Home Link School is extremely unorganized. The new administration seems to think that a school can still run with all the good teachers gone, and a one person office staff who is completely overwhelmed. Students are leaving this schoold due to new lower quality teachers coming in and an uptight highly political administration.The extra activities they offer are now being cut and they can no longer compete with a highly rated private high school. It is going down hill fast.The only thing still holding it together is the parent involvement and they too are frustrated and removing their children.Do you child a favor and put them in a REAL school. The education they get will be better and you will not have to worry about whether their credits will transfer- We learned the hard way that this school is hooky and my son lost half of his credits when he transferred out. Come to find out my son was one of many that lost credits- the school actually had to pull a video tape for a child who was in drama because they said there was no documentation he was in the class. WOW messed up.
