School Reviews

I wholeheartedly endorse this school. After a previous year of school refusal and crisis, my daughter has regained her sense of self, safety, and groundedness while at Holmstead. Her grades have improved and she`s now back on the high honor roll. She willingly gets up on her own every day to go to school. She loves the Holmstead tribe! And they don`t baby these kids...but give them the appropriate academic and therapuetic supports. They work with you to get the individualized plan your kid needs to succeed. A+!!!
