Wonderful and unique school for students with learning differences, especially for those with a high academic capacity. They learn self advocacy, develop confidence and benefit from a warm community. Quaker philosophy, special education and support services are integrated into the curriculum.
I appreciated Mary McDowell’s earnest efforts to keep me safe as a trans (at the time) and queer student. I felt that students of color were not as protected, and the administration could have been more adamant about abhorring racism and listening to students of color. My experience was also that of an upper middle class white person, so I was not fully aware of unfairness that might have been occurring.
