this school is pretty good. i have been attending since novmeber 09 and i still have the rest of the year there. and yes you can pretty much say whatever you want,but as far as 100% tolerance goes that is not the case. rules are strictly enforced. i konw for a fact,i have been going there for almost 3 months now and although i am now happy about going there it is the only choice i have because i was kicked out of my home school,so i am making the best of it.

Instead of zero tolerance this school has 100% tolerance. The only thing the school enforces is silent transition and dress code. Students have no respect for teachers, adminstrators, or school personnel because when a student is written up, nothing happens. Students will often tell teachers 'Go ahead, write me up, nothing will happen anyway.' And nothing does happen. A student who curses out a teacher oftentimes is given a warning and then will return back to class. Students will say 'I love the GIVE Center. I don't want to go back to my home school.' The reason why they love it is because they can do whatever they want and not get in trouble. The teachers are the ones who suffer for their misbehavior.
