i don't think that schol is recommended for no parents because of the abuse and neglect that the students endure from the staff. they are always talking about how the children are but it is the staff as well because if they come in with a positive attitude then they will get that feed back in return. these are young adults so lets start treating them like that. my child and no other child should have to endure abuse especially if they are trying to escape it from home and have to come to school and get the same treatment.
