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.
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.
Hutchison School is an extraordinary community of learners dedicated to helping girls develop into exceptional young women and citizens of the world.
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.
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.
