Lone Hill Middle School is a fantastic school. I am proud to have my student attend there. Although we are just beginning our experience with Lone Hill, we have been met with a principal and staff of caring professionals willing and able to answer all our questions and concerns. I have many friends, of many ethnic backgrounds, whose students have completed Lone Hill with nothing but the highest praise for the school.
The teachers at Lone Hill Middle School does not treat its African American Male student fairly. I've had two young black male students over a four year period attend Lone Hill. The teaching staff is mainly composed of White middle class female teachers, all of the counselors and support staff is White-who are sometimes even rude to you when you systematically call the office to contact teachers about certain incidents involving your child. From my experience, many of the teachers at Lone Hill do not know how to teach or lead middle Inner city black male students, nor do I know if they really care about the under performing student. The P.E. female teachers are very vindictive when grading black male students by systematically grading these students with scores of C-, D's and F's and low scores in citizenship even though these same kids participate on the school's atheletic teams and perform very well outside of the physical education curriculum. I had one teacher accuse one of my son of cheating off of other students in the class for the entire semester and had even asked her entire class to watch the him and report back if any suspicious incidents occured, and there were only two black males in that class out of 32 students at the time. His self esteem was affected by learning that he was the one being watched. Neither did he feel supported by this teacher. The majority of the teachers who I have worked with sterotypes the black male student and label them as 'a bad student' and they will not call or contact, you will have to continue to visit the school to find out. My son felled into the 25th percentile and was eligible for 'no child left behind' program after the first year at Lone Hill, and it wasn't because he wasn't learning; it was because he felt rejected by the teaching staff, and he did not want to seek their help in the classroom because he felt rejected. The principal of the school is very supportive to all parents, and you genuinely feel as though she cares about all of her students, but the staff is not supportive of her desire to reach out to all ethnicities.
