This school does not have a principal but 3 principals that oversee 3 Academies. This place hasn't been able to keep a principal or many teachers in a long time. Steve Ballowe has not only destroyed the integrity of the city system, long-time residents like myself wonder where the old Big Red has gone? Why is this guy running off so many people? Could it be becasue he is a bully and spins every issue into a political self-promoting attempt to stroke his ego? Expect no help from our school Board....they sold out to this tyrant long ago with Lee Highsmith being the worst of them all. Willie Mitchell will vote however Kelvin Simmons votes---Ballowe gets 2 for the price of 1 there!!! Frank Harben is relatively clueless and David Syfan is not much better....unless you like the lawyer-type. My children went through this school and in the span of 6 years, I think we had a new principal every year!!!! One guy was Ballowe's buddy that never wanted to be here in Gainesville anyway. Mr. Thorpe was semi-retired when they hired him and the last guy lasted half a year and who knows what he did! I wish Mac was back!!!
Curtis Bibb was Steve Ballowe's friend from South Carolina. He was on Fox 5 news for drug cover-ups. He was arrested for being a crack dealer and this guy was an assistant superintendent. I also heard he sexually harrassed many many females in the school district while he was there.
I am ashamed to be a Red Elephant nowadays. Steve Ballowe has brought disgrace to our community.
