Edward Hynes Charter School Reviews

Not a good school for kids with any special needs

Reviewed on

The teacher to student ratio is not accurate at all.  My grandson (who has a speech impediment and mild learning disability) is in a class with 27 other students.  Because of these issues, he is a constant target for bullies.  He is supposed to be getting federally imposed accommodations for his disability, but is not getting them.  Also, with the full on implementation of Common Core standards at this school, kids (at least in my grandson's class) are starting to have problems keeping up with things in class.  We, as a family, have decided to take him out of Hynes...not a good fit.
