former student here. in all my years of inpatient treatment this was the most traumatizing. verbal abuse you were punished and demonized over the smallest things. despite being told you could leave whenever when you were 18 theyd do anything to keep you there longer just to make an extra buck or two. underqualified staff the quiet room where youd be locked up in for the most minor inconvinces and the favoritism - if youre a parent considering sending your kid here coming from a survivor of this school please dont. and if youre a child considering going i advise against it for your own well-being.

Went there 1990 to 1996. Had my up and downs but I did like it there. Seeing the map I can see it has changed a lot. I do want to say that one of the staff members where wrong about me when they said Ill end up in Prison. I never been arrested once most I got was a ticket for sitting in the park after dark. Lmao.

Hiring personnel are very age discriminating. No teaching experience by same person. All lip service they do not practice what they preach. All B.S.

terrible school. rumors of abuse. teachers are cold and heartless and dont teach much. favored students get treated like celebs and get the rules to bend to their will and forget the unfavorable students. if you are a student you are nothing more than a cash cow for this school. if you attempt to leave or drop out they will fight tooth and nail to keep you from leaving so they get their money and for no other reason. they made my life miserable and they knew it while they attempted to keep me enrolled for the money. they inflicted irreparable harm on me that i cant escape to this day. if you care about your child and you care about yourself dont send yoyr child here and if want to be a student here please reconsider for your safety.
