No doubt! SC high should change there name to Thug High. My son went there last year. We have since moved and he is no longer there. The thugs run the school. It's flat out awful. It wasn't like that when I graduated in 87. That place has gone down hill.

My son graduates this year. It's not that bad. Although there is a crowd there that are Bullies. I was told it was a much better school back before the Dunbar kids came across the bridge.

Seriously? All schools have bullies and thugs my kids have the option to attend JA or SC middle from there they will attend the same high school. There mother is a SC grad and I am a GW grad both are great schools. The issue is not bullies its over crowding in the middle schools. My children are split up as we speak our oldest an 8th grader chose SCMS from Ruthlawn as his Middle School and our 7th grader chose JA from Ruthlawn as his Middle School. My 7th grader has all 8 classes in portables and he does not have a single workbook he can bring home for homework, they all bring copies of CDs home that have their homework and study guides on them. Because there just isnt enough books to go around. While I understand I dont think annexing Ruthlawn will fix the issue. It will just carry the problem over to SCMS. I believe that building onto the schools is a must and employing more educated teachers is the key. There has to be funds look at the add on they did at GW some yrs ago. Just my opinion.

Wait until you get to SCHS you will be whispering a new toon. SCMS isn't bad, but the high school is a whole different story.

I graduated there in 86. You are right, there was a little rip rap there then but it was dealt with. It was unheard of to have bullies and thugs and I don't ever recall of a teacher having sex with the students. Now you get a young man or woman in the teaching field and they were not the popular one when they were in school so they make up for it by acting like a teen and end up having sex with someones child. Makes me scared for my daughter. She was in the band before but not now.
