M. L. King School 1

This is my son's first year attending the school this year. We relocated from the South and I must say I was better off not moving up North. The teachers do not care much about the students. The principal does NOTHING to address any concerns you may have. The school seems very unsafe. My child does not ride the school bus. I drop him off and pick him up. I walk into the school and hear profanity from students of ALL ages. They are not corrected. I dont teach my son those things at home so sending him to school he learns otherwise. its sickening! this is his first and final year at this school!

This is the most poorly run school I have seen in a long time. Middle school students are out of control and the principal and assistant principal do nothing about it. I am afraid for the safety of the children and staff.

My daughter has been a student at MLK since kindergarten. The past two years have been a real challenge for her. She has gone through 5 teachers and several substitute teachers. This has taken a dramatic effect on her school performance, social involvement, mental well-being and her attitude. I am tired of working hard with my child at home and sending her to school so that she can 'unlearn' the ethical, moral and academic standards that we practice in my home everyday. I do not allow her to participate in school activities because she comes home complaining of the dirty mouths and the bullying that she has experienced daily. The school is plagued by low parent involvement and The HBOE really needs to evaluate the current status of this school.
