    Sadly this school is a dumping ground/ penalty box for FFHS inorder for it to increase the state ranking for FFHS. The Dare County Board and the principal of FFHS should be ashamed of the way they condemn/force these children into failure. First time offenders have been sent here and their futures destroyed.
