How this school is still open and not under constant scrutiny is everything wrong with how money gets spent in education. If ever there was a place that was in need of an audit it is Hawthorne Academy. The students are walking dollar signs to the owner, who hides in his office and leaves the lack of structure up to an inept administration. The children rule the school, which is just as well because there is no curriculum outside of what I guess are books that are donated from other schools when they get too old.

This school offers very good incentives for their students to attend school. Many of the students that attend this school do not do so willingly, but are ordered to do so by the courts and over time many do show that they want to go to school. Over the past year and a half there has been some improvements and the behavior of the students seems to be getting better. I think considering the population, this school does pretty well at trying to give the students an education.

After one year of having my child attend this school all i can say is that this school is joke. They hardly assign any work and none of which is challenging to the students, students wonder the hallways aimlessly without any redirection, and the Dean has his own agenda focused on money he receives from each kid. They do not motivate students to strive to do better but rather reinforce their complacency. I do not recommend this non-public school to anyone.
