Hi there, I am mom to three, it has been literally three or four years since I have been on Mothering, but I remember how helpful this place was with my last move!  We relocated from the suburbs of Seattle WA.  My eldest daughter 8 is on the autism spectrum but very brilliant, my middle child violet 6 is just amazing and I have a 3 year old super climber named Eli.  We had enrolled our girls at The New School Montessori Center in Holly Springs, but they have not been able to deal with my oldest.


She was successful at a Montessori in Seattle, so I was hopeful about the placement here.  Now I am looking for other good options for the girls in the area.  We tried public school in Kindergarten but it was a nightmare.  Are the public schools good here?  Do they provide extra support needed for children with special needs?


If not do you know of any good private schools who might be more understanding of a child who is academically capable, but socially not advanced.  Thank you in advance!

I don't know much about schools down towards Cary. I do know that there is Sterling Montessori in Morrisville, which a (free) public charter school. It's been formally recognized as a "North Carolina Public School of Excellence". GOOD LUCK!

Where in Cary are you located? I can speak very highly of our public kindy experience here.  I am not too familiar with programs for kids on the spectrum, but I know there is one autistic child in my son's classroom.  I have another friend who specifically requested this elementary school for her eldest, who is also on the spectrum.
