Bethune Academy Reviews

By a Parent on

This school has become horrific!!  When I enrolled my daughter here, I was very pleased for the first few years.  Now the only way to get a response from the staff is to demand it!  I was at the school for two days trying to talk to a staff member about a fight involving my daughter.  One of the administrators told me that she didn't have time to talk to me.  Once I cursed her out to the point where security needed to move me away from her, I was able to speak with the principal.  It's sad that this is the only way to get the attention of an adult "leader" after there's been a fight.
The children rarely get homework and they're not allowed to bring their books home.  If there's something going on at the school, you won't get notice until the day before the event.
I can't take it anymore.  This is my daughter's last year here.
