Dear The Child School,
As I reflect upon my son's recent graduation fromTCS, the magnitude of the advancements and achievements that Brendan attained are, in a word, overwhelming. Whether I reflect upon Brendan's academic progress or his advancing social skills, I am left with the notion of how blessed we were to have benefitted from the nurturing and cutting edge academic and co curricular programs that were offered to Brendan. The school raised Brendan's self esteem and social skills to a level that we could never have anticipated. From a child who once developed an aphasia to a young man who was happy to deliver speeches, Brendan's progress through the guidance and supervision of an unparalleled qualified and devoted staff was incredible. Our entire family will be forever indebted to the school. Apart from what we hope will be lifelong friendships that Brendan has formed, I look forward to maintaining contact with so many staff members and parents whose friendship I will always treasure. The Child School has truly become the jewel that we hoped it could become.

Dear Child School/Legacy High School,
From the moment our family went to visit the Child School for the first time we knew it was something special. The school. or more exactly the staff & teachers, were just what we were looking for. For the first time in many years, and many schools, we felt we had met people who truly understood our child and the special challenges he faced. The school took the time to get to know not only our child but also the family so they would have the big picture. The staff and teachers worked with us tirelessly for many (often difficult) years to help our Son move ahead educationally, emotionally, socially, and personally. It was not always easy but never did anyone stop trying and working on that all important goal..providing a safe, happy, positive, and educational environment. At the end of this path we are proud and happy to note that our Son has successfully graduated High School with an Advandced Regents Diploma and was accepted at a number of excellent Universities where we expect he will do very well. We are certain we will stay closely connected to the Child School for many years to come and that the people we met and came to appreciate will be part of our lives going forward.
