216. The Gunnery School

The Gunnery School was once recognized as a fine place to get your exam. Students could even avoid the cruel life boarding students normal speak about and be day students at the school. However lack of a security system to protect students against abuse from employees allowed the former Dean and house parent Robert Reinhardt to use 4 students in an improper way for which he got 9.5 years in prison. He will have to register as a sex offender when he is released.

It didn’t sound like a fun place to be as teenager. Hopefully the present management has improved the security and screening of employees so this terrible event will not be repeated in the future.
