I absolutely love this school. My two sons have been attending AMU Prep since the last year and what a difference in their behavior and their learning. Such a caring team of educators. I would highly recommend this school to everyone who has a child with special needs.

I have children who attend this school. It's AMAZING! ...I came from ny and had a son that was in my schools that won fancy awards for no bullying.. I hired education layers and so much more because the school system was failling my son. I moved to fl and did a small private school which they did not believe in dissabiltys, I took my son out and did public school for a year. He had a lot of issues the school didn't get. He has high functioning ADHD, fidgets, forgets and maturity level for socializing is low.. They didn't meet his needs. He went to ace Maria and is doing incredible, they teach different, he finally gets math! And it sticks! They build social skills. There is no bullying because they respect and care.I had another son with Apraxia and he did horrible in public, he is doing so great in age Maria ! ... This school is so different from any other. Their teachers are on the same page as the school and are incredible! You want an amazing school that will change the life's of your kids for the better this is it.. This school has heart!
