Our first graduate and namesake, Dane, graduated from TBS in 2021.

Congratulations, Dane!

Our son is flourishing at The Burkard School. We have watched him transform into a more confident, self assured, and happy child who enjoys going to school now. He has learned new tools to help himself understand what his body needs and given the freedom to flex those options throughout the day. He seems more comfortable now with verbal expression of his feelings and shows a new sense of empathy for others. The teachers and staff at TBS have been extremely organized, positive, thoughtful and compassionate. We are watching our son unfold academically now that he is in place that truly sees him and understands his inherent strengths, as well as, his challenges. We are so grateful to have found such a great school for our son!
