Mission

Port View Preparatory® is a collaborative educational school that caters to the unique needs of K-22 students with developmental disabilities, both mental and physical, incorporating research-based instruction and therapy to ensure personal, social and educational growth in a safe and nurturing setting.

"You guys are a new school but your experience and the love for the students are not. You guys are in the right field. You guys are impacting our children's lives and families in such beautiful way."
- Gilda Bates
"To be honest with you, I haven't had a worry or care in the world about Mikey's safety since he started at PVP."
- Rachel Darr
"My husband was just telling me how much he has seen an improvement in Wendy's behavior. She doesn't seem angry with herself, she seems content with herself, kind of like comfortable with herself, like she's going to be ok knowing she has everyone's support.  She will have difficult days I'm sure but hopefully less aggressive but she will know she will always have  our love, I am cherishing these days and more to come, thanks to you and all the staff."
- Rosa Soto
"My son had been to different Non Public Schools but nothing compared to Port View. We finally found the right and great  school for him. We feel at peace now sending him to school knowing that people will take care of him and able to handle his behaviors. We are so grateful because of this."
- Veronica Barin

Port View Preparatory® Co-Founders

 

Dr. Edward Miguel and Dr. Melaura Erickson-Tomaino founded Port View Preparatory® after observing many students not reaching their academic potential.

“Parents tell us what they value most is our ability to see their sons’ or daughters’ potential. We see beyond the challenges and are passionate about equipping children with life-changing gifts. ” –Dr. Miguel 

“Our mission is serving those individuals with special needs who didn’t succeed at regular schools. Seeing a mother’s delight and relief as her son becomes more independent brings us immeasurable joy.” –Dr. Tomaino
