    I notice that the negative review that I gave the school was taken down. Why? The school Temple Academy in Waterville Me. released a portion of my sons school records to the Bangor Daily News on 4-13-2010 "Dad's dispute" The school receives no federal funding so it broke no laws (FERPA) but would you really want your child in a school that would place your child's privacy right at risk. We intrust our children to educators but need to hold them to standards as a public school when it comes to the child's safety.

    My brother went there and is the student the person below is referring to. Not only was a part of his private school record released in a news article but he was expelled in a student assembly with the high school student body present. He was dismissed with only one day notice and when I say he did nothing wrong I mean he did nothing wrong! The school and some are very vindictive looking only to satisfy their agenda. NOT IMPRESSED

I miss my family their and they told me that their will always be a special place for me their I miss the teachers the people the food and the feeling of just being in a safe enviornment. When I have kids I will defenitly send them here.
