Hey, I worked there for a while. Sad to say most of those kids are there because their parents have failed. If they are treating you like crap... You probably are.

So you're basically saying that you want your child to be treated like a criminal. This school doesn't house "criminals", it houses kids that have mental illnesses or other behavior disorders. Kids like this don't just pop up on the radar for no reason. In most cases they suffer some sort of mental, physical or sexual abuse. So if you are being treated like a criminal ( which im sure you are not, and if you are than I wouldn't doubt the validity of the claim) it's probably because the people who work there have seen so much that the first conclusion that they jump to is to blame the parents and who could blame them?

I was a student there about ten years ago. My parents are fantastic, I have never suffered any sort of abuse. Yeah, honestly, most kids there have but that is NOT a prerequisite for having psychiatric problems.
Barboursville School was a horrible, horrible place. I could go on forever about the inadequacies and failures of the staff there but where my experience was so long in the past, I won't. I will say my family was close to suing them, though.

I was an employee there about 3 years ago and I loved working with the kids. THEY ARE NOT DELINQUENT CRIMINALS! These kids are mentally ill and many of them have suffered horrible abuse or neglect. I hated the administration, though. They were always on hiring freezes, yet were seriously understaffed. We were forced to work 80 hr weeks for barely over minimum wage and they did not care to make you work both overnight and day shift in the same week. The supervisor also made inappropriate comments to female staff. I also got yelled at and called a liar by HR, the person who is supposed to encourage cooperation at work. I ended up quitting because they treated their staff like crap! Maybe if they would treat their staff with respect and pay them what they're worth,(which is about double what you made, considering you're potentially being put at risk) parents wouldn't be complaining that the staff were horrible!

I was a past resident there a few years ago. That place is horrible! The staff and teachers make fun of you and everything. I almost sued them after I left cause one of the male staff slammed me down on the hard floor and busted my head, I still have head problems from that. The place needs shut down honestly. Don't ever send your kids there! Please dont!
