There have been gang incidents at Stagg going back at least 15 years. It was caused by migrating families from Chicago bringing their children ( gang members) with them. I was involved in gang study back then and Stagg was the only one that ever came up when talking to police officers. It was a clash of ethnic groups.Not sure of the status of these schools currently.

Still seems like Stagg stories are frequent , report on some of the good things from Stagg balance it out a bit. I have 2 girls there and I see many positives.
