  • Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School reviewed by a parent

    Our fourteen year old son is living at the O School and is having a very positive experience. The staff is kind and receptive. My son has shared with us that he would not be doing this well at home, and he realizes how beneficial the therapeutic environment is. It is hard work and it is hard to be away from home, but it is a positive environment, and the staff really cares about the kids. We feel lucky to have found the O School.
