  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on August 08, 2007
  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I needed to enroll a minor that I have legal guardianship over into high school and Lancaster High School staff was very rude. The minor is staying with me and needs to go to school to receive his diploma and the staff at the high school was NO help over the phone. I had to take the matters to a higher level. district office. I should have gotten her name who DID NOT help me over the phone. She also stated over the phone that the minor was NOT welcomed to Lancaster High School.
