My daughter is an international student, and we were looking for an environment, that afforded structure, discipline and a nurturing environment that would allow her first and foremost to be happy and to thrive. Applewood has been amazing at achieving this! My daughter is high functioning Autism, but was having challenges socially. She was becoming difficult to manage. within the first three months changes were visible. Her conversation was positive, and she was making greater efforts at being more mature. Academically, the school met her at her level and developed innovative ways to impart learning. The school adapted to meet her. I had been looking for this structure for sometime. I now feel more comfortable with the direction of my daughter's growth.
