  • I had the pleasure of visiting the school this week. Unfortunately d/t my granddaughter behavior, so they say. Upon speaking to the gentlemen that was supposedly scaring her straight. I never heard not one thing encouraging. I only heard gloom and doom from this fellow. He was so rude I really don't even know his name. His info was the bathroom are lock;their only allowed to use the bathroom once a day. Nothing else, surely this school has more to it than this. Or I am really assuming that you just house the children everyday to let them get behind in school and be out of the way of the teachers. I heard nothing about a lesson plans there or a plan of correction for the students. I ask the gentlemen was all grades together, he stated no, the 7th and other grades are separated. That is not true. I've heard they are allowed to sleep and do nothing If they choice. Are there any counselors there. Why are they not in school all day, since this is suppose to be a turning point for the students. If I walk in the school today and ask for a lesson plan to see how you could help the student, could you produce one? What's really going on there? Are the teachers and staff there just using tax papers money but not concern about the student and why they are there? And no my granddaughter is not going to this school, she has some things she has to work on. And a promising future to look forward to as I would hope the student at this school has also.
