School Reviews

This is a very poorly run organization. Corporate sends a new head of school every year so there is very little consistency from year to year. It feels like the DC campus is a training center for Administrators. The academic course load is rigorous, great if your child is genius but if not it will be a tough year. Rules are inflexible and very little support is provided students until they are failing. By the time is a student is in 7th grade, they only have one elective for either art, music or phys ed. Wish we had chosen differently.
