My cousin currently attends this High School, I have heard nothing but complaints from her parents about the staff and faculty there. In fact, just recently she was sexually harrased by 2 fellow students there, she plans on going to the office with her parents tomorrow to take care of this. However it shouldn't have gotten this far, her high school should have an adult figure at every corner of the school, and she says that they only have them walking halls every now and then. This isn't the first issue she has had at Maiden either. I have heard nothing but bad things about this school.
