My child came here doing well in reading and math. When he went back to troy... he lost everything. He was very behind in reading and math. It was like he regressed in his grade level. My neighbors from troy tried to talk me out of sending him here and I wish I listened. What made me very angry was how I kept getting told that my child was doing great in class and matched the level of his peers and making progress... then he goes back to troy and is embarrassed about what he doesn't how to do. Also no music, art, computers, etc.

Be very careful agreeing to send your child to this school. They will never get out and will lose tons of gains and come out with more issues.
