My son has Asperger's and after attending several schools that didn't work for him, he attended Pinnacle Academy for five years from eighth onward. He found, what he describes as "a home" at Pinnacle. Pinnacle Academy has a nurturing environment and a unique ability to truly teach each student`s individual learning styles within a classroom. There is such a positive vibe on campus, you know everyone that works there loves what they do, but also has a deep commitment to every student and family that attends Pinnacle. My son flourished at Pinnacle and is currently a college freshman living on campus.
