Feedback from Families
"Prior to EPA our child could not cope in the mainstream school. He had daily meltdowns from the stress and struggle of trying to learn, in a system that could not provide the supports or resources he needed to succeed.
EPA has been a God-send. You could feel the care and kindness immediately. The small class size, child-centered approach, knowledgeable staff, and belief in the child, enabled our son to like school again. His self esteem has grown considerably, he is happy, he is learning, he has friends, and he feels valued."

"Our son has Asperger's and he has been so happy since he started Grade 2 at Edelweiss Private Academy in September. Public school was a nightmare of suspensions and escalating behavioural issues. He was under so much stress and he was suffering academically and emotionally.
At Edelweiss, he can be a happy 'normal child'. He knows that there are rules to be followed and the staff is extremely adept at helping him to succeed. Knowing that our son is finally in an environment where he can thrive and be accepted has made a world of difference in both his life and our family's life."

"Adam has been at Edelweiss for two years. Before starting at Edelweiss, Adam was several years behind in all academic areas when comparing him to his peers. He is now almost caught up and getting ready to transition to a public school. His comprehension skills have progressed profoundly through Edelweiss’ teaching strategies and thus I’m confident that Adam will have a smooth transition and be able to participate in a typical public school environment."
