History

Sophia Opportunity School was envisaged and begun in 1972 by Sister Joelle, SND, and has continued by the dedicated hard work of more Sisters of Notre Dame and their collaborators. The school began in a humble way with just four students in one of the rooms then available. With the growing number of students classes had to be conducted in the basement of an old building. Gradually, as the school built up a reputation in the field of rehabilitation of children with special needs, the increasing numbers of students made it necessary to build a school spacious enough. Now there are more applicants than can be accommodated, and there is continuous need for improvements to the facilities and equipment.

The school now has 186 students. Over 1000 children have gained training in our school and many are working along with their parents' businesses and are doing well. Sophia Opportunity School is a much better place because of each one of them; we are proud of them, and grateful to their parents! Its is a safe caring environment with individualized teaching methods to enable students to thrive. We accept children who are four and above years old and have special learning needs: learning disabilities, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, mild autism or mild to moderate mental retardation, etc.
