Robert Moton houses the elementary BEST program which is a behavioral program designed for emotionally disturbed children. The staff is not fully qualified to deal with most of the situations and the regular Ed students suffer the effects of the kids' bad behavior. It can be a scary place! Some of these kids need more psychological intervention that can only be given by more advanced therapy!
