I see it is going to be like this. What the teacher and the parent below forgot to mention is the most important part about being present in school is actually being in the school. I think this school system has become so wrapped up in the concept of enforcing cell phone and sexist dress code policies, two things in which can be doubted in their validity in the first place, they have lost touch with the reason they are teaching. The students are here to learn. To receive a high school education. They are not here to have their electronic rights compromised. They are not here to have their individuality robbed from them. They are not here to be objectified and turned into nothing but a 6-digit number within the system. An argument that I expect will after this will be the classic Walker response of "Ya'll are just kids. You just don't like having rules in place. You will understand when you get older that the world work...-" This is untrue. Times are changing. We are the future, and we will dictate how we want our future to work. The world is not the same as it was in the 1920 when the school was built. This school is ultra-conservative, and it is not ready for the future.

What the parent complaining about her daughter's cell phone failed to mention that it is a district policy that cell phones are not allowed on campus. The school allows students to check in their phones each morning and they are kept safe all day until the student picks it up in the afternoon. What medical condition would require a student to need a phone on them all day? Students are able to go to the office and make check out requests or call home when needed. This is a great school. The rest of the other parent's rate is just as unfounded and absurd as the bit about the cell phone.

This school is absolutely horrid. My daughter has never been a bad child, and her first few months here she gets suspended. My daughter has a medical issue which she has her phone for, they in fact said it is not their fault for my daughter's problem and they cannot help her. The assistant principal is rude, and locked her in the room with him by herself. They show favoritism and children roam the halls for no reason they laugh and play. No school has ever made me hate the staff more than this one. The secretaries are mean and joke and are never doing their jobs.
