Open house: Ann Arbor High School for students with high-functioning autism

This is from the March 2011 issue of A Different Path, a newsletter for families with school-age special needs children in Washtenaw County.

Veritas Christi's Open House

Could Veritas Christi H.S. be right for a child you know?

If your child or a child you know struggles with distractions at typical schools, has trouble connecting with teachers in a large classroom or for whom social issues detract from their learning, then VCHS may be worth a look. Matthew Landrum, chair of the English department, says that currently no class has more than 5  students, and the school maximum is 8 per class.

He says the school has students diagnosed with Asperger's and others for whom the stress of a hundred kids in the hallway between classes was deterring their academics. He says there is more teacher attention, teachers stay after school and most students finish their home-work at school..

The Open House is 

March 20th (Sunday) and March 27th (Sunday) 
from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
410 S. Maple Rd., Ann Arbor, MI

The school is always open to visitors and more information can be found at the Veritas Christi Website.
