The Storm King School Reviews
As SKS parents, we feel that we have done the right thing — we have a happy student! Our kid is thriving academically, creatively, and spiritually. The school offers a rich bouquet of opportunities for our child to discover. Studying is always an effort — but at SKS, the teachers encourage students to take the lead and make their own success. By design the learning curve is steep, but the rewards are great. I heartily recommend Storm King School to prospective students and their families.
However my experience was completely ruined by the people who ran the school. There was no support for international students boarding. Unless you're a rich chinese student, the ADM make no effort to understand cultural differences and help you adapt to the new environment . They don’t seem to care that you’re a minor away from home, missing your family and with no one else to turn to.
My mom’s emails and questions were ignored. I was screamed at, and called my mom completely desperate and in tears more times than I can count, which contributed to my depression getting much worse (the nurses were also insensible and mean).
I literally still have nightmares with my experience.
I wasn’t the only one with this experience either. Listen to the low rating comments, they tell the truth.
