Review for Hutchison School, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

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.

working with certain colleagues.

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

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

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
