After spending too many years, dollars and tears on trying to make the public school work for my son, we feel so fortunate to have found the wealth of resources available to him as a student at Sand Hill School. The teachers, specialists, administrators and staff are all individually committed to the growth of each child. My son has grown academically, but also in executive functioning, social skills, emotional development and in addressing his specific learning differences. There are no words that can fully detail the depth and magnitude of what CHC and Sand Hill School do. Yet, when I see my son feeling confident, at ease in school, trusting the good intentions of his teachers, willing to try, and most of all happy, I can only say that I wish we had sought the support of CHC & Sand Hill sooner!
