Student Success Story

Nicholas Nelson- 8th Grade

Nicholas came to UPA when he was in first grade. He was diagnosed with Aspergers and ADHD and was struggling to focus in classroom settings. He described his experience in a public school classroom as feeling like he was in a barrel and that all the students and noises within the large classroom, made it difficult for him to focus and learn. His Mother brought him to UPA looking for an environment that would give him the ability to learn and thrive despite his disabilities. Nicholas is now in 8th grade and is one of the students excelling at UPA. He is not only grasping the material and learning per his grade level, but he is also a published author. He credits his success to the intervention learning class that fostered an environment where he was excited to learn and given the support he needed to excel. Nicholas is now upping his game with education and we see amazing things in his future.
