Anova is a school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, has been operating at Davidson Middle School since 2008 and serves 60 students, from kindergarten to 12th grade.
The school now needs a bigger facility and could easily accommodate demand for 100 students.
Anova co-founder and CEO Andrew Bailey said:
“We could grow, but we’re pretty much out of space,”
Anova leaders are trying to raise $8 million to build a new facility that can accommodate more students and meet their specialized educational needs.
Parent Sarah Horowitz of Greenbrae says in the The Marin News:
“I would really love to send my child to a school with a gym, a library, a cafeteria, not to mention it would be great to have dedicated rooms for art and music,”
Her son, Joshua 14 has Asperger’s syndrome and is finishing his fourth year at Anova. Horowitz said she has seen significant improvements in her son’s academic, social and behavior skills.
Anova also runs schools in Santa Rosa and Concord.
