Halstrom Academy-San Diego1

Be very careful with this school. Though it may be satisfactory for some students, the most important thing to remember is that the number one goal of the school is to make a profit, NOT to assist your child. The communication level at the school is extremely disappointing despite promises to the contrary. I was not notified of the necessity of extra classes for my student until I supposedly owed a significant amount of money. Then the administration, all the way up to the CEO of Futures in Education, the parent company for Halstrom, did their very best to ignore and dismiss my phone calls. Again, just be very careful with this school and do not expect them to put your child first even though you are paying exorbitant amounts of money to them. This school appears to be particularly ill suited to students that are not completely self-motivated and on task even though the administration promises otherwise. Which if your student can be described that way, why pay the ridiculous prices of Halstrom when there are plenty of free options available?
