I'm a former student at this school and I honestly wish I hadn't gone here. I came from a past of being bullied and was hoping for a change. I was so wrong. I was often bullied and nothing was done about it. An altercation between the pe teacher and my mother about a kid who liked to bully me, resulted with me ALWAYS getting a B in her class, no matter how hard I tried or how good I was, I always got a B. The curriculum there for grades 6-8 was just 6th grade material and 3 new concepts. There are no programs there for higher level students or for the sporty students. Disciplinary action against the students who needed it, was never given and the students basically ran the school. In the eighth grade I always told my principal that we needed to prepare for high school, but of course he didn't listen to me and waited until may to realize that we needed to. That same year the teachers would always over exaggerate high school and put us down in some way. My little sister who has been at this school for 5 years is approaching her final year here and my mother (who has had her fair share of anger) is going to put her in connolly for obvious reasons. Don't put your child here. Please.

This is the little school that could! We survived the county trying to close us down for over two years, and during that time we continued to serve the neediest children in our community. This school has the most devoted and hard working teachers you will find anywhere. They always put the children first.
