This is not segregation this is my daughter Least Restricted Environment. For many years I heard "I want my child to be with Typical Kids" My daughter Ashley has been going to Lake Hills for 10 years now. My daughter progress shows that she is in her least restricted environment and that she receives a Free Appropriate Public Education.

I love the new facility and it is a blessing for ALL.

The truth about Lake Hills and the WOW factor for me is the staff and the administration.

For Ashley it is more than a school it is a home a place where she learns, grows, and makes friendships that will last even in her adult life. Ashley can be proud of herself and all she does without feeling different or trying to typical. Ashley is unique and you will never be able to duplicate her.

The staff has giving my daughter a heartbeat a life!!!! Ashley went from severe behavioral issues and not being able to attain conversation or being taught for more than 5 minutes without an issue, to being one of the most polite young ladies and good listener there is.

Ashley has learned to be appropriate and she wants to learn.

Lake Hills goes the extra miles everyday for all there students and I am proud of myself as a mom for making one of the hardest decisions in my life to have Ashley attend Lake Hills even though the Eustis building was what is was it gave my daughter an opportunity to be Educated in her Least Restricted Environment.

I am honored to say MY DAUGHTER goes to Lake Hills and many people know who she is and how far she’s come and it is all because of the teachings at Lake Hills School.

Thank you for all you do
