Great school. She has the ESOL program that greatly assists children who are starting to speak English.

Excelente, el programa ESOL es exigente con los alumnos en lectura y escritura.

Increible, como familia nos sentimos muy contentos, los prefesores se han esforzados con la educacion de mis hijos, sobretodo porque llegaron sin conocer el idioma y los han ayudado enormemente, ademas uno ve a sus hijos muy entisiasmados en ir al colegio y eso es una senal de que las cosas van por muy buen camino. Los felicitos a todos

I too attended J.J. Finley as a child, but I probably would never, if I were a 5 year old Autistic child; like my son who was kept out of school for 3 weeks because the principal "felt" he was going to be a distraction. She never gave him a chance to see what he was capable of, never changed and observed him in a classroom setting. So now my son who knows his name, can spell his name, can write is name, know his alphabet and numbers random; had to go back to Pre-K.... I know many are going to have something to say, but to that I say "speak on". But I was always taught to never judge a book by it's cover", and "judge not or let ye be judged"... I love what my lil book is teaching me.... He's quite a story!!!! P.S. -I only gave one star because I had to!!

The best school that I have ever known, my children love it and will never forget their excellent days and experience during the one year that they spent at it.
