I am sorry you had a poor experience. I do not find much truth in your review. Since recess is only 10 minutes long, students don't miss much if they are kept in. They are only kept in for habitual absence and/or too little completed work to give the student a grade. And, I believe the medication issue is only recommended after CAREFUL consideration.
Wrote the Jan 2008 review during the honeymoon period. Since then we moved to another school district because of the difficulty of dealing with a policy of keeping children from recess because of academic failings. The administration was quick to suggest for some who needed physical outlets that they be put on medication thereby increasing the school's funding for special need children. This is a school to be avoided at all costs.
