    Youth Opportunities Unlimited is a very unique school and it gives the students a second chance that regular school don't give.This school will help students if the students are willing. Everything about this school is great except for certain staff members that don't care about the students and constantly put them down with negativity. The principal talk negative to the students and does not care to much for them. The office staff are all women and all they do is gossip and talk and tell the students business. The assistant principal is sometimie.You have to catch the assistant principal on a good day to be able to tolerate her. The Dean should be the principal.Then maybe the students would act right.Instead of lifting the students the principal tear them down with his negative words speeches and comments to them.
