I just want to say how greatful I am for my son to be going to Druid Hill. I removed my son from another school after one quarter this year and enrolled him at Druid Hill and that has to be the best move we made. At the prior school they pretty much labled my son as a behavior child and gave up on him after a few weeks of school starting. My son is being seen for some medical problems, but the other school chose not to work him. With him being here at Druid Hill his teacher Ms Duffy has been ever so patient with him and worked with him along with many others there at the school. I can tell a change already in my son and can see a brighter future for him now.
