The Head of School and the Head of the Upper School are grossly overpaid and incompetent. The dictatorial management of this school keeps the faculty in a constant state of turmoil and fear. This school is representative of what is wrong with Memphis, and I would not send my daughter to this school by any means, nor would I ever consider giving any money to this organization for any reason.

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

Teaching

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

Fire the head of school and the the Board of Trustees

Hutchison School is one of the best things about Memphis. The teachers go to great lengths to support their students and to work with parents to make the most of each girl's educational experience. Whenever I have (rarely)had a concern in the past, it was handled with the utmost of professionalism and care. I trust this school with my daughter's formative years - that says it all.

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

the education of my child.

I was involved with Hutchison for many years in many positions; the level of professionalism, and attention to detail is what allows this institution to be in the forefront of the academic and athletic community. This instution has prided itself on being not just a school, but a all-inclusive community; an idea that was fostered by the Head of School and an idea that is present in every faculty and staff member on the campus.

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

This is a dynamic institution with excellent Faculty, Staff and Parents. Each member of the Faculty and Staff is involved in the nuturing process of each student. The Head of School empowers each of her staff members to be their best.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The joy and excitement on each student's face; the students want to be here everyday eager to learn.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated individuals who give of their time and talents to each student.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand the greatness of this institution even more!

This private girl’s school is financially mismanaged. The experienced staff is routinely abused by a Head of school who is incompetent and extremely volatile. Faculty and staff fear for their jobs, students are unhappy, there is little diversity; and parents of students prefer to keep the school not as an institution for learning, but rather social advancement. Further the Head of school is grossly overpaid, especially in comparison with the salaries of leaders of leading academic institutions in the region. DO NOT Donate.

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

the lack of curiosity in its students

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

Make the focus of this institution learning.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with certain colleagues.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

overburdened, fearful, exhausted.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be a first rate institution of learning, if fiscally well managed

Ways to make it better...

A new Head of School was hired

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the Head of School.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Do not send your daughter to this school, and do not donate
