I would not recommend any parent placing their child in this school. The principal is on a power trip and is not there for the best if the children. Don't get me wrong there are a few good teachers but the politics of this school are ridiculous. Do not send your children here.
From what I have read about this school recently, they have an extraordinary extra-curricular boxing program.
This school is awful. There are some great teachers but the others are horrible. My baby is in 4th grade and is at a first grade reading level and she's not in special ed. The kids are not disciplined appropriately. There not carefully watched on the play ground. Staff has bad attitudes with parents. I DO NOT RECOMMEND WEEMS The parents are there all the time but staff makes them clean all day.
L. B. Weemes Elementary School is a great inner-city, multi-ethnic public school. It has an ethical administration that puts children first. Its dedicated teachers work long hours to provide an excellent public education. Parent involvement is encouraged, welcomed and rewarded.
The children, they are hungry for learning and we all must help them to succeed and become productive citizens of this wonderful country.
This school has excellent, committed teachers. Children with involved parents do quite well.
The teachers really seem to care about the children. The test scores have risen each year for the past several years.
