My grandson, Eric, started at Springhouse Community School this fall. I have been very delighted at his progress so far. A little background on Eric: He has hated school for several years. At the end of last semester at a public school, he hated school and "humans because they can be so cruel.” Springhouse Community School “popped up” on my social media one day. How it got there, who knows, but I thought I would do some research. I liked what I read. We applied, interviewed, and were accepted into the school. The second week of school was their first “Experience Week.” Eric was excited and nervous, as he had never been on a trip away from home except with family. On one of the planned adventures, he decided he did not want to go. Eventually, he decided he would go, with hesitation. He enjoyed the adventure. He came back with a smile on his face - a smile I have not seen in a very long time. He comes home with a smile on his face most days now. Some days are challenging for him but he is making progress. The acceptance and love from the staff and fellow students has been more than I could ever hope for and is wonderful.
