885. Chartwell Manor School

Chartwell Manor School located near Mendham in New Jersey closed in 1984. It was a boarding school for special need children.

Before that it was the center of a case involving the head master Sir Terence Michael Lynch who were brought to trial accused for 100 counts of sexual assault and other charges for spanking half-naked male students in class while fondling them and forcing students to perform sexual acts. He served 7 years in prison. Two other employees charged with sexual assault and sexual conduct.

Recently former student sued because they felt that they were failed by the system to become victim of this abuse. Also a book has been released covering the facility.

It could not have been fun to be there as a student.
