This past summer I had the opportunity to visit Dean College in Franklin, Massachusetts. I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew of its strong reputation of helping kids who didn’t do so well in high school to get back on their feet, and I knew they have a strong program for students with learning differences.
I was pleased to find the campus a very pleasant place, with its library undergoing a complete renovation, and the “feel” one might expect from a small, New England campus. Plus it’s a stone’s throw from the commuter rail, and thus an easy jaunt into downtown Boston. I was impressed.
This recent artlcle from the Boston Globe attests to the value of the kind of education Dean focuses upon.
