What Parents and Students Say About Our Special Education School


The people I met didn’t treat me differently, they treated me as an equal and I’m happy to graduate from here.

Student on Regard

In my nine years in Pepin, I had fun making friends, playing sports, and always learning something new.

Student on Connection

Words could not express our gratitude to the entire staff. We were blessed to have such a wonderful group of humans helping Joseph go through each stage of his life. The compassion, love, concern and understanding of the entire staff that was displayed year after year was very comforting. Great Job to each one of you who have been part of his life and part of our family.

Joseph's Parent

Zion enrolled in Pepin Academies during her 3rd-grade year, severely traumatized by her previous educational experiences, which complicated her medical conditions. By the 9th grade, Zion told me she no longer wanted to take medicine for ADHD because of the side effects. Zion wanted to prove to herself that she would graduate with her cohort. Her Neurologist agreed. It was a long hard road. Overall, Zion has accomplished her goal of graduating with her high school diploma, and this is also because of the curriculum, special needs support, and mental health services provided at Pepin.

Zion's Parent

Thank you is an understatement! I will always be grateful for the administrators, teachers, and staff of Pepin Academies. My son, Michael will be a successful citizen thanks to the Falcon Family!

Michael's Parent

We are so pleased with all the staff at Pepin. Before Pepin, Brian had never received an ‘A’ on his report card. He has learned more & wanted to try harder in the 6yrs at Pepin than he had his first 7yrs of school. We can’t thank everyone enough for the blood, sweat, and tears that you all put into the school and students, every day. We will miss everyone as he moves on to the next chapter in his life. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!!
