Oak Hill has been a gift for our family. My son has all of his academic as well as social needs met and often exceeded. We could not be happier. High recommendation.

Oak Hill has been a godsend for my son. I have seen so much growth in the three years he has been at the school. Teachers are more than qualified to work with children with learning differences. They are loving guides who bring out the best in each student.
