The Crisman School has been such a blessing for us. We will surely miss it once my son graduates.

I am the parent of an academically-gifted child who struggled in various public schools but has flourished since transferring to The Crisman School. While his IQ and aptitude scores were off the charts, he struggled in the conventional school setting. The academic troubles soon became behavior issues, and he started bringing those home with him. Immediately upon attending Crisman, I noticed a change for the better. My son's attitude changed, he became more engaged in what he was learning and his outlook improved significantly. Crisman has shown tremendous love and support to my son, and it shows. I give this school my highest recommendation.

Crisman is a wonderful place! The staff and teachers all work as a team to provide the best education possible for our twice exceptional students. Our students are very bright and successful when taught the way they need to learn. Because we are small, we are able to give our students individualized attention. We welcome you to visit our wonderful school!

I can't say enough positive about Crisman. My daughter has been attending for the past 4 years. The staff are caring, knowledgeable and loving. The environment is full of positive vibes and they work hard with the kids to emphasize their strengths but also work on weaknesses. Very please parent!

I've personally witnessed the loving teachers and these special children that just bloom in this environment. The success of the alumni speaks for itself. This is a loving learning environment any kid would be blessed to attend.
