Sonrisa School has made huge difference to our family. My son has learning disabilities, receptive and expressive language delays. The teachers at Sonrisa School are highly trained and utilize several techniques to meet my son's needs. The entire atmosphere of the school is warm and loving. The other students include my son in social activities and make sure they all sit together during recess and lunch. My son loves is school, the teachers and his new friends. My entire family is grateful for the joy Sonrisa has brought to my little guy!Mom of 3

Sonrisa School is the best thing to happen to my daughter. Before enrolling in Sonrisa School, my daughter was a scared little girl who cried every morning while getting into the car to drive to school. In the evening homework time was a battle.Now my daughter wakes up on her own and loves attending school. The teachers at Sonrisa are well qualified and nurturing. They encourage students to be themselves and bring out the best in each child. We are blessed to have found such a fabulous school for our daughter.Mary

Sonrisa School has been a miracle for our family. OUR daughter hated attending school. Every morning was a battle to get her into the car. Homework was yet another struggle every evening. She has been attending Sonrisa School for the past 2 years and we finally feel like we have my daughter back.Not only does she now attend school willingly, but she skips into the car and cannot wait until we get there. The teachers at Sonrisa are simply amazing! They are well trained to work with children who learn differently but most importantly they are nurturing and treat each student as an individual. Along with laughter and joy, there is a deep respect between teachers and students. We feel blessed to have found this fabulous school for our little girl.A Blissful Parent,

Sonrisa is truly a second home for my daughter who has Down Syndrome. The teachers are highly qualified and well versed in several educational techniques. They understand children with disabilities and modify their approach to meet each child's requirements. My daughter looks forward to attending school everyday.
