School Reviews

In 1 year, Wellspring and The Arch Bridge School have transformed my daughter from a severely dysfunctional teen who wasn`t able to go to school, take care of herself and had no interest in day-to-day living to a B+ student who attends regularly, enjoys her classes, has made friends and is taking an active role in her treatment. She`s making plans for college, for a career and believes she has a bright future ahead. IT`S A MIRACLE. The staff have empathy and lots of experience and treat the girls with care and respect. We continue to be grateful for the work of Wellspring & The Arch Bridge School.
