First of all I wanted to start off saying this is not a school, but a business. Debra Thornby is more interested in your money than your child learning.
She will tell you a lot of stuff just to get you to sign her contracts. Only thing that is binding in that school. She does not do what she tells you she can with your child, you tell her that she did not give my child the learning I expected, and some way she will blame your child. But Debra does not care, all she wants is her money.
Most of the students are there through MaKay Scholarship. This school does not do anything to help the children. They are in front of a computer screen doing a simple computer program, that really does not teach anything.
I agree with another post, this school should be shut down! They rip you off!
Please parents explore your other options, you can find so much better than this.
This school runs by the principal's whimsy, not sound educational practice. It is not a healthy environment for learning. Her theory is that everyting and everyone in the world is clueless except her and her school.
my child has gone there for several years now started out wonderfully now not so sure that grade level work is being achived not sure of selection of new teachers he has made good friends and does not wish to leave even with not being happy with teacher.Most of the staff is wonderful.Just not sure about grade level work being achived.
Ms. Thornby and all her staff are there for one reason. Educate children. My child went into the school behind, reading at a 2nd grade level and through their hard work my child is reading at a 4th grade level in less than 6 months!
