  • I find fault with the disclosure of student
    information from Providence to the
    public system; that which would be classifed as "private". I'm not so much in favor of the school having 24 hr. discipline over a child but that's the way it seems to work; contract system. However, I find a lot wrong with their divulging private information from their office into the public school system in regards to discipline, etc. That s/b against their policies and the law! I thought it was suppose to be a school with Christian ethics. So, do you continue to kick a student when they get down? That "Christianship" is a falsehood which is just advertisement.
    Whomever commited suich an act of privacy disclosure s/b dismissed. In my opinion, it is in the same regard of one
    going to a doctor or lawyer and their
    disclosing your medical history.

  • This school is dominated by nepotism and staff with degrees other than education. They pride themselves with increasing and adding dues, funds, and fees without regard of parents of attending students. If you are not well known socially and do not contribute a great amount financially, do not expect to feel part of the "family".
