I can say this school is excellent. They have truly turned it completely around. With the new principal and excellent curriculum specialist they have changed the school completely. My daughter is excelling beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

This school is great I see the rating and think the this can not be true. My child does well however I am an involved parent. If my child comes home with a problem I am calling or at the school the next day. Education starts at home and if the teacher is the only one teaching what do you expect. I went to an awards ceremony and realized that some awards given were made up due to the lack of words given by the teachers and staff it was obvious who was not taght encouraged or even cared about at home. The teachers and staff here has bent over backwards for me and my child sending extra work if there is a gap and also giving individualized plans. Anyone who recieves a poor education here it is because of lack of concern from caregivers and parents. Teachers can't do everything. Some things must be enforced and encouraged at home. If a parent does not teach a child or encourage a child then why leave it up to a public school system alone. This is a great school and as an involved parent I see teachers with a passion to teach and prepare children for sucess. We are on the right track here at MLKJ.

Great kids, greater teachers. Fine staff and administration. I recommend this school for any parent that has any doubts on whether their child can have a good public education.

I have found nothing impressive about this school. I think my child is in the midst of an animal kingdom with no structure. I visited his room one day and was appalled at what I saw. I think the principal could execute a little more structure to correct the behavior. I know it starts at home, and I make it a strong rule of thumb to do so. Not to mention I hear they were merging another school next fall which means more chaos with what type structure to go forth? My child will be in another school this fall.

This school is at the bottom of the list and should be avoided. I would give it a zero rating.
