ROSE OF SHARON EQUESTRIAN SCHOOL INC
August 13, 2014

ROSES is home.
The horses will always be my daughter's special siblings, and there is no place on earth that offers serenity to all like ROSES.
Joan has done so much for so many, and is a true blessing to all.

Thank you.

HIGHLANDS SCHOOL INC
September 24, 2010

The Highlands School believes that children who learn differently need to be taught differently. This school has helped so many children realize that different IS NOT LESS THAN. Not only are the children helped academically, but they are nutured socially and truly blossom in this environment. The child are taught organization skills and life skills that they use when they transition from The Highlands School to a typical environment.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing my daughter learn and grow in such a safe, nurturing way.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

some of the most kind, caring and educated people I have ever met.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the way all children are taught.

Ways to make it better...

The school was able to reach capacity so that more children would be there and more friends could be available to my daughter.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Educating the public about the programs that are offered, and helping families find the tuition monies so that their children can attend the school.

One thing I'd also say is that...

how lucky we have been to find The Highlands School, and how much I would welcome the opportunity to tell others about it.

ROSE OF SHARON EQUESTRIAN SCHOOL INC
May 15, 2010

Rose of Sharon Equestrian School has been providing many gifts to my daughter for many years. She has learned compassion, patience, endurance, structure in addition to how to care for and ride horses. Joan Twining and her staff/volunteers ensure that each child has an experience that is wonderfully unique and well suited for them. It is a safe, structured environment with a breathtakingly beautiful facility and location. How lucky are we that we have found such a wonderful place!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing how my daughter has blossomed and learned under the tutelage of Joan Twining and her team.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find resources that would allow Joan's vision of growth for the school so that more people would know of and benefit from the programs that ROSES offers.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the way my daughter loves to go to ROSES each week, and seeing how she has grown with the programs offered there.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

So many loving and patient people that go out of their way to be involved with the people who come to ROSES.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do so many amazing things to help so many children and adults learn the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding.

Ways to make it better...

ROSES had the funding needed so that volunteers weren't relied on so heavily, and the program could grow and prosper so that others could reap its benefits.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Not having enough people/funds to implement all of the great ideas and programs that could be taking place there.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Joan Twining is a visionary, and has put her life into making ROSES the gift it is to so many people. How lucky are we to have her in our life, and to have such an extraordinary role model for my daughter.
