I live in Va., I have visited this school twice, because my grandchild "currently" is enrolled. This school is a Zoo! I was in the office for 2 hours. 8 to10 am. I saw more children come there late than I had ever seen in my life when my children were in elem. school. One child you could hear screaming over the walkies, whoever was on the other end was saying call the mother, call the mother!! The parents look like they had just pulled themselves out of bed, some even look like they were under the influence, standing there making up excuses as to why their poor child was late, again! The police make regular trips back and forth to the school. In just the two hours I was present, the police came because a student could not contain themselves or the staff could not handle the student. When I was leaving, a fire truck and an ambulance had arrived and someone came out strapped to the bed. Again, this is not my first time visiting this school. Oh, and the front office staff, they speak very sweetly, with a condescending tone. In Va. I have only seen the high school's having to call the police, not elem., schools. Thank God my grandchild is an honor student, but for how long?!
