This is my school (2010-20??) and they are NOT the worse kids! Yes, some have behavioral issues or emountional distribance or even a mixture but they are not the worst kids in the city. Try going to highland park high or spend a day at an intensive pysch-ward for children/adults, then you'll get a true idea.
As an ex-student of this school, I have to say that the teachers here do the best they possibly can in the circumstance they are put in. They have the worst of the worst students and they are there for the right reasons showing up every day to teach the most rudimentary skills and get through to those that need it most, I am one of the few success stories to come out of this school and I am proud to have known those teachers that pushed me to do my very best even when I was the one to push back just as hard; I am writing this in hindsight and hope that maybe one of those teachers will find this and know that they are changing lives every day in innovative ways that leave lasting impressions.
