My Daughter started this school during the middle of her 8th grade year. She was struggling with middle school and was going to be held back in 8th grade if she did not pull her grades up. She was making F's in every subject. Since starting Triad she has improved not only in her grades but her self esteem and attitude have gotten alot better. She finished last year's report card at Triad with three A's and three B's. I could not have been happier. This school is for a child who needs to be in a structured hands on class room. The teachers and counslors are great and they do a great job with keeping your child on track and the parent informed. My daughter is now starting her 9th grade year at Triad and is doing very well. I am a please parent!
