    "This Seneca school provides much needed support for youth in our community. The staff are hard working and provide unconditional care to each child and their family, individualizing the services provided for everyone enrolled. I am honored to work at a place where the staff are so dedicated to helping children and families."

    "As a school district representative, I have been working with Seneca Center for several years. In addition to providing a professional and welcoming environment, Seneca has provided our students with a quality education and an abudnance of supplementary supports and services. Seneca staff has frequently exceeded my expectations. Seneca is a leader in their field, as they provide a clear perspective on learning and behavior change. Seneca demonstrates compassion and care. They truly understand the needs of our students."

    "I am the parent of a soon to be 6th grade boy. He has attended Seneca Center for 3 years and I must say they have been an amazing 3 years. I no longer get phone calls to pick him up early or that he was disruptive during the day. He has been on honor role for 3 years straight and his self confidence has sky rocketed. This is a true testament to the commitment and support that each and every staff member has. My son is on his way to an amazing private middle school and I truly believe that it has been made possible because of the staff and the skills that they have taught him that he was able to withstand the interview process and even better, getting accepted. Seneca Center, James Baldwin Academy is the absolute BEST!! We are so grateful for the last 3 years and any parent that has been struggling with the public school system not understanding or not having the tools should strongly consider this wonderful school."

    "I've worked with districts referring students to special education programs for a long time and Seneca's James Baldwin Academy is by far my favorite. The staff are professional, courteous and responsive. The interventions are thoughtful, appropriate and effective. And, best of all, student outcomes clearly show this! For students who have not previously been successful in public schools and who need a blend of consistent structure with loving care/attention, Baldwin Academy is the place. From the intake process, students are invited to be involved in their own treatment and given a voice. Family engagement is also a priority, which shows in everything from how IEPs are held to how parent communication occurs or the variety of family therapy options. I've worked with many kids placed at James Baldwin who have graduated from high school, mainstreamed back to public schools, enrolled in local colleges, earned jobs, restored relationships they've severed long ago or found their identities. The staff truly match vision with action here!"

    "With upper grade levels, horrendous classroom management; policies implemented on children are reactionary; teachers look miserable; and staff called out to problems instead of monitoring in-class behavior. With lower grade levels, better classroom management as more staff to deal with less physically challenging behavioral problems. With over 900 employees, it's no wonder staff are frustrated; the top down managerial style imposes power limiting restrictions because the organization offers "unconditional care" (translation= economy is so bad that staff can't step up and give kids tough love since organization has already vested in NOT kicking the kid out no matter what and can keep their income source coming in as long as staff do their part...i.e. mouth shut). Why even have a point system to promote better behavior? Kids know if they act up, they will not fail placement one way or another. This place is about $$$ and not education. For the amount of overhead this company has, it is not efficient; parents beware. You kid will not learn when there are thunderous temper tantrums directly behind the classroom DAILY. Kudos on the best day care taxpayer money can provide."
