School Reviews

5  
We placed a deposit over 8 months prior to the start of the school year. They were unable to accommodate our son due to him having a speech delay and would not allow our speech specialist in the school. They claimed they did not have the room to allow the specialist to work with him. They very easily took our money, however, refused to refund us the $1,700 deposit. They were unwilling to accommodate his special needs and offered no solution.
