Fraser School gets four stars

Richfield-based Fraser School has received a top rating from an organization that rates pre-kindergarten offerings.

Parent Aware evaluates organizations on a scale of one to four stars. Fraser School Director Deedee Stevens-Neal said the four-star recognition comes with some heft.

“Parent Aware is an important indicator of the quality of an early childhood program,” Stevens-Neal said. “We are pleased to have been rated as a 4-Star center again. I’m proud of our staff to have earned the highest rating in this system.”

Fraser School is a child care center and preschool that combines students with typical needs with those who have special needs. The goal is each type of student contributes to the other’s development in ways made possible by the blended environment.

The school is a division of Fraser, Minnesota’s largest and most experienced provider of autism services. Fraser also provides services for mental health and other developmental disabilities for children and adults with special needs through health care, housing and education.
