School Reviews

  • Recommended January 17, 2015 - I honestly do not like this school. Students are rude to my daughter all the time. They have very strict rules in the code of conduct like how students can't dye their hair certain colors. And students can't wear tank tops, i understand not the thin ones but not even a muscle top will please them. What do you want my kid to do? Where a turtleneck when it's 70 degrees outside? And they have this thing my daughter tells me about and it's called the one way hallway. And that makes her late for class and she gets in trouble for it. She said it is supposed to stop fights but it seems like everyday there is a fight. And at that school you can't do self-defense. That makes no sense. If my child gets hit on i will expect her to fight back. But no she would get suspened, a ticket, and a court date. Do these people want my daughter to get hurt without defending? Also they let students come to school when it's more than 20 below zero. Why does other schools take the day off but that school doesn't. I am very unhappy with this school. I wish i can switch her to different schools. - Posted by Parent
