539. Paramount Academy
Paramount Academy is run by Camelot Education (Which has origins from the infamous Brown Schools which closed around 2005 due to upcoming lawsuits which would have bankrupted them).
It seems that this alternative school is run like a prison and the school district responsible for the operations at the school closed their eyes instead of providing an oversight which could have ensured the safety of the students.
In one incident a police investigation resulted in conviction of two school employees for violence against a student and a try to cover up the incident. The school administration which urged the employees to cover up the violence was not convicted.
It cannot be a fun place to be as a teenager.
