    Last time in my school it was time time to line up then a kid bump me out of the line and a kid was namecalling me and that school was very very bad and stupid and i never ever came to that school again and the teachers and the kids were causeing confusion and delay!

    While I'm sure this school is great regarding younger newly-diagnosed autistic children there is no interest in helping develop and nurture the needs of adolescent and teenage students. Once puberty and harder to discuss life issues come into play the school shows absolutely no interest in their integral role in their emotional/social development. They instead wait until a number of incidents "occur" (without alerting the parents and/or keeping an note of said occurrence) and insist on heavy - or heavier- medication of the student. The administration and teachers seem unwilling to do anything when they're gawky every-changing and especially hormonal. instead of trying to help the students understand that what they're feeling is natural they treat them like perverts and criminals. The mindsets of these students are juvenile and very impressionable at best so to see their indifference towards them and downright hostility is disheartening.

    This school has some major bullying issue. It's never ending at this school. If your kid doesn't follow the crowd he will be an outcaste. Sad but true. Only problem I have in this school.

    this is the school that has treated my daughter with respect when she was going thru a very rough patch in her life!!! Her self-esteem would not be at the level it is if it weren't for the teachers and kids in Slocum-Skewes!!! She is now in RMHS and doing so well...Second Honors!!!
