I was a student at this school in the late 80's. It seems nothing has changed. Some of the children are from the group home Cleveland Christian Home for Children. I was one of them. We were able to get away with pretty much anything. I honestly don't remember learning much of anything from this school. Sounds like things never changed. Please do NOT send your children here.

do anything you have to but heep your kids out of this dump!! my kids wore the school unifoms just like the rules state but many of the other kids didnt .the staff would say its ok for them the parents cant afford it .we couldnt afford it either but if they didnt have the uniform they get sent home.the teachers were mostly incompetent they seemed to be waiting for better offers.the principle seems to change yearly i feel sorry for some of the kids there with this kind of education base the future looks dim for them.
i had two children attend this school for a few it was an absolute nightmare the lunch staff treated the children like they were prisoners (though some of them certainly will be an a few short years) any problem we had the school staff acted like it was no big deal.we even had a teacher there tell us it was the worst school she had ever been at and suggested we try to get our kids out asap.we did now the chilren attend a school in north olmsted its amazing to see the difference in the childrens performance attitude and overall happiness.thats the result of not letting the school turn into a ghetto babysitter.
My daughter's classmate pulled her belt off and said she was going to strangle my daughter and the school and the district did nothing. I am so disappointed in the district and the way they handle this sort of thing I will just continue to pray about getting her out of the district and into a better school.
My children went to this school for 4 years and never once could I complain. Great school!
