All this stuff is all true, especially about the auto body instructor, Gary Ipock, Jimmy Moore and who knows how many other Glen Mills Staff.
All the bad stuff going on in the school was hidden from Mr. Ferrainola, he would have done something about it, if he had known.
The Ferrainola`s are great people and family, and, what happened to them is a disgrace.
Justice needs to happen to the abusive, drug dealing and drug using staff.
Why did GMS run the Ferrainolas out?

Not sure what your idea of "back in the day" is or was but I was there four years ago and they were still using their "touch" tactics with excessive amounts of force. I had a shirt ripped from my body in one such "confrontation". In another confrontation my head was repeatedly bashed against a cement block wall. I would wear the proof of this man's temper around my neck, the bruises from his grasp on my neck lingered for days as well as the many large knots on the back of my head.
To say this was my worst day there would be a falsehood. There were many nights I cried myself to sleep. I'm sure many sixteen year old boys would never admit to crying let alone crying every night for weeks at a time. Anyone who's read anything about this "school" knows it's abusive history and believes that the abuse of young, impressionable, troubled boys has come to an abrupt halt without being forced to correct their policies or through penalty of prison - I just wouldn't believe it.
Parents, don't permit your child to be shipped off to this school. We were isolated and alone and told that if we reported the abuse to anyone we would not be believed. If you'd been "touched" recently and had visible contusions or marks of any kind due to their disciplinary proceedures your visits with family were absolutely out of the question. The visit would be canceled and your family would be told you were being punished for whatever reason they chose to use at the time so that the family would not see and therefore not question the resulting marks left on their child's body. Students who bore the real story of abuse that went on behind closed doors and was evident by bruises, lumps or abrasions were isolated from anyone outside the Glen Mills hierarchy.
Although I'm still angry beyond words and have put this in the past but I chose to speak out about it in hopes of saving another child the devastation and suffering I indured while in their care and custody. Their brutality was unconscionable. Perhaps they should teach courses on conscience and ethics and focus less on athletics.
Be well, keep your children safe
anyway you sayin wat you think and you just scared i think you are anyway thats wrong you cant blame it on parents or kidz i blame the soceity and the state for even keeping a place opened like that so your just scared and a a**ho*.....

Was a GMS kid from 2000-2002 when I graduated from their so called schooling! Yes the unnecessary touching does in fact happen. Tresa Ferranola husband Tony Pastucci worked in Johnson hall where I resided. Tony was just regular PM staff at the time, the PM senior was came from the welding shop Charles Hope was AM senior and Reggie Owens was team leader, when I left. Joe Miller was originally the team leader with Reggie AM and Charles PM. But as far as the muscle head Tony Pastucci, his "muscle head" rages all make sense to me now, he was jonesing for his next high. The dude, Tony was the son-in-law of Sam Ferranola so my guess is SF did in fact know/support all the unnecessary hands on bullshit that happened quite often when Tony came. I spent time in GMS and George Junior Republic(GJR) in Mercer County PA, and all programs should be based on GJR philosophy.
Tony was never the son-in-law to Mr. F... while he was employed at GMS..he just weaseled his way into their family and destroyed them.. by manipulating a wedge between Mr. F. and his family...Because Mr. had dementia..the family had a hard time convincing him to retire before the dementia got worse..they were often threaten they would lose their jobs....Joe did try and lost his job..Rose tried and was threatened many times ..ask Bernie..he knows the truth... With an ailing wife and no one to talk to..the F. were always taking the heat.. Why didn't any one from RM step in or the board members..especially C.J whose wife suffers from the same disease ..instead they coward away behind the doors of the golf course and made their coo attack on Mr.F when he was at his weakest..Dementia is a disease of the mind..he did not know what he was doing in the last few years of his Directorship..and all who took part in your behind-closed door..schemed to coo attack a man who did so much for all of you and your families should be ashamed ..Would you have treated him this way had he had cancer????/..He is a legend and did everything with the best intentions for his staff and students.. do all you staff members really believe without him..you would be living the way you are???

i went to Glen Mills from 2007 to the end of 2008. i was 15 years old. it was crazyy. ive been thrown around. my head through walls, shirts ripped, body bruised. i seen a kid get his arm broken. ive seen a kid get taken upstairs away from everyone so they can do whatever they wanted to do. he came back down with swollen eyes, busted lip, and bruises on his body and on his face. i understand that if you follow the norms you will be ok. but there is a norm for everything you do. and staff have to follow procedures when restraining a kid. they punch kick or throw kids? GLEN MILLS is CORRUPTION. simple as that. some staff really just want to impress other staff and show how tough they can be to the other kids watching. CORRUPTIONNNNN!!!

Well, it would seem that my retirement is interrupted.....,
Tony, it is true, not a legal member of the Ferrainola clan. He was simply baby-daddy to Tresa's last three kids. As for the "wedge" assertion? Uh, not so much. Tresa was/is theeeee purest evil. Tresa & Tresa's siblings are/were reasons for the downfall. I'm sure Tony wasn't/isn't pure as the driven snow, maybe he was a "wedge" in the clan, but not the reason for the ousting.
Mr Ferrainola & Joe did have an altercation & he was banished. Rose, I don't doubt you tried to keep the craziness under control, but ONLY to make sure yours & the clan's positions were secure. "an ailing wife and no one to talk to"? Rosie, no one disputes your Mom's condition(s), but how could your dad talk to her when he was practically living over Tresa's house? Hell, he had an extension built onto an already huge house to accommodate her. What? He couldn't walk (or be pushed) 15 feet? If you want to believe that crapola, fine, just don't expect not to be called on it by those that know.
Rosie, NOT disputing that your Dad built this place up & built it up at a huge cost to himself. I certainly am thankful EVERYDAY for the life we have courtesy of the 'Mills.
But here's where we will (continuously, it seems...,) part paths. You kids had EVERYTHING and squandered it all. RE:"wanted his children to have a comfortable life as any father wants for his children...," The drugs, drinking, and just general horrendous behavior? THIS is what fathers want for their kids?! THAT is what, in your book, is a comfortable life?! You're upset that GI didn't want to continue to support that & the very people that have accused him of drugs, being gay, and I believe Nicole called him a wimp in one post? You are completely correct, Rose, what a douche GI is for NOT honoring that handshake.....,
To the poster(Johnson Hall) that inquired why Mr Ferrainola was kicked to the curb, see page #58/post 1193.
Rosie/Iminterested, the clan is out BECAUSE you all gave 'em enough reasons to finally do it. Now, puhleeeze, go back to whatever it is you were doing. You can take the minions with you, too....,

I agree that the leadership is the same. GI - The same for years under Sam. The RMs - same, under Sam. TLs - same, under Sam. Veritas - the same, under Sam. They all had every ability to speak out and change things, to make a difference during ALL the years instead they decided to hide. They were parasites and then decided to throw rocks from their glass houses. They took everything they could, everything that was given them and wanted more. When push comes to shove? They shrink..........like frightened turtles..........

You sound quite the ......, same, too, just using a different sign on. So, I will ask it, again, of you. Why are YOU still here? Or could it be that you WERE here & aren't anymore? Either answer doesn't quite paint the moral superior you fashion yourself to be, AG.
A) Still here, quietly fuming because of the perks? or
B) Still employed/with employee and have been cast out?
C) Insert your own rationalization, here.
Any way you answer the question, AG. leaves you little moral high ground. "Frightened turtles"? Lay off the haikus and start looking for or helping the current GMS employee go find some other "worthy" employment.
Let me crystal for the Ferrainolas, their minions, and the disgruntled ex/current GMS'ers that want the 'Mills to implode just 'cause they aren't around anymore. The "Mills is simply a work place, now. Whatever goes on, good, bad, or indifferent, goes on just like it does in any OTHER place of business. The change is no more crazy drama. That's enough for the vast majority of us still here.
So, I guess in a round about way, you are correct about "same"ness, AG. You just weren't specific enough. Ferrainola's "same" old trick of blaming someone/thing else for their ousting. "same" old whiny minion/ex/current employee with no housing.
When one of you pops their noggins up from here on out (think Wac-a-Mole), I will simply refer them/you to posts #1193 & 1157. In keeping with our haiku themed imagery, I will bid you, Itte kimasu.

Hope you know these are read by Board members who are disgusted with what is going on at GMS..and disgusted with how you spend your time responding to these forums that should not be your battleground against the Ferrainola's..You are ashamed at what you did and are suffering the consequenses of a dropping population and disgunted staff who have to sit and watch how you are spending the money the Ferrainola's left FOR THE STUDENTS...not you...be careful in public..they know who you are.

It could be JR...always did start s..t and manipulate trouble between siblings..Like the time he accused my son for throwing a pack of Starburst on his daughters head..on Halloween..came to my house and blamed my son..my son told him the girls started throwing candy at them and then pat mc did hit his daughter by accident. pat Mc...don's son who was at my house sorting through his pillowcase full of candy...stood up and apologizes to his daughter..then JR stormed out never apologizing for accusing my son..went to my brother and told him I didn't know how to discipline my kids...then it got to Mr.F..and he held a meeting with his TL and RM and ripped my boys apart for something they didn't even do...JR couldn't look me in the eye for about a year..knowing how that severed my relationship with their grandfather..and that is just 1 of many things he did to wedge controversy between me and my family...remember the golf cart issue.where we had to have a community meeting about the kids driving them.JR didn't mind that JF and RI son's had motorcycles and drove them around the neighborhood...so when someone asked JR did he mind the motorcycles situation..he couldn't say that bothered him cause that might upset JF his boss..so i took away the golf cart and bought the boys motorcycles instead..by the way does the Board know JR does consulting work for SEQUEL a school that takes away potential students from us..I would think that with a dwindling pop..someone might confront him..and JR didn't really do much work at GMS but did make money on top of his salary to do consulting work ..which would give him loads of time to look at ways to make himself the grand pu pah...destroy Mr.F. and his family and write all this bullshit on here..but like you said earlier ..there were many who could have spoke up when they had a chance but instead threw their rocks from their glass houses and still don't have any balls..to make changes..hahahahhahah it is funny to see Mr. Karma doing his thing

Truly Veritas, you have come up with a great suggestion. Why don't you retire? Why don't we all retire! GMS should set up a program for voluntary retirement. It would SAVE THE SCHOOL MONEY, which it seems GMS deperately needs right now before the layoffs start in June, and retire staff who have been at GMS for decades. That would be brilliant. A buyout for the old folks. Go talk to your neighbor the bean counter and let's get it done. Only when all is said and done can you STAY OFF MY BEACH?
