School Reviews

  • Recommended November 23, 2009 - This school is as close to a prison as a school can be. The staff are incredibly harsh and my daughter was yelled at because she dropped her books. There's a camera in every hall, students have to walk and march in order as if it were a prison camp. Students aren't allowed to drink except at set time. My girlfriend has been banned from wearing most shirts because of her large bust. If students make any mistakes in gym they force that student to do exercises specifically designed to leave the child sore for days to come, every day for at least a week, more than once my daughter has been reduced to tears in gym. She has also been threatened with being paddled by one teacher, this is just unacceptable, I spank my daughter when need be, but I don't threaten to paddle her in front of her friends for little to no reason. There is a boy I spoke to there who I know has been to Juvie, but he claims there's more freedom and it's more enjoyable in Juvie than this school. I have taken my daughter out of schooling and she is being homeschooled now, I was stupid to ever let her come to this school. Put simply this is the worst school I've ever seen. It's a prison, not a school - Posted by Parent
