Outstanding School with hard working staff
I have had many interactions with this school and I must say I am very impressed. The students that attend this school have usually exhausted all other placements prior to coming there, due to extreme acting out behaviors, that most schools are ill-equipped to handle. However, the leadership and teaching staff are top-knotch here. They work long hours and put the extra mile in to make sure that ALL the students are well-educated and safe. I would highly recommend you give this school a look if your son/daughter is just not cutting it in their current school.
If this is the direction that Grand Rapids Public Schools is heading, then 2 thumbs up, WAY UP!
This school allowes others a 17 year old to injure your child where my child had to go to the hospital for just saying to a nother student to stop calling a girl and others in the class name that where nasty words and because my son repeated the names he has to be the wrong person, what is wrong with are schhools in grand rapids and the staff that runs them..............
