    I switched my twin boys from keokuk catholic schools to Hawthorne mid year. Hawthorne is leaps and bounds ABOVE excellent!!! my twins needed seperated and the seasoned teachers made the transition seamless for my kids. It should have been my first choice. My son who was having problems at keokuk catholic no longer had behavior issues within one week of being in the hands of an experienced teacher!
