School Reviews

5.0  6/20/2012
wonderful school. My two grandaughters transferred mid-year to Hartridge. One of them has improved her reading already. She hated reading but has such an attitude change since coming to hartridge. They love going to school. Before we had to fight it seemed getting them up in the am. What a wonderful change. They say every day we LOVE our school. We are so happy we changed. School should be not just work it should be fun. They have made my girls excited in going. Thankyou so much Hartridge Academy
