Ramsey came to The Helix School from another top private school setting positioned toward children with learning differences.
The team at Helix got to know Ramsey as an individual. Ramsey’s personal interests were used as motivators to engage him in his customized learning experience.

The Helix team are dedicated, consistent professionals with access to cutting-edge methods that support our child’s educational path. The Helix team is as invested in our child’s success as we are.

Helix embodies a collaborative approach of family involvement within their educational system. Our experience has been that this approach really helps our son take what he is learning at Helix and apply it to everyday life in other environments. This is not something Ramsey experienced before attending The Helix School. Life skills, advocating needs, the arts: Helix educates the whole child and the education is beyond just bookwork. I believe Helix is one of the most comprehensive special education programs worldwide. We couldn’t be more pleased with our son’s program.

After years of struggling in school, our son has finally been able to grow and thrive in the nurturing environment and individualized program at the Helix School. We are eternally grateful for the thoughtfulness of all the staff and the caring attitude that permeates every room at the school.

Like many families, our journey to finding a positive and productive school program for our child with special needs has been a long and winding one, especially at the transition to middle school. After looking at close to a dozen schools from San Anselmo to Santa Cruz, we had the good fortune to find The Helix School.

We immediately felt a sense of warm welcome from the moment we arrived at Helix for the parent tour. Every person we have met at Helix seems to genuinely love working at the school. The entire team at Helix has been extremely respectful and caring with Joseph. Their amazing faculty and staff have devoted time to building positive, trusting relationships, learning about Joseph’s strengths and likes, as well as his challenges. They’ve worked thoughtfully and tirelessly to build an environment where he is comfortable, happy, engaged, and thriving. At Helix, Joseph is appreciated as a full, growing person—someone with special talents, interests, humor, quirks, ways to contribute, and ways to grow. We are so lucky to have found this magical place where our child can enjoy school, learn and grow, gain confidence and skills— and be happy and loved every day!
