Open Quote This school has taken discipline to the extreme. The police officer, with the principals approval, files misdemeanor charges for the slightest infraction. ie. A child throws a pencil out of a bus they are sent to the juvenile court system for using the pencil as a weapon. It is against the law to throw things from a bus and discipline action should be taken but taken a straight A student, send them to the court system, causing the prosecutor to use valuable time and take the courts time for what should be handled in the school is rather overkill. Sending that student, that has no prior infractions to two weeks evaluation and send to Richmond juvenile detention for 6 months is a waste of tax payers money and may just be part of the reason this school ranks in the lower 50% in academics in the state of VA.

The Vice Principal was very sympathetic with the parent but stated his hands were tied. Because of Columbine incident they were required to turn all discipline action over to the police and let them handle it.

The incident above is altered to protect the student but very real in its true story. The prosecutor struck a deal before it got to the judge and the student was not sent to Richmond but it was very close and may yet happen. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
