Don't believe the hype! Don't get me wrong they ideas of what they as an administration is trying to offer is great. But the concept does not work for everyone involved. Their No Tolerances Agenda is worst than the Penal System. They are trying to accomplish being a school full of preteen & teenage boys into one building have them conduct themselves as if they have gone to boot camp before stepping onto the grounds of Tindley. It's not ideal and today the way kids are & have to deal with they are not address their needs nor their issues that they maybe facing as a young man. They are quick to suspend the student for days at most 20 days at one time for one incident. It seems a little extreme too me. The communication their needs vast improve me. They don't follow their own rules to govern themselves as an administration but yet they pride themselves for being role models to the boys when it comes to being responsible & a man of their word. It's a set up for failure because if the student is out of school due the vast majority of suspension for petty things such as name calling they are NOT learning and therefore will fail there and other areas of life.
