We have been very impressed with the quality of our son's education at Richer School. His Kindergarten teacher did everything she could to help him make social adjustments. His first grade teacher has created a tailored curriculum for each student in her class - she has several levels of lessons for math, spelling, etc. Our son is continually challenged in new ways and has flourished socially and academically.
