  • my experience at candor was a nightmare. i had no support what so ever. administration is out of their minds if they think that suspending a kid for something minor is going to help them learn a lesson. it's completely ridiculous.

  • the teachers/pricipals made it virtually impossible for me to get anywhere. my experience at candor was a complete nightmare. i do not recommend that anyone go there unless there is no other choice. it is a waste of time and effort.

  • i am the most upset bc of how the staff just gives up on most students and the lack of compassion for students here not exactly the teachers but mostly the administration and a few select teachers and there is a huge amount of hostility between students and staff
