A message from Executive Director, Kim Snow:

This year represents our 20th year as an organization and school. In 2003, The Whole Learning School was founded by a group of parents who needed a better place for their children. We are so happy they took that first step. We continue to build on that foundation to meet the needs of neurodiverse people, from toddlers to 20-somethings through our five program areas.

I am honored to be leading our organization during this part of our 20-year journey. I look forward to continued growth, for our organization and all our families, as we plan for the next 20 years of unlocking potential.
