Thank you for the tip. Yes, the special needs info is key. We have found that a typical family's experience of a school can differ greatly from a special needs family's experience of a school. That's the problem we have where we live right now---the school has won awards and people are on a waiting list to get in. However, their special education program is severely lacking, but we did not know that going into it. We just heard nothing but positive things in general about the school and figured that was enough. Now we know better.
