    "The only 1-star review? No, there are several. Check LDRESOURCES.COM too. Don't enroll your child at Brehm without doing your research. Be wary of a list of parent references that is provided by a school. Find former Brehm students and parents online and talk to them. Talk to ed consultants who have actually had clients attend Brehm. Based on our experience, I would never recommend Brehm. Communication from the school was abysmal. Aside from 1 parent-teacher conference, there was zero communication from teachers. Admins didn't follow the school's own handbook or spec ed law requirements. It was common to receive contradictory information from different staff members about the same event on the same day and no follow up thereafter. If your child is placed at Brehm by a public school district, you may be surprised to be handed a financial contract on enrollment day and told you must sign it. It happened to us and many others that day. The law prohibits private schools from charging parents for spec ed services pursuant if a child is placed there by a public school. But that didn't stop Brehm. Consult a lawyer before signing anything at Brehm."

    "I recently read the only one-star review of Brehm Preparatory School, and was very surprised at what it said. Our child has been at Brehm for some time and is now enrolled at OPTIONS, the post-graduate program. Our experience has not been perfect, and we doubt that anyone else with a learning disabled child has found perfection at any school. However, without very, very few exceptions, we have found Brehm's work to be outstanding in every aspect. Communication can always be better, but we have found that it is very much a two-way street and that Brehm will accommodate any reasonable request for more information and more frequent updates. We're delighted with the progress our child has made and highly recommend Brehm to any family whose student qualifies for the programs."

    "Brehm's goal is to help students with learning disabilities. However their goal is to get these students to a full high school diploma in approximately a normal amount of time. Therefore it is not an appropriate school for students who are not capable of, with help, doing normal classwork. With that caveat, it does a tremendous job and was of immense help to our daughter who graduated with honors and is now attending a serious four-year college. It does this with small classes and a great deal of support outside of class. Students are allowed off campus according to rules that depend on their past behavior. However it is not a locked down campus. There is nothing that physically prevents them from leaving campus. The two negatives about the school are the high cost and the remote location. It is located in Carbondale Illinois, 2 1/2 hours from St. Louis which is the closest major airport."

    "Brehm provides support for the whole student. Brehm's fabulous teachers use a variety of techniques that assist students with complex learning differences to make the most of their abilities. We were unsure when our daughter first arrived at Brehm, what her academic future would be; now she is a student at a state university. Brehm provides students with a solid education along with techniques and strategies to deal with their learning differences. In addition, their program supports social and emotional development of each student. The entire staff, faculty and administration work together to provide a supportive environment to each and every student. Their social-emotional support continues as they reach out to former students in need of assistance. We feel blessed to have learned of this wonderful school and to have been a part of the Brehm family for 3 years."

    "Brehm Prep is an incredible school. Caring, devoted teachers and staff who are experts in dealing with kids with learning differences. My child is completing a level of academic work I never thought was possible before we came to Brehm. The emphasis on all areas of functioning from academics to socialization, make us very happy. Your child will love it, they have everything you expect to see in a high school experience, and all the staff and students are all so friendly. Everyone cares about your child's happiness and success--peers and teachers. They go the extra mile to ensure each student is happy, healthy and thriving. Lots of wonderful recreational activities, every day. The students all genuinely care for each other and support each other. The students love Brehm! All of this and fantastic facilities, gorgeous campus. This is a great school, don't hesitate to send your child to Brehm. You will be so glad that you did."
