SFSE makes me feel comfortable and at ease that my son is getting the very best education possible. First, they have loving caring teachers that take time with my son to where I see him grow confident in learning. My son is in their special needs program and I wholeheartedly recommend this school. I wanted more than a glorified daycare for my son. I want him to learn and fend for himself. He will be a South Florida School of Excellence student until they tell me he is too old.
