Yea it was truly amazing to go to that school. I was there my entire life and when he took over things really went bad. I hated how we lost a lot of good teachers that were replaced with incompetent people who werent certified to teach. But the real deal was the football program. Oh man, I remember the first year they kicked out a lot of kids cause they didn't play. Whoever said barham gives kids second chances better look deeper into that. My parents took me out for the reason that they were paying for me to go while those "second chance" kids were getting a free ride with good grades cause they would take their report cards to him and he would change their f-ing grades!!!

Smh WoW!! I didn't know about none of this. Coach never mention this to none of the students. If I would've known this I would've been left. Don't get me wrong he is a good coach but to sale a dream was the most hurtful thing that happen to me. And after 5 years of being there I received a diploma with my last name spelled wrong. And to think I knew a role model.

David Barham and I have been friends for several years. I can attest to the fact that much like the rest of us he is NOT perfect. Not even close. That being said, all this hate talk is toooooooo much.
David is a Christian, and his daily walk in life proves this out. He takes in kids at Prep that society has already tossed aside, and tries to give them something better. The typical kid is African American, bad situation at home, no father figure, low income, cannot afford the tuition, etc etc....you get the picture. This is not opinion, but fact. He has a heart for these kids and takes them in knowing full well that most of them will at some point in time disappoint him. He uses athletics in addition to the classroom to teach them about the lessons of life (most of which you can't find in a text book) and attempts to get them qualified for college. He takes donations from the private sector to help pay for the students that can't afford the tuition.
I have a suggestion for those of you who do not agree with the way he runs Prep. Go start your own school and run in the way you want to run it. This is America after all. Good luck!!
David is fully aware that he will in fact be judged by God one day for ALL of his actions on this earth. On that judgement day, his works will stand on their own. Its not for you or me to decide or judge.
And now you know the "rest of the story"....Peace.....PH2
This is crazy... I went to prep from 2004-2007 and though we didnt have the best materials COACH barham tried his best to push us in class and was nothing short of a great man and father figure. I can say this because i know as a player for him i caused him a great deal of stress from "tryin to thug my way through life" lol, but he always stayed on me and i have learned so much lessons from him and COACH bullara that i cant wait to pass on to my kids... GREAT MAN GREAT COACH can't exactly speak on the financial end of it. But i can say i never once felt used

I'm not sure but he did sell that building to the sheriff department for 900,000 dollars but what is interesting about the sale is that David knowingly had asbestos in the building and guidroz and the EPA made him remove it. Can you say class action lawsuit against that clown for educating those children for all those years in an asbestos building

I don't understand how he gets away with so much. God, please save us all from this man and his family from destroying lives. He needs to be reckoned with.
