I was so relieved to find Tampa Day School. My child has been there for 5 years and blossomed academically, socially and emotionally because they''ve taken the time to get to know his specific needs, and cultivated his development. I just with they went through 12th grade!

Tampa Day School is the first school where I knew my ADHD son was being educated in a safe loving environment. The teachers are skilled and have high expectations. The head of school creates the right atmosphere for kids who have anxiety or who have struggled in other schools. The classrooms are orderly and well run. Good manners are expected and bullying is not allowed.
