My granddaughter learned a tremendous amount from Mr. Wilkey, but was not allowed to return to this school because she wasn't in the district. Her Mother was informed of this two days prior to school starting. I have a tremendous amount of respect for the teachers I have met there, but I have no respect for the decision maker at this school.

I am excited for my Kindergartner to start John Hay! My 3rd grader has had great success the past 3 years and is excited about school. What a blessing!
