What is kingswood like now? I am hearing a lot of awful things about it. I have talked to several parents recently who have said its worse now than its ever been...and have had to take there children out because its so bad. Does anyone have any current information on what has changed....or if is getting better?

Helton should have been taken away in cuffs! Anyone who knew him knew he was a crook! I wonder how many kids contributed to his retirement from their money? Good riddance Darrell Helton!

Oh no...that's not a good sign. Justice has an awful reputation from what iv heard. I hear he's fruity as a bat.... And gets laughed out of the courtroom by the judge. No wonder I've been hearing that the place is going under. Last I heard was that the kids there are feed rotten food and is treated like prisoners. I wouldn't send my kid there if it was the last place on earths

Kingswood is an orphanage. All the kids are trated like slaves there and they feed them food that is old and expired. The children are threatned to be sent to mental hospitals and b tied up. If someone would go and talk to the kids they would see how the place really is. They fire the nice teachers and keep the meen ones and no one there cares about how the kids really feel. All the teachers lie to the kids about everythingand say its going to chance and get better but it won't. It never does I know. I went there not long ago I know all the kids there. Its worse then hell

i would hate to think any child would be mistreated.I had brothers and sisters that attended years ago and it was a good place to be everyone was treated fairly and with respect.I myself cannot beleive it has changed that much.Yes disipline is nessary in any school or place.As for Brice Justice he is a very fair and nice person in all dealings I have had with him.If you have a gripe with the school why not ask for a meeting with the board members they are all honarble people and I am sure they would address your concerns.Kingswood school needs the help of the community not the hinderance.

He may be fair but does he really have the education to fill this position? I think that the community would have a say in who would be best for the position. Dealing with children with needs requires knowledge than being a school officer and as I have heard, I think he is a pastor there? Everyone has an opinion and I personally don't care for him but, this is a decision that should be made for the children and not by who will work for less money or who you know.

Kingswood School is a good place for children and the community should support them instead of tearing them down.Have you stopped to think where would these children be if not there? Peopldnt be so judgemental until you know the facts.They are there for a reason....No one in their family it would seem has the morals to take their family in.If you are gonna pick why not find out who their families are and start there

Isn't this school for kids with behavior problems? Sort of a last resort before jail? Maybe if the teachers are mean they have to be? Just a thought.

Kingswood used to be A good place...until the new leadership came in. The new administrator is a complete idiot and the women who he partners with ia crule to children. These kids are mentally abused and mistreated. I just heard from a kingswood employee that the place is shutting down. I know thAt since darel left they can't keep the place staffed. They have gone through at lease 10 counselors and and case managers. I've heard that everyone leaves because of how bad the kids are treated. The women who is in charge is the one who abuses the kids. I have been so bothered by this that I have even called nashville to start an investigation on the place. Kingswood was a wonderful place while darrel helton was in charge. He was a good man. He was done wrong and the women who abuses these children is the one who lied and got him kicked out. Please spread the word that this is not a safe place for children anymore. It makes me sick when I drive by it.
