I have not been on this site for many months. This is because
we are completely comfortable with his TBS, Hidden Lake Academy,
and with his progress there.
Our son has been there since last February, almost a year. He
is nurtured, well-counseled, and is receiving a good education
in his senior year. We have never questioned the motives, sincerity,
or caring of the primary staff at this school.
Have there been problems? A few, but similar to what you experience
with any school.
In 2006, disgruntled parents filed a lawsuit which I understand
primarily complains of unqualified staff. Mind you, they let
their child graduate before they filed suit. Remember that anyone
can sue for anything and say anything they wish in the suit or
on the internet. It does not mean it's true.
This suit has reduced admissions and could threaten the life
of this school. What a travesty that would be for those of us
who have children there who are thriving and those who need a
school like this.
My husband and I are both lawyers and I am also an RN. We are
credible people, cautious, concerned, and involved. Please feel
free to contact me privately if you would like to talk about
HLA from a parent's perspective. I have no respect for people
who file suit for selfish motives. These people certainly are
not thinking of those students who are thriving there or those
that need just such care.
