This review goes out to Triad alternative school in Sarasota fl. I could not be any happier with my son's over all performance , improvement since the beginning of the year at triad , and his interactions with staff and teachers! Not once did he come home complaining about difficulties with staff or any teacher , no problems or issues with ANYONE! I LOVE THIS SCHOOL , AND IT HAS BEEN A LAST CHANCE BLESSING FOR HIM AND HIS PARENTS! ALL my son did was complain about his previous school .....no one is willing to work with students like they do at this school , he had one mentor teacher that was awesome at Brookside , but this school is full of teachers like that one he had ....he went from failing to an c average , and he worked at it hard to get those grades up! Thank you Miss King , Mr. MARQUE , HEATHER , Miss Marty , and last but not least his ever so sweet and awesome math teacher , and the lunch staff who had my picky eating son eating school lunch which is something he never would eat at any of his two previous schools! Lol AS a parent , I was very pleased and relieved at the outcome of my sons time at triad .....both academically , and behavior wise!
