September School Reviews

By , a Parent on

My daughter has been at September School for two years. Prior to that she was struggling in the public school system: skipping classes, getting failing grades, and basically dreading going to school every day. She felt invisible to her teachers, and her poor grades (in some cases failing) were causing her to seriously consider dropping out of school altogether. It was agonizing to watch her going through that experience and we felt helpless.

That all changed on the first day we walked into September School. It was small, and homey, and the staff we met with seemed genuinely interested in listening to us. Our daughter immediately felt like this could be a place where she would feel good about going to.  We walked out of there feeling truly hopeful for the first time in years about her education.

Now, two years later, we can say this: not all of my daughter's problems with going to school were completely solved (she still struggles with motivation), but many of the big issues were. She really likes the staff, she feels she can be herself there, she attends classes and field trips, she feels like she can speak out, and most importantly, we have no doubt that she will be graduating next semester.

The staff at September School has gone to amazing lengths to help my daughter work through issues that come up for a teenager.  Academically, they have opened up new worlds for her to consider, and I'm not surprised that they have such a high graduation and continuing education rate. I recommend this school to everyone I know who has a teenager struggling in the public school system. Cost-wise, compared to other private schools (and I researched a bunch of them), it's really reasonable. Even though it was a stretch to pay the tuition, it has been investment that I will always be grateful to have made.
