Last Updated on
Homer High School (Homer, LA)
Although high school students are expected to act like teenagers and may not always have the most mature mental state, it’s the parents that seem to bring trouble to this school. The school had to be placed on lock down for parents bringing weapons such as guns on campus.
Lodge Grass Elementary School (Lodge Grass, MT)
As the only elementary school in the district, the low math and English performances are not an added bonus to the violence surrounding the area. As shootings occur relatively close to the school, this isn’t the safest place for students.
Northwestern High School (Baltimore,MD)
Although the Baltimore Ravens make their city proud with their success in the NFL, the city has a lot of work to do. With a crime rate of 1,417 per 100,000 residents, this school is not located in the safest place; many parents avoid sending their child to this school to ensure their safety.
Strawberry Mansion High School (Philadelphia, PA)
Students have to be welcomed by police officers every day and searched for weapons such as blades and switch knives due to the violent nature of the students.
Abraham Lincoln High School (Philadelphia, PA)
The school has been deemed “persistently dangerous” every year since 2006. Not only are the students unsafe, but the teachers’ lives are being threatened too! Recently, 4 teachers were threatened in a short span of 2 weeks.
