The Adirondack School is the only place I would consider having my daughter attend. She was brutalized by bullying in the public school. Even though she is gifted she only recieved acceptable grades because she wasn't appropriately challenged and was immobilized by public school techniques because she learns differently then a typical public school student. At TAS she is supported in the areas she is challenged with so she can freely learn in her own way. She is recieving an individualized education at TAS which public schools don't provide. The TAS is fostering her growth and preparing her to be a contributer to society.
