This school was the best ever. My daughter had previously been at one of those smaller schools, meant to help those kids who are bullied, different, or in some way just didn't fit in.

AT SIL, she loved learning.

Some people like this school. However, it doesn't require its teachers to be properly certificated, so their not good at understanding the learning needs of all students.

What a flexible and fun school! I'm impressed with the communication and the atmosphere. My son feels safe and happy. It is so good to have him happy again. He actually likes going to school. He likes his teachers and they present the info in a way he can relate to.

My student found academic success at SIL. His teachers were awesome and he said he learned so much more in a week than he did in a year.
