R T Fisher Alternative School Reviews

By a Parent on

Well my opinion is this school is like a prison military boot camp.My child is going there and denied the right to go to a restroom by two teachers when the restroom is right there. It's bullcrap what these children have to put up with. I know they got into trouble and they are trying to put them back on track but there is a right way and a wrong way and denying bathroom rights and taking away days over petty stuff is wrong.I hope someone else replys to this and im going to look into what the rights are for the use of the restroom for which my child is being denied. If the teacher were told no they could not go to the restroom i bet things would change real quick there.
