“Shrub Oak is the best thing to happen to our family.

In these uncertain times I could not be more happy that my 15 year old son is in such a safe and engaging environment. While I miss my him terribly and hate being so far away (we are in Northern California) I am relieved to finally have partners in my life that love and care for him as well as, if not better than, I would be able to right now. The staff is being extra careful. They are providing activities to keep him engaged beyond anything that I could.

The amount of love, care and hope that is present among all the staff and faculty is heart warming to me as a mom. I have likened it to LoveTea or LoveSoup and that the kids are continually being steeped in this healing brew that cannot help but affect them in positive ways. I am touched and amazed by the accommodations and adjustments that are continually made to make things work, to provide the most encouraging learning environment. Shrub Oak is not inexpensive but it is worth it and even more so during this evolving crisis. I am beyond grateful.”
