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

Steve S.

Former student

“My previous special education school and my local board of education had already written me off at the age of 8 prior to attending Y.A.L.E. School. Within a year after I finished my time at Y.A.L.E., I was declassified and never turned back! At the Cherry Hill campus I was not only met with support and empathy, but I was given opportunities to flourish athletically, academically, and artistically. All of those traits led to me eventually getting accepted to Rowan University. There is no doubt in my mind that I owe a great part of my success to the four years I spent at Y.A.L.E. in my formative, pre-adolescent years.”

Alyson A.

Parent

After our son experienced a terrible time in the local middle school, we heard about Y.A.L.E. from a friend. Nicolas was in the 4th grade. He spent two wonderful years with Mr. James and his staff, learning new behavioral strategies. He returned to the regular school district at the end of 7th grade. Today he is a junior in high school, motivated, and loving school. He would not be where he is today without the support and guidance of Y.A.L.E. School.”

Brenda G.

Parent

Y.A.L.E. was like a beacon of hope in the vast storm of our lives.

After spending the last couple of years at this school I know that my son will be able to make his way in this world and I know that he will be ok. He is constantly learning the tools he needs to cope and get along in a world that was once so completely foreign to him. Not to mention my son is never ever threatened or harmed at school any more. This is something that cannot be expressed in words. I will eternally be grateful to this wonderful group of people and excellent school system. They only want to help our children be OK in a world that is not willing to help them most of the time.”
