My daughter transferred a few months ago to this school. She is ADHD and I immediately noticed her behavior improved. She still have days in which I get complains of her over talking but quite excited that the teacher knows how to work with her. Her reading has gone from almost non existent to reading 1 and 2 books in a row and wants to keep on. This truly makes my heart happy. Thanks Mrs. Sikorski, Kianna and I truly appreciate you.

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
