“I am exceptionally grateful that Leaways has provided my son, and many other unique children, the opportunity to be educated both academically, socially & emotionally.”

“The school Principal is extremely welcoming; it is clear that he cares about each individual child and he always puts the needs of the children first.”

“My child is learning to focus on the curriculum and her social skills are improving.”

"You have got a good measure of our child and we really like your straightforward, no-nonsense approach with her. Our child responds well to such consistent and firm boundaries. We are sure they will do well with you all at High Peak. Thank you."
