This school and among others of this district are taking small freedoms away. At the beginning of the year they told parents that kids cannot walk in groups bigger than 4. Can you believe this? On Halloween, my kid got sent back because he was wearing a "mask" when all he was wearing was a mustache and glasses with absolutely no face paint. Where are the kids freedom of expression on Halloween? ?. They also have to present their ID everyday to enter. This school feels like a prison for children. Ive also noticed that they have adopted a new writing book sponsored by A&E and the History Channel. I dont know how I feel about the Media meddling in public school education.
Some teachers just don't care about the students who attend this school. Some teachers even accuse the students of cheating when they do well and accuse them of being lazy when they don't do well. Some teachers openly favor students while openly embarrassing other students.
School has not made any improvements in over 25 years. When it is cold and rainy students have to huddle under exposed outdoor hallways, while administrators are in their warm comfortable offices and classrooms. When it's hot Students suffer outside while administrators and teachers are in their cool offices and classrooms. There are no lockers for students, forcing them to carry around their heavy backpacks.
