School Reviews

The school has had a SERIOUS drug problem that has been consistently swept under the carpet OR OUT THE DOOR for the past four years. When the resource officer and the faculty begin to DEAL WITH THE DRUG DEALERS at the correct level ~ they may have fewer drop outs~ Zero Tolerance policy is not meant to weed out the weed smokers condemning them to a bleak outlook with no where left for educational opportunities than POINTE The system is broken and Theodore is partially to blame
