This is a residential facility designated for adolescents that struggle with various emotional and behavioral disturbances. Please, do not send your child here. I was a "student" at this "school" and the trauma I endured here was horrific. The guidelines state that I'm not allowed to alledge any criminal conduct on this review, but hopefully I'm making it clear that this is not a suitable environment for children, especially girls.
Germaine Lawrence was an accredited school, but yet I have sat in on a class there and was very upset at the lack of learning that occured. My occupation is a teacher at alternative high schools and this school was worse than the schools I taught at in both education and tolerance. I would strongly suggest sending your child to Arlington High nearby.
First of all I want to say that I'm not a parent but I went to this school. the teachers were great and I enjoyed going to shcool there. when I went to this school my teacher was Rebecca Altepeter. she was really suportive and challenge me. I have to say that she was one of the most influential people in my life.
