No say it ain't so. Not a fight at Choices. How could this be?? That's where they send all the good kids 🤷‍♀️ *sarcasm*

These kids should not be allowed to mill around. Halls are for getting from one class to another, not for socializing.

Choice is what they call the place they send violent disruptive students, When what they really need is the old fashion Reform school.

Apparently they had made the choices to be common losers and thugs. That is probably just another random Tuesday for them. I love how the above pasted info states that it is for a ‘diverse student population’. Really? C’mon now. Diverse like the NBA?
