My son has attended Bending Oaks since the beginning of the 2007 school year. He previously hated school and was certainly not a model student. Having now spent 12 weeks at Bending Oaks he enjoys going to school, is applying himself to his work during class and his behavior is, overall, reflecting a complete change of attitude to school. From a parents perspective I was concerned about the lack of homework that is given, however, the small sizes of the classes equate to fairly intense learning and my son utilizes his free time before school and during breaks to manage any homework that is given. It is a small community which means all the teachers are aware of each student's strengths and weaknesses and they manage my son well. I am very happy with Bending Oaks High School.
As our son tells us, Bending Oaks 'is the best school in the whole world.' Everything about the school works for him. He is getting a better education than he was receiving in the public school. The smaller class size and school atmosphere make it work for him. We get to visit with each one of his teachers in person every six weeks. The administrator is always available to speak with us when we call. We are so glad we found Bending Oaks High School!
I sent my son at Bending Oaks and his progress has not improved. I had to complain to the Administrator about certain teachers. My son also complained about the students at Bending Oaks. I addressed the problem with the administrator and nothing was done for 4 months. The bottom line was I spent $13,000 dollars and at the end of the school year. I decided not to enroll him at Bending Oaks again.
