This school is the worst school ever! Absolutely no communication with the parents. They can't handle any small situation.

My son is attending Journeys Academy and has been for the last two years. He is an ESE student and they do not follow his IEP. He has tried to raise his hand and ask only to be kicked out of his class. When this happens he's given a referral. I've left messages for his teachers, I've left messages for his counselor only to get a call back from discipline when he gets another referral. My son isn't allowed to dress down like other students because of these referrals but states if you are nice to people you don't have to worry about it. I can't believe Seminole County still lets this school operate the way it does. They should be trying to help some of these students. I hope my son gets to transition. But he doesn't believe he will because he was told by other kids that if they don't like you, you have to stay. This is just sad.

This school is not at all good they constantly pick with the kids to keep them there some of the staff are very rude.the teachers don't teach these kids nothing that's why I'm only giving one star. They really need to do better!!!!!!

This place houses the worst of the worst. The kids that go there have no place in normal schools. The kids that get sent to journeys are the kids who can not. Survive in normal society. These kids belong there. Its just the last stop before the graduate and go to prison.

I live in a gated apartment complex in winter springs and there are 3 kids from journeys and they are a constant problem. Just about everyone knows about journeys. Its a prison prep school. If there are kids there without records its simply because they havent been pinched yet. This school houses the worst of the worst. If you think your kids there for poor grades then its obvious you are the reason there there.

My children did not attend the school. But last year students from journeys were allowed to attend winter springs hs. There were fights taking place almost everyday. These students should not be allowed to attend schools in better areas. It's not a building that gets a bad grade it's the people in it. Some people might get offended but I'm speaking what many are thinking. Obviously journeys does not have the best of students according to its ratings and what just a few of those students were turning winter springs hs into.

im currently going to this school and it has just been worse of an influence on me this school is very strict and i hate it

Not every child that goes to Journey's have an arrest record or have a behavior problem. My son had a Math deficiency and the teacher did not know how to help him so she started a behavioral paper trail which ended up in referrals and suspensions. It caused him to lose hope because of the many times he missed instruction causing him to receive F's in all of his classes. He ended up in a fight because of a negative comment made by a student about his grades. My son is now a B student because the majority of the teachers and staff at Journeys cared about his academics and his life as a male; especially his Math teachers. This experience gave him a whole new outlook on life and his future. If your child is not headed in the right direction, and want to do better, Journeys is a good choice. It might be that there may be a negative in one child, but that negative may bring out the positive in your child and cause him/her to want to do better.

This school is a last resort for students that have been deemed by teachers, administrators and a member of the school board to not be able to behave properly in general population. For the students that go here and parents that children end up here, wake up. The signs were on the wall. Students that attend this school are expelled for a reason. Most have arrest records and behavior problems. I know from personal experience volunteering with the students at this school. The teachers are very educated, some have PhD, Masters and even former administrators. These children are here for a reason and need to be taught lessons with zero tolerance. They can adjust fine to general population, especially if the parents wise up and admit that it is the child and there fault. Stop blaming others and focus on your family and you will see success. Students don't end up here for no reason.

my son will be attending this school, and i'm not very happy about it, this is his first time ever getting in trouble, he is a good kid, this is his first year in high school, i feel this will bring his grades down, i hear so many bad things about this school, they better hope nothing happens to my son.
