What Parents Have To Say

Having to write and talk about our family interests, strengths and weaknesses with my son has made me understand him better and become closer to him. Before the outplacement process I thought I knew what type of school he wanted and needed...however, throughout this process I discovered that what I believed was not necessarily accurate.
— Alum Parent
Corlears was a passionate advocate for my daughter with schools. The outplacement director had such confidence in her capacity as a learner, and I know she communicated this to schools… someone at Dalton heard her loud and clear.
— Alum Parent
[Our son] has grown so much through this experience, and now, while he still feels sad about leaving, he is no longer afraid of the future. He feels informed and excited. We feel certain that the experience he has had throughout his nine years at Corlears has been the right mix of warm nurturing and creative learning that will serve him well into the next stage of his education.
