  1. Anyone who doesn’t think this is still going on is delusional. The current headmaster has private meetings with young girls all the time after which they come out shaking. He is known as a bully, intimidating kids with threats of withholding college recommendations. There are coaches still using their positions to intimidate people into performing sexual favors, girls and boys. The school is replete with arrogant administrators and teachers so full of themselves to be at HM and abusing power to intimidate students and parents. Parents don’t dare complain or their kids will be marked. The kids are mostly good kids who are victimized but the rapes continue of body and spirit. This school ness to be investigated, starting at the top. Nobody currently there dares to call the hotline or their children will be penalized. It is a regime of terror.
