    My son (16) was homeschooled until the 2008 second semester. His father and grandmother died very close together. He felt that going to public school would help him to recover from his grief so we enrolled in Bunn High School. The whole staff was very gracious and understanding of our situation. To make a long story short my son has excelled at Bunn High thanks to the wonderful staff and teachers.
