    I have had good experiences here with my two daughters. I have noticed that the administration is not too tolerant of kids with behavior problems but if you train them you won't have to worry about that. They may be a bit prejudice against minorities but consider the area. Misbehaved kids should be home schooled.

    My child also has a few behavior issues and is in the first grade here. We have switched teachers twice and no improvement. They treat my son very bad. I want to pull him but can't afford private school. The blue academy is not much better with kids that are not quiet and timid. They all need mentoring and classes. My son had no problems in Kindergarten at his old school because they knew how to deal with normal child misbehavior without blowing it up.

    I am a current 6th grader at this school. I have gone to this school for two years now . At first i was not very happy about going to this new school. But it has definatly grown on me i hace a bunch of friends. I do not love my school tho because u will get made fun of alot if u do not fit in . I would say that tge teachers are pretty averidge but if u be a bad student they will point you out and make fun of u and yell at u in front of the class. But if u are a good student u will roll along nicely.

    My two sons attend the Gold Academy and it is an excellent school! My children are all "A" students who are excited to attend school everyday. The teachers and principal are of the best in Decatur Township! no complaints here.
