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

Tracy M.

Parent

“He was welcomed by Y.A.L.E. staff and all of the students and within the first week I saw such a positive change in him that it brought me to tears.

The field trips, which are part of teaching the children social skills, have been so helpful and his behaviors in public settings have improved greatly.

The staff at Y.A.L.E. is an unbelievable group of very special people who truly care about children and teaching. I have so much respect for what all of you give to this program and I am very grateful for Anthony’s overall progress.”

Bridget D.

Parent

“This is our son’s freshmen year and he attends Y.A.L.E. at the Cedar Creek HS campus. We have been very happy so far with the strides that he is making. Our son has mastered some skills that not so long ago were too difficult for him. He’s loving school and the new friends he is meeting!”

Mike R.

Martial Arts Instructor

“I have had the pleasure of teaching martial arts to students from the Medford and Mansfield Campus since 2004. The teachers and staff are helpful and truly care about the students. We have created a martial arts curriculum that focuses on building character skills like respect, leadership, confidence and teamwork. This is a great opportunity for the students to learn outside of the classroom in a fun and safe learning environment. 

Over the years I have seen what Y.A.L.E. School does for these students first hand. They really get to know each student and prepare them for life. It’s great to see the kids grow and mature through the program.

If you are looking for a place for your child I highly recommend Y.A.L.E. School.”
