    The teachers spent a lot of time with my child helping assist with his learning disability . I moved to this area for the lower cost of living and hesitated from all the locals putting down the school systems. My child states teachers and staff are always available if needed. It seems as if the problem is that the families the children go home to could care less if there child moves on or does well in school. One student actually encouraged my child to do bad in classes so he can get free college after school !! Is that not unbelievable or what ? Parents seen to not have any involvement with schooling and then turn and blame it on every one else but themselves !! It's time we all stand up and realize teachers are not here to raise our children it's our faults for our children failing and the sooner we all accept responsibility for our actions the sooner we as a community will prosper. You could take the students and put them in Canfield schools and they still would perform poorly if not worse. I for one feel as if Youngstown far exceeded my expectations and feel as if it's the families that failed ! Shame on us parents it's our responsibility for our children

    The word school is being poorly used in this instance. More like babysitting unruly preteen is more like it. There is no disipline to be heard of teachers are screaming at kids throwing items across the room at them kids are being disruptive and nothing being done. My child went from a straight A report card to D's and F's. There is no teaching being done there and heaven forbid that you be the minority there. You are now the brunt of all hazing and harrassment from the other kids. Nice building but that is the only thing worth a positive comment there. And Parents are NOT encouraged to particiate within the school.

    In the 2 years my child has been a student at Volney I have found the teaching staff outstanding and willing to go the extra mile to help any student who wants help. The extracurricular activities are numerous and varied. Any child can find something that interests them. As far as the administration in this school I have had very positive experiences. Any problem has been met with a willingness to reach resolution that was satisfactory to everyone involved. I feel the environment promotes learning respect and discipline.

    The school has significant benefits and deficits. While most of the teachers are highly qualified invested educators with integrity too many of them are questionable at best and seem to keep thier jobs more from vestiture than from ability to teach. Administration is aggressive and unprofessional. They humiliate students and have no use for parental involvement or interferance. The environment is violent and very little is done to manage disciplinary issues to protect students and staff. Academic expectations are very low priority and federal testing assesments are grossly inaccurate. Curriculum and grades are determined indiscriminately and communication is minimal if not non-existent. It is difficult to remove students from school without facing 'legal' implications. My student's civil rights are commonly violated.
