Spectrum Academy is the best thing that ever happened to my family. Having my children attend school here means that someone is always advocating for them. The entire staff, teachers and paras show nothing but pure love and consent dedication to the students. My only hope is that every child out there gets to experience a wonderful educational path to bring them success and fulfillment, because that is exactly what my children are getting here at Spectrum.
Gabe has been with Spectrum since 1st grade, he is in 6th now. Gabe has had his struggles but he is doing amazing and he has worked really hard, but he would not be functioning as well as he is without Spectrum. I have always loved how accepting and loving they are towards my son. I always hear how much they love Gabe. I always feel that he is being well taken care of. I love the autism mentality of acceptance that exists at Spectrum.

We have had such a great experience at Spectrum. Ms. Liz is a phenomenal principal and always greets my kids with a smile, when she see' s them in the hall. The teachers for my kids have been excellent and have really helped them grow. I also have made such great friends with the parents from the school!
We have had a great educational experience for our son at Spectrum. While attending, he has had the individual attention needed in areas of academics, social skills, speech, and other.. The teachers he has had have gotten to know what does and does not work for him and have made his environment such that he can be his best self. We are grateful for the staff and faculty that have loved and cared for him. They have made a huge difference in all of our lives!
Our children have attended PG's Spectrum Academy since it opened in 2014. The teachers and administrators at Spectrum have gone above and beyond to create a school that meets the needs of the children who attend. We are especially grateful for the kindness and compassion shown towards the children. We are so thankful we have the opportunity to be a part of this school!
My son has gone from a child who couldn’t make it through the day of school without a meltdown and had what felt like insurmountable issues academically. We found that the teachers, staff, and administration at Spectrum not only had the tools and resources to help him succeed; but, they have the passion to see him grow. We now have a child who feels successful and worthwhile. It’s comforting that he now has a network of friends and adults who understand him and are watching out for him.
Spectrum Academy allows me to have unlimited creative freedom when providing speech therapy! I am able to work with a multidisciplinary team to provide the best possible outcomes for our students, and this makes my job so much fun! - Allison Schuette, M.S., CCC-SLP
My son has become a social butterfly since attending spectrum. This is oir second year and I jave zero complaints! His one on one attention has been phenomenal. He is now at a regular 1st grade level thanks to Spectrum! We love the teachers, para's and admin. This has been a huge blessing in our son's life. He will finish HS here and he's 7.
My high-functioning autistic son was struggling in a mainstream classroom. He had an excellent teacher and good friends, which helped him through kindergarten at our local school, but by first grade he kept getting too overwhelmed and hyper to do his work. Halfway through his first grade year Spectrum offered us a spot. I felt reluctant, knowing it was a big change, but we took it--and I'm so, so glad we did.
A little over a year later, and my son is thriving. He's made new friends, he loves school, and he's learned a lot of self control and positive thinking. He's got great handwriting (thanks, OT!), he loves math, and every day after school he's bubbling with things he learned about dinosaurs or the moon or mountains. Spectrum is a great fit for us, with lots of individual attention and understanding for each child. Sending my son to Spectrum is one of the best decisions I've ever made!
Spectrum academy has proven to be such a blessing to our son. From the classroom teachers and Paras, to the administration and related services, the care and love for our son is obvious. Despite his many challenges they have been nothing but helpful and supportive, and he is blossoming!
Spectrum Academy is a great place to work and is filled with teachers who care about the students and go above and beyond to help them succeed. I would recommend Spectrum Academy to anyone to wants their child to succeed in a supportive and safe learning environment. The teachers here at Spectrum work hard to make sure that every child's social needs and accommodations are met. The students are challenged but also given the supports they need.
I have been in education setting for 40 years and I have never worked at a school that strives provides the services for students with IEP's like Spectrum does. All the teacher seek out help for struggling students and will provide multiple accomodations to insure their success.
Mason got lost in the system. As his mother I had to be able to say I did everything I could for my child, that I fought with all my strength for my child to have the same things as a “normal” student, a chance. I had to believe that somewhere there was a place that Mason would be able to succeed and be able to reach his potential and better himself through social skills, education, and accomplishments. Because of Spectrum Academy I know everyone will see how uniquely wonderful my son is. With the love and care of a thousand lights, they found Mason took him by the hand and filled him with happiness, hope and the ambition of dreams.
