Drop out recovery school. Defoe racists-how could a school be 75 percent middle-class whites girls in downtown Toledo and NOT be racist?! NO college prep here- no AP no IB no true honors classes. Don't be fooled by marketing. This is the commodification of education. Ran like a mega-church.

Poor administration. Head of the school who does not resign when caught being racist. Sewing teacher who is stealing donated materials. Teachers and administrators who verbally abuse students. Not a positive environment for nurturing and educating young adults.
