Make sure you ask your child what happened before you assume anything that anyone from Belle chasse academy says is true. Review all work, read through the cumulative records and have a witness with you at any meetings you have with that school. Keep documentation!

There are very few reasons to send your child to this school. The staff takes center stage here, not your child's education or well being.
