Thank you and your team from the bottom of my heart. AJ loves school and his friends. Everyday he grows more and more. Engaging and talking to others was something I only dreamed of. Thanks to all of you – dreams now come true!!!
Beth Patrick, one very happy mom!
We believe that our family is so blessed that our son has so many professionals working with him and that he is at MDE School. We also believe that more speech, OT and PT is what many of these kids need to work on for underlying neurological issues! That, in combination with addressing and treating underlying bio-medical issues – it has to be a multifaceted approach to ultimately get the whole child better – no one thing can go alone.

This is an extraordinary place where children are engaged at their levels. There is a great emphasis placed on academics and a high bar! These students are well supported and meet that bar. Terrific focus on life skills and therapies offered too! We love you MDE!
Marian & Paul Mason, MDE School Parents
After a realization that public school was no longer an option for us, we were homeschooling. Home schooling was not ideal either, but you do what you have to do to keep your baby safe! Mindy opened MDE the following year with 3 children, one of them being my son. We all have been so blessed to have been a part of the MDE from the beginning. Words can not express the feeling of watching the school’s growth and progress. It has truly been AMAZING! No person or place is perfect, but MDE is perfect for us. I no longer worry about my son’s well being. I know that the teachers and staff have all the students best interest at heart.
Angie Monday, MDE School Parent
Before coming to MDE, our daughter attended 4 years of public school then 3 years in a very good Special Needs private school. Throughout those years, we always questioned “is she in the right place?”
We are closing on our 2nd year at MDE, and we never ask ourselves that question. By the end of her first year at MDE, she made more progress academically and socially than ALL her previous years of school combined.
Before attending MDE, I felt we had been in the same place for years seeing only minimal progression. We believe it is due to the “one on one” daily instruction, smaller environment, flexibility in schedules including therapies and the caring teachers/staff who are ALL wonderful and dedicated to helping their students grow.
Everyone knows each other well and celebrates each child for who he/she is and the progress they make.
I appreciate how MDE recognizes the value of enrichment programs by coordinating with our local community bringing yoga, themed clubs (dance, Lego, Equestrian, etc), after school classes, field trips, and working with senior living centers.
