I think that the school is great. I will like to know where do the special education children fit in. I have heard that this is a wonderful school for children with special needs. I am having problem placing my son in the right environment that will accommodate his needs. He has emotional and behavioral problems. I will really like for him to be challenge academically and not just modify for his behavioral and emotional problem. I know that day treatment programs just offer this. I looking for more. Help please!  E-mail
