Clearway changed my child's life. The staff cares about all of the students and their families. They individualize the course work and expectations based on the child's needs, while at the same time making sure all the students are involved and active in the school community setting. My son started Clearway after years of bouncing through multiple schools. His severe reading disability had stopped him from making any real progress in school. The school he attended previous to Clearway (also an out-of-district school ]) said the goal was for my child to be able to read a menu. When he graduated from Clearway he could read books and keep up with subtitles while watching a movie. his disabilities will be a lifelong struggle, but without Clearway he would not have had the scaffolding to learn and be successful. My son and I will be forever grateful to Clearway for giving him a chance to attend and succeed.

Clearway is a very special place. Run by four co directors who each also serve as educational advisors to several students and some of whom also teach and supported by outstanding teachers and staff, Clearway changes lives. The school is equally committed to each students academic and social/emotional growth. Everything is individualized and carried out with clarity, care and compassion. The staff are excellent teachers and outstanding mentors who know so much about each child it is mind boggling. I feel very lucky that my daughter is a student here.
