It sucks! There is so much drama in the dorms. I can't get a job in the trade that I went for. It's basically like high school except for the fact that the student lives on campus instead of at home. The only good thing I got out of it was meeting my husband.

My son was going to go but what he wanted to do wasn't available for his age. In the end I was glad he didn't go after different things I had heard. Didn't sound like there is as much supervision as you would think.

Not so much bullying that I can remember. There were cliques, just like in high school. Females trying to steal other females boyfriends, jealousy over different things. The one I attended had a 3:1 male to female ratio.

In a way, it is good for minors who dropped out of high school, but as an adult with a hs diploma it just wasn't worth it.

I went , yes theres tons of bullying. These kids are from low income families and nothing against low income but there's alot of drugs , and gang activity. Also its like a big breeding ground.
