This is hard to answer. Alot of homework is done at school. I appreciate that because teachers are there to ask questions and review with Students.
The teachers actually TEACH here, they just don't ASSIGN work and walk away.
I want to thank the entire staff and the principal for changing my son's outlook. He had started your school as an F student and did not believe he could be any more then that. Last year he was an A/B student at your school. My son has learned that you earn privileges, respect is a two-way street and that he is capable of getting good grades and staying out of trouble. I think the principal and staff are amazing they take students no one else wants with more issues than most adults and somehow turn it around for them.
God bless them! They work with the kids no school wants and gives them hope that they can change. The teaches and principal hold the students accountable for their grades and their behavior. The principal is always available as well as a counselor and staff.
Yes, students here are suspended from traditional schools for drugs, fighting ect. The principal told my son his first day that he had a clean slate, what he makes of it is up to him. Last year, was the first time my son EARNED an award. He was so proud and the staff was also.
Yes..the students EARN privileges. The staff honestly cares if my son succeeds and he knows it. He went from F student and EARNED A/B grades. My son EARNS privileges at the school and receives weekly counseling.
Horrible school and horrible principal (Lilia Gomez-Napier) please don't send your kids there,I had a bad experience on that "school" if the principal don't like your child she will purposely provoque problems to your kid, then they don't answer your calls...HORRIBLE SCHOOL.
This school is horrible. Sub par staff including the principal who are all ill equipped to deal with children that have problems. School looks like a prison, children are treated like prisoners and suspended left and right. Staff has the poorest communication skills I have ever encountered in 14 years as being a parent. Do not send your kids to this school even if MPS tells you this is your only choice. Basically if they do not like your child, meaning they can't properly handle your child's problems, they will purposely provoke and or make it so that they expel your child. This school is sad and I am disgusted with the staff especially the scatter brained principal.
