I love the Jean Manfra School! It's like a family environment and the teachers are well trained in autism and other disabilities and really care about their students. I'm so happy I finally found the right place for my child! They do many fun and educational activities with the students too.

The staff at Jean M. Manfra School are the most loving, caring and patient people I have ever met my entire life. I had such a hard time and went through 4 different schools with my son before finally deciding on "the little school out in the middle of nowhere." They treat you like you are family and really catered my son's school day based around his daily needs. If I had to do it all over again I would choose to send him there first.
