David G. Fisher , an attorney in our Lake Wales office, is serving a one year term as Chair of the Board of Trustees of Our Children’s Academy in Lake Wales beginning on July 1. Our Children’s Academy is public charter school founded in 2006 based on the belief by the founders, Board of Trustees, staff and administration that early intervention is critical to helping children with special needs. The school provides a safe, positive and nurturing learning environment to develop communication skills, social skills, academic/technical skills and their self-confidence. Our Children’s Academy serves children with conditions such as down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy, along with children with other behavioral, social or developmental delays. Our Children’s Academy has grown from 18 students in 2006 to nearly 190 students today, which is its maximum capacity. Our Children’s Academy currently serves pre-k through 6th grade, and will be opening a middle school next year, followed by a high school in the near future. Our Children’s Academy has recently embarked on a capital campaign to raise the funds necessary to build a state of the art campus for its elementary school located on land already owned by the school.
