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.
