Worst decision I ever made for my child.
Fork Union is more concerned about money than your child. Because it is in a small town they have trouble recruiting competent teachers. Organizationally theu are a mess because their adminstrative staff is over worked and over paid.
I had to call and email the schoo for 2 weeks in order to receive information on my child.
If you are not willing to donate large sums of money to the school you will not receive good service.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

All Departments

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire the entire staff relocate the school, and restructure the learning and discipline structure.
