“I have seen such a difference in my son since he entered the Y.A.L.E. School, Ellisburg campus.  I love that he is in a safe learning environment where the staff call and communicate with me often. Nick says he is very comfortable at Y.A.L.E. and that the teachers are very nice to him. He is making great growth in math and he also loves his Woodshop and Visual Arts classes.“

“I love everything about Y.A.L.E. School. My child has been at Y.A.L.E. School Ellisburg since 2017 and is in the 8th grade now. Since being at Y.A.L.E. he loves to read, mind you he has always hated reading. Mrs. D is wonderful, she has reached out to me to update me on my child, good or bad. She puts in place different strategies to help my son be successful at Y.A.L.E. I have seen academically my sons progress in a short time. Math is so much better also. Mrs. Colonna is a great teacher she will email me everyday to update me on my child, good or bad. This school puts a lot of effort to give children with emotional challenges everything they need to be successful. I wish I could send all my kids to Y.A.L.E. School Ellisburg. Thank you for all of your support and understanding.”

School Ellisburg we have seen such improvement in our son.  As a new family to the Y.A.L.E. community the staff at Ellisburg have made us feel very comfortable,  addressed our concerns and provided us with resources.  I am most impressed with their level of professionalism and the determination to help us help our son.”

“Since my son started Y.A.L.E., he has overcome a lot of obstacles.  He has grown in many different ways.  The learning is good. It’s a great environment for him to grow.  If you’re looking for a great change, I recommend this school.  This school has great teachers, always concerned about their students.”

“Y.A.L.E School Ellisburg has been nothing short of a miracle!  You have truly changed the life of a child who was once depressed with a feeling of not belonging to now a child who goes to bed happy,wakes up happy and even wants to go to school on weekends! Her teacher along with staff are truly the most amazing compassionate “family” who have turned this little girls life around and for this we thank you!”

“Just the other day as we were celebrating Royce’s 9th birthday I began to think about how far he has come. The Y.A.L.E. School has played a major role in his development. His first few years of school in our district was very tough for him and our family. Once he enrolled at Y.A.L.E. I began to see him change gradually and now, well he’s like a different child. He enjoys being at school, and I enjoy watching him grow. As a parent, one of the things that helped me with the transition to the school was the way the teachers and administration made me feel. I still remember the first conversation I had about Royce’s day. I couldn’t remember if he actually had a problem or incident because of all the positive statements the teacher made and continues to make before mentioning an incident. As a parent, we need to hear the positive. I appreciate that. I also appreciate the time the teachers and administration take to speak to Royce about his ideas for the school. There’s so much he wants to do, they listen and encourage him. With this type of support, I’m sure Royce will reach his highest potential. We’re glad that our son attends the Y.A.L.E. School!”

“Since my son, Rodney, has started attending Y.A.L.E. School, he has made some amazing accomplishments.  When Rodney started at Y.A.L.E. School, he could barely write.  He started a year and a half ago.  Rodney is now able to read, write, do mathematics and other subjects.  Before Y.A.L.E. School, Rodney was a completely different person, he was very physically and verbally aggressive.  He very rarely has these behaviors anymore.  He actually went to school for two weeks straight without an incident, which is unbelievable.  He comes home every day with mostly positive reports now.  Y.A.L.E. School has done very well with Rodney and I believe that has a lot to do with the relationship he has with his teacher, Mr. Flancer.  Y.A.L.E. school is the best thing that could have happened to Rodney.  He finally likes to go to school.  Thank you Y.A.L.E. School and staff.”

“I went to the Cherry Hill campus (now Ellisburg campus) in the mid 90s to 2000s. When I first arrived, I was out of control.  I was diagnosed with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Thanks to the instructors here, I learned to read when public schools had given up on me. Despite my initial wild behaviors, instructors like Maggie Rhodes, Anna Bouvier, Stephanie Jefferys, and a few others refused to give up on me. Turned me into a better person. After attending school I actually received a scholarship to attend Wilmington University found an amazing job and did everything that people said I’d never be able to do. Thanks to instructors at that campus. I could not be more grateful for the time I spent there, and the amount of energy that School spent on me. I really credit my success in life to the instructors refusal to give up on me. Thank you so much!”
