Testimonials about Y.A.L.E. School Social Learning

Karen and Stephen S

Parents

There are not enough words to truly convey the level of gratitude that we have as a family for the services, education and support that our son has received while being at Y.A.L.E. School Mansfield Township campus. Once we arrived, we truly felt that we had all been given a second chance to help our son love school and rebuild his confidence and self-worth.

Y.A.L.E has given him the tools to succeed, and to build on in all aspects of his life. We have changed and grown so much as a family from the consistency, unconditional acceptance and dedication of the team at Y.A.L.E, and we will always be grateful, much more than we could ever say.”

Mary Lou R.

Parent

The staff has been extremely caring and kind, supportive and informative. They always take the time to explain and answer any questions I may have. I have always been informed on a daily basis of how Shane’s day progressed.

Once the mother of a child who didn’t even want to hear the word school, get on the bus, do the tasks that were asked of him, or do his homework, now I am the mother of a successful student at Y.A.L.E. School.”

Lora R.

Parent

“Y.A.L.E. School’s many facets of creative learning offer education with a refreshing perspective that kids fall in love with. I couldn’t be happier with the program offered by Y.A.L.E. Cherry Hill, from administration to teaching staff.”
