during the pandemic and virtually, it was a disaster. So, we started to look for other options. After our son visited Aim for the half day of classes, he came home and asked us when he could start going to Aim. He has been thriving ever since! It was such a shock to us, because he never expressed an interest in going to school. Since he has been at Aim, he has never complained about going to school and he doesn't have anxiety about going to school. The teachers at Aim High School are AMAZING! They work with the students to help them overcome their weaknesses, they make learning fun, and they help them learn at a pace that works for the students. They also have really cool electives! We can't say enough about Aim and the difference the teachers are making in our son!

Aim High focuses on fostering positive relationships between students, parents, and staff to create a fun and productive learning environment. Aim High meets students where they are academically, personally, and socially and helps them grow and develop towards their full potential. The small class sizes create a distraction-reduced environment where students and staff can get to know each other on a personal level. It also makes it possible to individualize instruction and provide the support to set students up for success. Life skills are built into the curriculum and provide students with the tools they need as they move on from high school.

My daughter struggled for years in public school. She has been going to Aim high for the past 4 years and has flourished there. The teachers and principal are amazing. I don`t know where we would be without Aim High!
