How has Linden Grove School helped your child?

“Linden Grove’s summer program was awesome! My son loves Linden Grove- he does not cry and complain about going to school anymore. He is challenged and accepted. We are so grateful for Linden Grove.”

Tara from Kennedy Heights, OH

“My son has grown academically and socially in so many ways while attending Linden Grove School. He has made friends and has the environment to help his academic needs be reached.”

Gwen from Loveland, OH

“For the first time ever my son says he loves school. He has always dreaded getting up every day. Homework is beginning to get easier and he is more aware of what he is being asked to do versus looking lost and not knowing what to do. He also talks about his “friends” which he hasn’t ever done in the past.”

Tricia from Milford, OH

“My son started in first grade and is now in the fourth grade. His focus is better. His planning, organization, and following directions have improved significantly. There is a comprehensive approach to each child and if something is not working, the teachers and administrators are incredibly flexible and open to new ideas and strategies.”

Wendy from Golf Manor, OH

“My son is reading, writing and participating in activities with other children. He has gained self-confidence and a sense of belonging.”

Rhonda from Morrow, OH

“Linden Grove School has given my daughter a place where she is accepted for who she is and she is comfortable. She is making new friends and speaking to many people.”

Jamie from Batavia, OH

“LGS has helped my son learn to enjoy school. He survived in regular education but required one to one support. At Linden Grove, our son participates with his classmates in a group setting and is learning self-control. He enjoys the less frenetic activity of a smaller school.”

Peter and Beth from Mason, OH

“Our son is on grade level academically, he has grown more confident with his social skills and when his behavior goes awry, all kinds of modifications are made to help get him back on track. He has the most amazing teacher and aide who not only work with my son, but include my husband and I as well in the decision making process for either academics and/or behavior.”

Angie from Loveland, OH

“Everyday my son comes home happy and says his day was awesome. He has made friends.”

Kara from Deer Park, OH

“My son has thrived at Linden Grove. He now has real friends to socialize with. He has also grown so much academically that I am surprised every year at how much gain he is making. My son is happy going to school and is proud of his accomplishments. My son feels a sense of belonging and community.”

Jennifer from West Chester, OH

“My son’s math and reading skills have increased dramatically, especially in his first year at Linden Grove. The social skills that are taught at school also show outside of school. He loves school and his teachers so much that he is disappointed if we tell him he is too sick to go to school when he has a cold”

Al from Fairfield, OH

“Linden Grove has allowed my son to progress at an appropriate pace. The therapies that are incorporated into his daily routine are invaluable. He looks forward to go to school and enjoys his school work. His academic progress has been impressive and he is also improving socially.”

Gwen from Loveland, OH

“Linden Grove School exudes confidence. I have told others that have kids struggling that they should check out Linden Grove. I have told them that it is a very family oriented school and the support from the entire faculty, parents and other kids, in my son’s case, are far more than I have ever experienced. The faculty and staff are dedicated, devoted and understand versus my son just being another student.”

Tricia from Milford, OH

“I keep telling families how it has increased my son’s confidence and scholarship. The staff and faculty sincerely care about each child and it truly feels like a family- best decision we ever made.”

Wendy from Golf Manor, OH

“Linden Grove School cares about your child and your child’s future and provides an atmosphere that promotes independence, social interaction and learning.”

Rhonda from Morrow, OH

“The children at Linden Grove School are all comfortable with one another and are accepted for who they are. No one there is labeled, therefor, no one is “different” or “weird”. They are all great kids!”

Jamiie from Batavia, OH

"LGS is a place where your child will be able to learn to navigate academically and socially without constant attention. For Autism spectrum children, where unpredictable noise and chaos of hundreds of children in public school can cause meltdowns and shutdowns, LGS is a warm, caring, supportive and academically appropriate setting. LGS provides curriculum/programming not usually available in public school that meet the students’ needs and more effectively opens the world of learning and social interaction. As an accredited school, you’re not forced to choose between appropriate development and academic performance. LGS students know they are “different” but at school they accept each other without hesitation. The students truly become friends. At LGS, the kids relax so that learning and development occurs.”

Peter and Beth form Milford, OH

“Linden Grove will work with your child through good and bad times. Linden Grove will challenge your child academically and develop his social skills and good citizenship. Linden Grove feels like a family that really loves and cares for your child. Linden Grove will really help your child develop to their fullest potential.”

Jennifer from West Chester, OH

“Every child is unique and so are their educational needs and supports. If your child is not getting the supports they need or is not in an environment where they can achieve to their fullest potential, you should come see Linden Grove. This may be the best place for them to get an education.”

Al from Fairfield, OH

“It is a wonderful school. The small class sizes really help these kids get the attention they need. The special classes (art and music) have improved every year my son has been at LGS and they continue to work on improving the program. It also helps to be able to network with other families in similar situations. We couldn’t be happier with our choice for our son.”

Jeff from Wyoming, OH

“Linden Grove School is a place where all students of every level are motivated to succeed in a loving and caring manner. They individualize the curriculum to meet the needs of each and every student and make those students feel not only accepted, but VALUED as well. A parent couldn’t ask for more than that.”

Angie from Loveland, OH

“Please check it out. Especially if your child struggles with large groups and transitions”

Kara from Deer Park, OH

Why did you choose Linden Grove School?

“We were looking for a school that would fulfill our son’s needs on all basis; education, social and physical”

Gwen from Loveland, OH

“I chose Linden Grove for many reasons. First of all, the staff was exceptional at making me feel welcome. Other reasons include the fact that there is OT and Speech on site which eliminates the need for so many appointments in the evening. I love the small classroom ratios as well.”

Tricia from Milford, OH

“My son has very unique needs. His academic ability is one of his strengths; however, his fine and gross motor challenges had really begun to limit his social and emotional development. Linden Grove was recommended to us by clinicians and once we followed up and our son was tested, we realized it was a great fit.”

Wendy from Golf Manor, OH

“Linden Grove School has experienced qualified staff who shares parents’ goals of helping our children to succeed. They have small teacher to student ratio, a non-stressful learning environment and therapies and strategies customized as needed.”

Rhonda from Morrow, OH

“I have home-schooled until this year. My daughter has selective mutism, sensory issues, ADHD, PDD/NOS, and more likely than not, Autism. I needed a place where staff was trained in special needs so she could get the most out of school both academically and socially. Linden Grove School was recommended by her occupational therapist.”

Jamie from Batavia, OH

“We chose LGS because our son, after attending summer school for 2 summers, asked to go to LG. He went to summer school initially to keep him on a schedule part of the summer”

Beth and Peter from Mason, OH

“We chose Linden Grove for many reasons: the expertise of the Administration, Teaches and Staff, the fact that speech, occupational, music and art therapies were offered as part of the program and most of all the small class sizes. We knew that with low class numbers, our son would get more of the attention that he needed and deserved!”

Angie from Loveland, OH

“Small group settings, special workers that know how to handle my child”

Kara from Deer Park, OH

“The public school was unable to meet my son’s academic or social needs. Linden Grove offered the individualized education that has made school a positive for Tristan. The small class sizes, enrichment programs, trained and caring teachers and the sense of community found at Linden Grove are unmatched in the community.”

Jennifer from West Chester, OH

“We felt Linden Grove provided the best opportunity for our son to receive an education and to achieve his full potential. He would have small group instruction for all core academic classes in a school where the entire staff is trained to work with special needs students and we would have very little concern about bullying and no concern about the staff implementing his IEP.”

Al from Fairfield, OH

“Linden Grove has the right mix of academics and behavior therapy. They are very flexible with working with the kids and they truly care about helping our children.”

Joe from Withamsville, OH

“On our first visit to LGS, we knew this was “the place” for our son. We just had a great feeling about the school. We had been very worried about our son’s educational placement and we were thrilled to find LGS, it has been a perfect fit for Bennett.”
