In a release letter, Principal Alisha Trusty said last week she learned some college admissions materials required from the all-girls public school, including transcripts, school profiles, and recommendations were not received by all the colleges students applied.

Trusty said she immediately contacted the parents of 24 students who had not been accepted to any college. A spokesperson said 10 of those students were eventually admitted to a school, leaving 14 members in a class of 187 still waiting.

The principal also wrote the school is investigating the cause of the oversight, and will hold the responsible parties accountable for the mishap.
