- Angela Davis

To learn more about The Arbor School of Central Florida, please visit their website:
TUMC is incredibly blessed to announce its partnership with the welcomed addition of The Arbor School of Central Florida to our campus full-time.
Since 2002, Arbor School has provided a leading-edge, academically sound and therapeutically-based learning approach for special needs students.
The most important thing any one person can do to improve the lives of children with autism or other special needs is to accept them for who they are and to celebrate their talents.
The culture of understanding and acceptance at The Arbor School helps to foster each child’s self-esteem, allowing them to truly shine. In this atmosphere, children know that they are safe, cared for, and understood, which in turn provides confidence to increase academically, improve socially, learn to self-advocate, and develop leadership skills.
