In my opinion this school will try to do what ever they want with your child. YAI is a great agency. HHG is the opposite the Management is inadeque and brushes of all problems. They will make you feel like your the problem. They are not a parent friendly school. as soon as you disagree with them on an issue they will single you out.Let's just say for the kids under 3 are learning nothing productive. The teacher in my opinion is un creative and frequently absent. For those who decide to place their child here, my advice to you is to stay on top of your child's progress. If your child is in early intervention ask for a parent involvement. Your able to see your child every month to see how your child is doing upstairs. It's not only for signing progress reports every 3,6,9,12 months. If your child is in preschool ask to observe your child in the classroom, with the therapist so you may carry over at home They have an (open door policy) which many parents DONT* get to execute. Know that your not alone and theirs always someone higher( YAI headquarters) if your having any issues or concerns within the school. Your not alone and no one knows your child better than you.

Aside from other comments: The school steps and setting- it is not perfect but neither is so it falling apart and it is doable. Other schools work in lesser conditions and strive. Regarding the calling and not getting a call back. This has happened to me in two occasions. After the second time, I addressed it to the school and has been corrected. Regarding rude staff, location and weak security: Have not encountered a rude teacher or staff and if I did they will hear from me. The location is not the best but they help children strive! (Fact: Charter Schools are great schools located in not so great locations). Security, this is true it was weak however they have been beefing up security procedures since my son enrolled in 2011. All I can say is my experience and that of my son has been great! The teachers and staff are all wonderful and it shows the love and support they gave my son, as my son would brag about his teachers daily. My son went from not talking to expressing himself. All I have to say is great things about this school.

This school serves children with special needs, they also have an integrated program. They play ground is not surrounded in grass, there is that soft black padding around it all. Kids receive all the necessary services they would need -occupational, speech, etc... Kids classes are mixed with some high and low functioning and ages are mixed as well. This gives students the opportunity to learn from one another and learn to accept people. I think this is a great school.

I just went to the school yesterday, the steps inside the schools is made of stone and there are no cushions on the steps- 3 years old are expected to climb up and down the steps-I do not know whether they would pay as much attention as parents would do- and in case the child falls- I do not even know whether they would inform parents- I am a little nervous about the steps and the play ground is full of grass.

Harry H. Gordon school is the best in my opinion. This is my sons third year and he loves it, as well as I do. He is learning so such there. When my son was 2yrs he started attending. He didn't speak or play with toys. 2 months of being in the school he started clapping for the first time, so amazing. Now at the age of 4, he knows his ABC's, 123's, some colors, sings songs, and is speaking so much. This year I know he'll improve a lot more. He has improved so much, I'm so happy with the school and the staff are amazing. Thank you to all the staff for helping my son in so many ways.
