Josh,
I am assumming you are from coatesville cause it says your writing from coatesville. I went to Coatesville high school, and had boys that went to GMS when i was in school. They got their crap together there. Half the reason when i went to college i was interested in workin there. Now i work there and think for the most part i am helpin the students. I even had opportunity to have 3 coatesville kid's as counselees...and stay in touch with those kids. Sorry you feel that way bout the school, but i am doin my best to get my kids doin the right thing and stayin out of trouble.

i was just recently at glen mills i will admit that it taught me alot of responsiblity. I was a member of the track team under rich nicholas one of the best people there and thanks to him i still run track in college. and i was also their class valedictorin for this year. But i recently lost my scholarship with them for posting on here but i dont need or want money from a school that will beat kids. if one was to go there when the sun goes will see what type of place it is. Y ou will see kids getting thrown across the cafe for taking 2 bags of cookies at one time but that is ridiculous. i learned alot from being up there the main thing is determination and this school will be exposed one day no matter what they think and their abusive staff. it's not over josh people going to see what goes on.

i graduated with the 2004 class and all i can say is i feel that glen mills was the best place for me if i didnt attend glen mills i probably would have ended up in real bad shape there is alot of good that can come out of being in glen mills it just depends on how you want to take it if you want piss around then you'll get your ass handled but if you want to mature into a young adult then you will thrive in every aspect of there program i think the person that taught me the most in glen mills while was there for 2 years was doug delong and pat mcshea oh and funny ass mike oneal.... anybody else from class of 04....

Glen Mills is not a last resort placement for juveniles. I was charged with aggravated assault, not murder or drug charges. So PREVIOUS STUDENT, you were probably one of the SPORTS STARS because you must have had some special treatment to not think there is some wrong things going on there. It is way more than physical restraint!
Since my son is there, I'm concerned. I wonder what you mean by "way more than physical restraint. When were you there?

im 18 i was at gms for 2 years glen mills helped me out alot i got my ged a couple vocational certs but it wasnt worth it staff members take advantage of the kids if they had a bad day the staff would come take it out on us, if a staff member didnt like you he would beat the hell out of you every day they worked , i fully understand i was put there unwillingly as a punishment but i would of rather sat in a cell for my time someone should really investigate that place and i guarentee it gets shut down. and for the guy saying he worked there and they use the descilation techniques thats bullshit they do wat they want wen they want and cover it up very well

Keep on posting your fake cover ups staff... People from your past, present, and future will keep posting here... Many will never care to post here, many will never know about this board, but enough GM students will keep finding it... and keep posting thier experiences.
How does it feel to have to hear the truth about who you are and what you do for a living... most of you staff have your heads so far up your a** that you dont even see the reality of what your everyday life consists of.
But we are hear to remind you... no one forgets what they have seen or been through there. No one!
So i say to everone, keep posting, keep reminding those low-life staff members of GM what they really are. Let thier family know what they really do for a living....

You are nothing more than a criminal... a Child Abuser is what we call it here in the "real" world.

Hears one for you... Buchanon Hall staff.. i wont mention any names... but how many of you feel good about beating a child because of a sleeping disorder?
or how about a child with a speech disorder...

no, how about beating someone just because you didnt like the way they looked. Shall i go on?

Go ahead deny it, I have an excellent memory. I can call you all out. As well as the students you beat. I dont think that would benefit anyone... i just want to know... did you really feel you were helping them?

I am glad you posted this because,it really makes sense to me now, I felt like they were picking at him for any little thing they could find but if there was no big thing to confront him on, they had to choose something that would make him realize he is not going to skate thru the program without learning something. He is learning alot there and I don't have anything bad to say about the school thus far.
Dont Tell Staff Anything Bad About The Program While His In There. He Will Get In Trouble. When Your Son Comes Home For Good Talk To Him About It. Tell Him To Go Into Detail About His Stay N His Peers Stay At Glen Mills schools. Its Been 13 Years Still Remember It Like It Was Yesterday..

I can understand where you are coming from. But I think it also depends on the staff in each townhouse. I work with children. I know for a fact that it takes a special person to work with children. I know some of the staff there is hard core,and I guess when he does come home I'll learn the truth. But I have placed my faith in the system and with my kid. He will come out of there with a GED. There has to be at least one positve outcome of your stay there. I sure if you dig deep you'll find one. Maybe its that you will never want to go back there. So if you keep yourself clean.....
Good Luck To your Child. I'll Pray For Him An All The Other Kids There.

cnc, congrats on your respect you earned! You are the coolest cat on the street now, be proud. That street cred is going to get you real far in life! You are now my idle. You kids don't even know what a snitch is! You kids are suppose to confront eachother, staff should not even have to deal with an issue if you do it right. Staff only deals with major issues and issues that kids can not handle on their own. The program is based on peer to peer confrontation, but you kids wanna be so hard on the street and not confront stuff, so staff has to deal with it, then you don't make homepasses.
cnc, get off the street, move my man....that ain't bein a bitch...i use to live in a bad area, and would have been a glen mills student if i my parents didn't get me out of there. Thank god, a change of scenery can go a long way.
cnc thanks for tellin grandmom advice, her grandson can sit at glen mills over christmas cause he didn't confront something. Thanks for bringing their family together over the holidays

Dan Post Up The First Name Of Each One
I dont feel exposing anyone's name is doing anything for anyone on this forum. I post hear just for the simple fact that i am not a liar, i think its wrong, and i think people have the right to know.
If i had a personal issue with one of them, sure i would call them out. I dont have an issue with anyone in particular. I think they all sail the same ship. They all beat children, whether they think its for the best or not, they do it.
