Excelsior Youth Center Reviews
I think the school is one of the poorest in the country in terms of educating students. They watch movies in the classroom far too often and I am not talking about educational ones, but cartoons and ridiculous soap-opera type films. The teachers are often not even licensed in Colorado, but they are still allowed to be in charge of the classroom. They had one person who used to work in the cafeteria in charge of a class and I don't think she even had a college degree. Students have been sexually inappropriate in the class, touching each other and kissing and teachers don't even see it. They also had a girl cut her wrists in the auditorium bathroom while a teacher was supposed to be supervising. Girls don't get homework and usually don't even use textbooks for class. I am sure that if you compared the girls who graduate from Excelsior with the average 5th graders, the elementary school kids would be better in every subject area.
