My child goes to motivation high school, the teachers are great and school is ok but I am so frustrated because of some of the rules the the principal Renu Teli has put in place. The school does not allow kids to have phones at all, even if they are not using it, it is not on. They search for phones with the medal detectors and they take it. The other day in the bad weather I could not get to pickup my child. They were outside waiting for me for hours in 5 degree weather . I had no way of reaching my child and they would not let them back in the building to use the phone. Anything could of happen to them out there. In that neighborhood you can't even find a pay phone. This principal is playing with kids safty and I just can't take it anymore. They also have lockers that don't work and the school police take kids jackets if they have it in there hands. The problem is they sometimes can't find them and kids have gone home with out jackets in below zero weather . The police officer is so busy taking jackets instead of worrying about protecting our children

The school makes you work hard for what you want and prepares you for college they have great programs for the males and females which help you with your social and academic behavior and are associated with college prep programs which helps you even more.You learn about different cultures and even learn A Language and there are all types of clubs that you may be interested in. They give you the tools all you have to do is apply them.
