The Alexander School is a perfect fit for my son. He has excelled in all subjects and in his confidence. The teachers at the school are amazing and truly differentiate instruction for the students. I highly recommend The Alexander School.

My son just graduated from the Alexander School this past May and will be attending a small liberal arts college on scholarship. Without the Alexander School, my son, William, probably would not have graduated from High School, as he needed the guidance and support which was provided by the school. I would highly recommend the Alexander School for any student where traditional teaching does not help that child succeed.

Awesome school! My son had a difficult time with organization and the school schedule and stucture works great with my son's needs. I really like it that he is not bogged down with tons of homework. It is nice to not have to worry about him getting homework done and he can spend more time with family and friends. The lack of homework doesn't mean that he is getting a lesser education, the school is just reasonable about work load. Who wants to work an 8 hour day and come home and put in another 3 hours of work. The staff is also great at allowing the student to shine with their own talents. My son is a really creative person and they let him use his creativity to enhance his school experience. The staff is always available and responsive to any questions or concerns that I might have. The facilities are not really fancy but sometimes it is not what the walls look like but what happens inside of them. I would recommend this school to anyone.
