I am new to Right Step. My son will be attending the new semester. However, I am nervous, as to all the different stories, but I'm willing to give the school a fair chance to help me help my son get back on track. MPS does not seem to care and I want o save my son before it's too late. So I'm eager, nervous, not excited, but ready!
Im mad..my 12 year old daughter was bullied at boot camp and it continued on wit cyberbullying.she was followed home by at least 15 teens ranging from 13-18 years of age..they got off on her bus stop and jumped her..I went to the school the next day and Mr.Holly said there was nothing he could do.that it was a police issue.I asked what he was going to do to ensure my daughter's safety in the future.he said he wasn't trying to dismiss me but he had 1000 things to do and I was now his 1001.he passed me on to SGT. Billings who was no help either.she said this type of stuff has happened every year.im n total disbelief..why dont they make sure your kids are safe..sounds like to me they are in it for a paycheck.
I am a parent of a student that attends "RIGHT STEP" Im very impressed with this school!! these teachers and Drill SGT. really care about the children that other schools just pass along because of many different issues the children are going though. i really feel that this school should get more funding than public school because these men and women have to deal with issues that that regular schools would simply toss the child out of school without a second thought!! I know first hand. I really appreciate SGT. Billings and the rest of the staff for helping me get my daughter back on the "RIGHT TRACK" SOME VIEW THIS TYPE OF SCHOOL AS A PUNISHMENT BUT I SEE THIS SCHOOL AS A MUCH NEEDED HELPING HAND!!! THANK U ALL AGAIN!! S MATHEWS
Im at this school now and I like it I just dont like when a kid gets in trouble we all get in trouble and I think they should give us more class time but other then that this school is great I have been bullied for a long time but Drill sargent Alicia helps me out with that he never knew until something happened with me that was very showable so did drill sargent Gomez and Mr.Holy well the whole point is they really care about no matter how tuff they are on you so do the teachers I love all my teachers they are very helpful and caring I Love This School This Is Jazmin Martinez Rios and I go to Right Step 2012 December 11 6:24 PM
Right Step Is The Best School Ive Gone To So Far. I Been There 2 Years &+ They Have Helped Me SOO Much. Ive Chanqed My Life In A Way &+ They Helped Me To Stop Doinq Thinqs That Would Get Me In Trouble. People Think Its A Bad School Because The Dril Sqts Are A Lil Touqh On Us But What People Fail To See Is That They NEED To Be Touqh To Chanqe Us Around &+ Show Us Were Not Grown &+ That Thinqs We're Doinq Are Sendinq Us Down The Wronq Road. Its Called Touqh Love Which Is What Some Parents Are Too Weak To Give Which Allows Their Kids To Run All Over Them &+ Start To Do Whatever They Want &+ Get Themselves In Trouble. I Dont See Anythinq Wronq With Riqht Step. Its The Best School. Like I Said Before. &+ People Complain That We Learn D &+ C And Marchinq But Whats Bad About It.?? Its Teachinq Us Somethinq New. I Dont Get Why People Think Its Wronq That Those Drill Serqeants Want To Help The Troubled Youth From Stayinq Out Of Trouble &+ Beinq Safe. They Just Care &+ Dont Wanna See Us Do Somethinq We're Gonna Reqret &+ Either End Up Behind Bars Or Six Feet Under. They're Tryna Protect Us From The World We're Not Ready For No Matter How Much We Think We Are. I Love That School. Marilena C.
I was a former student of Right Step, Inc, as a Junior 2008. At first I thought it was good and fun in which so did my 2 younger brothers and my 2 cousins too, but as the year went on I began to realize that neither me nor my brothers belonged there. We weren't like the other kids or our cousins, but we ended up there because we got some bad grades. I was hardworking as far as anything else but in all honesty I didn't like this school much. This school only taught me military stuff such as a few cadences, DnC, and execises, academically this school screwed me up for graduation. I had some good times here as did my family, but we had more bad times than good.My Drill Sergeants, most of them, were cool. I' m Fabian a.k.a. 'Psychokiller,' and i attended thismy
In all the hard work Right Step has put me through has thought me that life has way more then just drugs and gangs. It has changed me completely around . It thought me the value of life and love. I have been there for 3 years and i dont regret not one moment of it. Its all i looked for in a school. Thank you Right Step staff. I have made friends and family ther that will never be forgotten. Right step is my home sweet home.. I love yall Drll Sgt Aldape
