My child has been there for 8 months and she has improved a lot on her grades. But I just dont think this school fits her though. They dont go out side much and they are all cramped up in small little class rooms. Im sure glad that this is her first year and only year. I dont think anyone should put there child in a school like that.
The curriculum is fabulous! The teachers and principal are caring and wonderful professionals who work with children regardless of whether they are behind academically.
The school curricular is excellent. The entire focus is on learning and the teachers are dedicated to seeing that the student excells.
The 6 years my child has attended Marcus Garvey have been great. The 10:1 ration has shown to be a very successful learning environemnt for her. She is at least 2 yras ahead of her grade level. The only downside I have found are the sports available to the kids, the shool focuses more on academics.
I continue to be disappointed. There is no parent involvement - i.e. PTA or programs parents can be involved in, the activites are focused on girls, and I've been disappointed with the quality of education. I feel that concepts are not being taught - only memorization. These children can do a lot, but they can't tell you why. I would not recommend this school
My kids have been attending Marcus Garvey for one month, and I truly see a great difference in their cognitive development. They have the desire to read and learn new information, although they are not academically on target, yet, but within the first year they will make a magnificent change. I will give quarterly updates and keep the children, teachers and staff in prayer.
