People always try to encourage you to take the easy way out and not care about anyone but yourself....even if they're sick you know they deserve to be made fun of okay how about the people that really are mentally disabled? that's cruel

People don't take it seriously unfortunately. Drugs drugs and MORE drugs...people thing it's an escape to reality but what their really doing is trying to become thug-like "Be weary of the music that enters society" - Plato

So many people are oppressed in this school. A lot of drug people go here unfortunately. Dancing in the middle of the halls. Doing drugs in the bathrooms? Have people really gotten this low? This is not the way.

Yes I've met some of the best teachers here. But even some of the teachers like to bully students. I know what the truth is. Believe it or not you are supposed to listen to these people maybe they're trying to help you. However I hate how people who fail try to get even with the world.

There is no one to talk to about your problems. Most people will smile at you but deep inside they don't really care. I hate how people try to be "heroes of justice" and put down those who are more educated than them. I'm telling you these kids are going to end up being criminals. Intelligence is shunned and ignorance is rewarded.

People make fun of people who are mentally disabled at these kinds of schools I wouldn't expect anything less to be honest.

This school has a very serious issue with bullying. If you are different or don't fit in with the "cool" kids watch out. All students don't receive the same treatment or punishments. The majority of the staff don't care and will sweep important issues under the rug. I thank god my child doesn't go there anymore! Stay away from lackawanna!

Great School to get ready to enter the real world. Teaches students to become independent and some times dependent too. But in all ways this school brightens students minds and gives them the right education!!
