It's sad to see the negative comments on here regarding View Park Accelerated Charter Middle School. When you received your "enrollment" packet and attended the orientation, you as the parent knew right then what was going to be required from you and how rigorous our program is going to be. If you were just expecting to drop your child off at school to let the staff "teach and raise" them, then your priorities as a parent aren't in order. Not returning calls, emails or notices sent home to you by the staff is not how we teach at VPP. We are not a "DROP OFF BABYSITTING SERVICE", we are here to "EDUCATE YOUR CHILD" and "YOU" as the "PARENT" must do your part (i.e. VOLUNTEERING, showing up for your scheduled parent conferences, attending back to school night, attending mandatory PIM meetings, etc.) to make sure that your child is on the right path to "SUCCESS"!!!!!!!! "STOP BLAMING THE SCHOOL and STAFF" for your child's "BEHAVIOR and ACADEMIC STANDING" and do your part as the "PARENT and GET INVOLVED IN YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION"!!!!!!!!

The two students I know who were forced to go to this school hated it for many reasons. They felt the instuction was inferior, the student body undisciplined and unmotivated academically, and the general atmosphere very negative. There was vicious bullying of the few serious students in the school. They didn't like the segregation and the attitude of intolerance that it fostered. Both these students are gifted, highly motivated students who feel that the time spent at this school was wasted time academically and extremely negative in many ways. One says that it was the worst time of her life due to jealous bullying.

I'e been attending View Park for 3 years no. This school is great when it comes to academics. The teachers go above and beyond and the curriculum is more advanced than average. The only thing is that the students are rude, unwelcoming, and in a word, ghetto (for lack of a better term). And also, there is no diversity. It's basically Black kids being taught by White teachers. This school does not live up to it's reputation.

I would agree with the parent dated December 14, 2007. If I would have known what I know now I would have made another choice. It's definitely safer than other schools in the area but that's about it. I also must add to in the school it's not what your child knows it's who you know.

I have two daughter that now attend view park middle charter school and I have to say the school is great. The teachers are not only dedicated but they go above and beyond too make sure that the students have the skills and tools that are needed to suceed. My daughters are so smart and have learned so much since attending viewpark. So if you can even get your child in the school, this will be one of the best choices you have made in your life.

My children have been attending View Park for the past 6 years. I believe I would change how they used to be about nurturing and not leaving a child behind and now it is about numbers and how many more schools they can open up. I believe they should work on improving what they have so far. As for the staff, I have volunteerd in the office several times and see how they are treated by the parents and the children. The parents are in denial about how their children really are when they are at school and the parents are extremely rude to the staff as well. I have seen them get cussed out by parents and I have seen them deal with stuff I would not be able to deal with. This is a two-way street. There is no excuse for rudeness but they have feelings to.

I agree with the previous writters. My daughter has attended VPP for the past 3 years and in comparison to the surrounding choices it is a much safer school which is why I give it 3 stars but to judge the staff of the school I would only give it 1 star. I can't believe how rude most of these people are and my 1st thought is always...if they talk to me this way how are they talking to the kids. They are just very rude!

The teachers try to do their best but unfortunately are not qualified and believe me it shows. The personnel, including the CEO are arrogant, unfriendly and and have poor skills. The demise of this school is inevitable.
