This school has poor academics, cannot handle kids who have troubles or are badly behaved. There are some people it works for but is hungry for money and will take anyone who can write the check. They promise everything and deliver very little. All the things you send your kid there to get away from are rampant. Drugs, alcohol, etc. are available on a thriving black market there.
They expel kids who are causing trouble there sometimes (not much consistency). However, they seem to wait until the parents have paid the tuition prior to doing so. I was informed of my son's expulsion from someone who left a phone message telling me that (real professional) who was virtually giggling as he left his message.
Then they refuse to refund the tuition, with their only justification being that they can. When I asked for a refund Mr. Wick told me he would present my request to the Board of Directors but thought they might object. Sensing his insincerity I sent him an email several weeks later reminding him of our conversation and asking for contact info for board members so I might state my case directly to them. I never heard a word from him.
Bottom line, they will promise you anything to get your money (Mr. Wick told me "I guarantee if your son spends a year here his behavior will improve") and kick you to the curb if things don't work out. There is no exit plan, no recommendation, just a very unprofessional call telling you they want your kid out immediately. Your kid will get an inferior education there and be exposed to all the bad influences you worry about.
