  • Disabilities Rights Violations. Best way to describe this school. My daughter has a certified LD and the school fights us on a weekly basis to give her accommodations. She is supposed to have her test read to her, the state of NC has said this is the way it is supposed to be, and the teachers refuse to honor it. Avoid this school.

    And the VP chews tobacco in the dugout of baseball games. Drug free campus?
