The Rise School, which opened in August of 2007, provides the highest quality early childhood education to all young children including those with developmental disabilities such as Down syndrome, Stroke, Epilepsy and Cerebral Palsy. The Rise School is a privately funded, not-for-profit organization that receives the vast majority of its funding from grants and private donations. Among the excellent services provided at the school are: 3:1 child/instructor ratio; music, occupational, physical & speech therapists on staff; and scholarships for students. The Rise School is currently preparing for and looking forward to the opening of our second classroom in the upcoming months, as there are currently 25 families on the waiting list to get into the school.
