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

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
