This is from a grandparent. My grandson is so happy (so far) after being at Hurley School. He said he couldn't talk anytime there, but at West he can. Little things like being able to chew gum and have his cell phone are like rewards. No complaints yet. He even wants to get to school early to have breakfast. So glad he was able to transfer there where he has friends. Thank you!
