My son was really struggling at the large public school in our neighborhood. He is very bright but was not able to focus due to the large class size. He had a lot of anxiety about going to school and was not connecting with any of his teachers. He transferred to High Bluff Academy in the beginning of 11th grade and it was the best decision we ever made. He loved all of his teachers and was inspired to work hard and get good grades. The caring, family type atmosphere was very welcoming. Although he had not excelled in math or science at previous schools, he was very inspired by his teachers at High Bluff and now he is a junior in college majoring in Microbiology and wants to go on to a PhD program and become a genetics researcher. I never would have dreamed that his life would turn around so dramatically just by changing schools. His success and self-confidence today would not have been possible without High Bluff Academy.
