We've been in town for a year and struggled with finding a middle school that fits some of the special education needs of our family. The Minneapolis school we chose had many great folks but was understaffed for special education and we found a good number of staff were not as trained as we would have liked them to be. We are now looking for school programs with therapeutic staff who are a daily part of the school community. This was common where we moved from. We have heard good things about the intermediate districts - especially 287. We'd need to be in Richfield, Edina, Hopkins, or St. Louis Park. Have any of these school districts worked well with special needs* kids in your family. We're looking to move into one of these communities. Would prefer as much racial/cultural diversity and plenty of programs for teens in the area. Thanks for any thoughts.

My cousin is a special ed teacher in St. Louis Park and speaks highly of their system. For what it's worth, I know this is on the other side of town, but my brother really flourished in the program at Mounds View.
