After being moved by the school district for the third time in three years to a special day class, we were done. I knew the current school situation was only adding to her anxiety and depression though she was only in second grade! I began searching online for hours on end and, after visiting a couple schools, we found Stanbridge and have never looked back!
School life for her now is safe and comfortable. Just knowing that when she leaves for school she will be cared for, cared about, listened to and have relationships with friends is all we ever hoped for. Stanbridge has exceeded our expectations in all of these areas. Mia will continue to struggle and be behind her peers academically, but socially she has blossomed into a super social, empathetic girl. It's sounds cliché, but the kids and staff “get her,” and she is thriving with them.
