There is always good and bad with everything. I know for a fact that HVA is working hard for my child. My child is not an over achiever and always needs a push and some guidance, thus far HVA has given that to my child. My only concern is the demerits which leads to in school. I have no problem with in-school itself, but I feel that a student should be doing something while sitting there. I don't care if it's math, science reading or otherwise. I think a child would think it's worse if you they stay in school and do more work on a Friday then just sitting at a desk. The demerit system needs to be evaluated. Sometimes it's just not warranted.
