Review for The Community School, Decatur, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Community School is an outstanding school for children on the autism spectrum. The staff is dedicated, caring, helpful, friendly, and a joy to be around. They work tirelessly to help these wonderful children and young adults learn in a safe and pleasant environment. The staff know and care about the special challenges each child faces. Each child has an individual plan for their learning and instruction. Besides the basic classes, each child may pick a special subject they are interested in to study. They have one on one classes for the children as well as classes to provide interaction with other students. The children have PE every day which I think is very important for all students. Thursdays are devoted to learning and helping the children through physical activities to promote peer interaction and help with motor skills. They have family days to encourage participation with the students, staff and family members. My grandson goes to TCS and I thoroughly enjoy the outings. I have never seen such great family participation and friendliness. Family day usually ends with a lunch that everyone contributes to. The food is delicious and a real treat. The school has several functions to help raise funds to keep tuition costs as low as possible. TCS' 3d Annual Southern Soiree and Auction will be held on February 7, 2014, in Decatur, GA. I encourage all to attend. My family attended last year and had a wonderful time. There is delicious food and drinks to enjoy, dancing to a band, and an opportunity to help the school raise funds by donating and bidding on items. There are so many great items to bid on -- from vacations to sports tickets and home made arts and crafts to name just a few. There are items autographed by favorite professional sports players. There aren't enough words to explain what a great school this is and the wonderful opportunities it provides to help get the students ready for the real world. It is such a comfort to know my grandson has a great school to attend where his needs are met and that he is not just one of many students being overlooked in a large classroom. I highly recommend the school, staff, and Director, Dave Nelson, and commend them for the wonderful job they are doing. By supporting The Community School you can help make a real difference in the lives of these special students and help prepare them for the challenges ahead. Please call the school to find out more about it. I know you too will be impressed.

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

Find a way to get total funding for the school because it does such a great job with children and young adults on the autism spectrum.
