I have a son that was placed there this year in March. I heard stories of this beating and such, but didn't think to much into it. Besides I'm thinking like if this really does happen then it would be close by now.He had told me stories about him witnessing people being beat up by staff, my reply was don't give them a reason to do it to you. Well My son was being questioned about an item being found in there room. When my son wasn't giving them the information they wanted in other words they wanted him to snitch, they hit on him. I know this to be true because staff and his counselor informed me that there was an altercation but it has been resolved. MY boy told me that if they hit on him he won't stay, and he didn't. A month ago he fled Glen Mills. I still have no idea where he is, if he's eating, does he have shelter!! If There no hands on policy was inforced to include staff this wouldn't be happening .So parents if your son is going to be or on the verge of being sent there,fight it please, I didn't,I thought It was a great place. I went to vist I seen the fear in kids, always watching there backs etc. The one thing that was positive he got a GED. 7/30/13

I was at glen mills from 95-99 n it was hell but im from the gridiron streets of chicago,Ill n gary,IN. so in a way by me hearing about glen mills before I went I was ready for it. I made it without being beatn badly but I was roughed up sum a few times for really no reason at all. What I am saying is everybody cant go through a commitment at that place. It shouldnt be called a school. Its some things going on there n its alot of peoples behind it. We dont know whats going on but I can say its not right. These stories I read is crazy n I know that they are true. Parents no matter what problems u are having with your son/s dont send him there. That stuff isnt made up. Yes strong minded,fearless, young angry boys like I was can make it but what about the weak young boys there...ive heard about sexual assaults,what about that? Wsup with the hiring of this staff? I would say fuŠk sum of u n burn in hell! For what u men do to those boys. They r lost n confused n aways from home. They r scared n u take advantage of them...God see what u all have done n u will be punished, so we dont need u to be sry,u need to be ready.
...you have to be a strong kid to go there an I was a real strong kid ...but a weak kid will get ate up there ..the STAFF pray on them also that places fucks with u mentally ...it's bad ppl trust me it's all true I lived it...don't let your kids stay

I was placed in Glen Mills at the age of 15 by my probation officer for a misdemeanor marijuana charge. I attended from the end of February of 2005 until the end of May; in actuality a very short stay compared to most kids. The way the staff at this school treat the children is disgusting. For simply cutting their eyes or moving their body while talking to staff members I witnessed the beatings of many kids. At one point, I actually witnessed a child who was on crutches get violently thrown into a concrete wall for cutting his eyes while talking to a staff member. The worst incident I ever witnessed was when a child accidentally touched a staff member (I personally witnessed this, and I KNOW it was an accident). This poor kid was brutally beaten by a 300 pound staff member right in front of my eyes. They use the term "physical restraint"; I call it a savage beatdown. I stood in horror as I watched this kid get get thrown into a chalkboard multiple times, and when he fell to the ground on his hands and knees, this massive staff member (who's name is Jason Slizofski in case you wanted to know) proceeded to brutally kick this kid in the ribs with all his might. The kid was dragged from the classroom covered in blood, crying his eyes out. When I saw the kid later that night, he was dragged into the unit office to be beaten again by the team leader, Kevin Owens. I did not witness this, but I am not stupid, and the sounds were clear. He was then given an FTA (Failure To Adjust) and was promptly sent to another placement. The bottom line is that in the Glen Mills Schools, they do not "manually assist" or "physically restrain"; they simply beat the living daylights out of children for not complying or for being disrespectful. Keep in mind that not complying means accidentally twitching while talking to staff, not making complete eye contact, or from using any term deemed as slang when speaking to staff. On a much larger basis, I consistently witnessed widespread verbal abuse also. The staff that work at these schools are nothing short of disgusting animals, and I hope to God that one day the lid gets blown off in this school. The only thing this school did for me was make me realize that there are really some disgusting people in this world; massive men the size of NFL players who enjoy beating children for looking at them the wrong way.
yea there all like fuckin WWF guys ..I was a big kid though 6.1 at 17 so they use to try an mess with me cause I was on the power lifting team they wanted me to play ball I wouldn't so they beat me...u were a 90 day kid u had it good but even that is more then enough...Kevin Owens is a botch an pat is a gag his tattoos suck an if I see any of them now I'm catching wreck...Lincoln hall sucks

What was said to happen at glen mills even I was not there till fall of 2007 and stayed through to spring of 2008 I know that all of that is true and I have seen similar actions some worse where a student was thrown into the cafeteria wall multiple time and another student slammed into a desk all for minor infractions but I believe that these actions though unethical are necessary to keep the order and a firm hand is what is needed to turn around the paths of kids who are sent there I did not like glen mills when I was there and saw all the mental and physical abuse kids encounter along with the multiple times I was beat but it turned me around and the programs and services they offer are remarkable but nothing is earned for free kids who can deal with the tough times will accomplish and succeed beyond expect ions the students at glen mills are juvenile delinquents in the eyes of the public they are convicted of a crime and are sentenced to jail time but glen mills turns their time into an opportunity to grow learn and become an important member of society and they do that very well but with a stern and strong hand but it has tremendous results
guy your a clown u prob use to be one of them snitching kids I was in Glen mills when you were there an shit was crazy ...yeah they have sports but is it worth gettin your ads beat if u miss a pass if u miss a freewheeling u can't bench way they want u to bench...I played on the football team an the power lifting team an theyvpressurebu way to much an beat u....u know wat went down at that place I saw kids get thrown over pool tables...that program sucks it would be better with ppl who actually cared...Glen mills was the worst place ever clown

I was a student in Jefferson hall for 12 months back im 2004. Honestly I forgot all about how messed up the abuse from staff was until reading this thread. "Physical Restraints" were honestly just excuses for physocal abuse from staff. I remember an exec(romodel student) from my unit who litterally got jumped by Brian Wealthy and atleast 12 other staff because he didn't like how he was standing while he was talking to him in the rec center. Subsequently that kid was shipped out and charhed as am adult for simply trying to defend his self from a group of grown men beating on him.I remember 2 students in my unit being forced to clean the common areas while having bars of soap in there mouth just because the staff member didn't like how they were sitting during townhouse meeting. The students had blisters on there toungues from the chemical reaction. I remember a student in my unit literally getting his head kicked by a 6'8" staff member with size 18 construction boots on. Kids getting slammed through walls in the student union for not having there feet on the foot rails. Honestly when I think back that place was pretty bad. Honestly I definitely feel there were also valuable lessons and other benefactors in the program. But kids were 100% absolutely abused regularly and excessively assaulted by staff members for things that were not warranted. I definitely become desensitized to those things since I left from there many years ago. Reading this thread definitely brought back a lot of memories.

If that was My child, I would have went there and put a bullet in the head of the staff member that did that. I was a student there in 1987 and 1988 and i seen beatings as well. never to a point where there was blood, but the staff did get way too rough with the students. Parents need to pay attention.

I was in Glen Mills in 96. I wish people would stop crying about a school that may have saved there lives. We obviously didnt know how to act, and our behavior had to be corrected. I was in Madison Hall and will forever remember my stay fondly. I learned more about life and my inner strength while there than any other time in my life. Stop blaming everyone else for your problems. If you didnt want to be disciplined then you should have acted right. I was there for three years and was never abused. Thank you so much to my counselor Rich Nicklaus for being a mentor and a friend. Shane from Sarasota Florida. GO BULLS!!!!!!!!

yOU PEOPLE CRY TO MUCH. gLEN mILLS was the best place I have ever been with a great sports program and incredible education. If you couldnt handle it you should have kept your a#s out of trouble gangsters. you people still cant take responsibility for your own actions you should look in the mirror and bring your self up in group and then scrub your kitchen floor because you still havent learned anything. they could have just sent you to prison and ive been there i promise you were better treated at Glen Mills. What did Redman say "Buck up Bart". You people are nothing but snitches on people who tried to help you.when you finally become a man you might Finally take responsibility for your own actions.
