    I went there when I was younger. Back in the 1990's. They treated us like we were idiots. Not just kids who had anger issues. I did pre algebra in sixth grade but when I was there in ninth grade I was doing basic math. I was never able to catch back up after being there for a few years. I just gave up after that. All they do is make you wanna be bad. The consequences for doing bad stuff was nothing. So why wouldn't you if you could get away with it? I didn't like the school and once in they make it almost impossible to get out.

    I believe that the merging of elementary aged children with high school aged children is detrimental to the safety and emotional well being of the elementary children. I don't always feel that my son is truly safe while attending Calvin Hunsinger and feel that the school is more of a monarchy than a democracy that is open to the opinions of the parent.
