Wonderful experience

My child has been at MSA for 4 years and we love the school. It is a very intimate, loving environment, wonderful staff, and very individualized approach, meeting every child where they are and using whatever methodologies that would benefit that child, instead of being doctrinaire. Also very supportive of AAC and other communication modalities.

Do not waste your time ir your kid’s time. Steer away from this school. Especially the newly opened upper school. Director is bad. Have only one tea her. Very bad. Cares the least about her students. She was looking to be a tutor at the same time she was hired. Care only about being paid. Therapists are bad especial behavior analyst who is supposed to have a lot of experience. Ery bad guy. Stay away
