Mcquade Children's Services/the Kaplan School Reviews
I was there in the 70s and there was a lot of good people that cared for the kids it is a shame it was closed for the reasons that it did many good memories of the staff and the other kids who did not have severe problems we even took a trip to Wasington DC
it is proble all about sex and i need practice
Look, there is no question that this school is a gap-stop for at-risk youths and it is absolute rubbish to say this schools didn't help their students.
At the age of 12 my mother abandoned me and over the next few years I would learn how to read, write and express myself by attending the McQuade Foundation school.
Are there fights? Rude kids? Anger issues? Of course, but I challenge anyone to show us a school that doesn't struggle with much the same.
Bottom line, today I am a writer, and the foundation I received to do that, well... it was all taught to me at this school.
i personally didn't like the school but, and i'm glad that it is shut down...
I for one are quite happy as a former student to hear of Mcquade's children services school in new windsor NY closing down of course i was one person who made an anonymous report about the school to the health department. more then (seven years) after my mother signed me out. the school does not take proper responsibilities and mesures for the safety of the students, One of the things i pointed out was that teachers allow students to voluntary leave class. and seem not to bother caring where they was going, Second was the lack of discipline the teacher had when students harm another student example (when i was 17, another student slammed my head against the side of a school desk.) the teacher's repond are you okey? the student was put in a timeout room for 5-10 mintues as punishment. now what if i got seroisly hurt? the students there seem to think they can do whatever they want, in gym class a student hit me in the back of my head with a basketball the gym teacher seem not to care but ignored me. i went school there from (2001-2004) half of the time which i can say most i didin't bother getting up and going to school but skipped all together, oh not to mention since when is it professional for a school nurse to spread Rumors that a (student) me had headlice to other students and teachers? and since when is it professional for a bus driver to tell other students on a bus not to sit by me because i supposedly had headlice? it is against school policy to give student information out. and other health issues, not to mention teacher-student sexual behavior, the two teachers having a party with two students which is inappropriate behavior (the students lived at the school) basically that is why i reported the school which i wasen't the only one.
