We have a moderate-functioning autistic 8-year-old and a gifted 12-year-old. We're looking at several places trying to find the best possible services for our 8-year-old and have come across The Vista School. Two questions:

First, looking for any parents with children who have attended The Vista School -- what have your experiences been?

Second, understanding that we'd have to move to the area and enroll our child in a public school initially, we're looking for recommendations on school districts that can serve both of our very different children.

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

We have an ordinary first grader in Hershey schools. With taxable property including corporate headquarters, three chocolate factories, a theme park, and many of its residents cared for in a private school reaping the profits therefrom, the Derry Township (aka Hershey) school district is pretty well off. Many of the residents of Hershey are medical and other professionals (the chocolate workers tend to live in cheaper nearby Lebanon County) and school director elections are much more hotly contested than township supervisors. Stay-at-home parents are very much the norm here, the PTO meets during the day. Hopefully someone will come along who can comment on your more specific needs.
