A charter school A-rated by day, X-rated by night?

Because this story by Kathleen McGrory was too outrageous not to post:

By day, the Balare Language Academy is an A-rated charter school, home to children in kindergarten through middle school.

But when the kids are tucked into bed, Balare apparently becomes a playground of a different kind.

Party fliers, printed and on the Web, indicate that the campus at 10875 Quail Roost Dr. has been hosting raunchy, booze-soaked bashes into the wee hours. One flier for an upcoming party features a voluptuous, scantily clad woman posing with champagne bottles. Another shows a woman in a string bikini bending over suggestively and a man with flashy jewelry sitting on a stack of currency in front of a gold sports car.

Asked if the school was hosting any parties, founder and principal Rocka Malik responded: “Not that I’m aware of.”

School attorney Marlon Hill said Balare is investigating.

“The school takes this type of allegation very seriously and with the highest priority,” he said, adding that it sublets the space to two churches on the weekends.

Parents at the school were the first to sound the alarm this week.

The school district received complaints from parents who wondered why there were empty beer bottles at their child’s school. They also complained about a lingering smell of smoke — and those provocative party promotions advertising Push it to Da Limit Pt-1: The Flossin Edition this coming Saturday.

More here. See the flier below.
