Students are so respectful and so polite. This is by far the best urban school in the state. It is up and coming especially with the new leadership this school year.

Not all, but most. There is one specific teacher that sits and watches the kids bein unruly. She claims she cannot teach due to their behavior. Really? What about the other kids?

Since school started, my child has gotten homework only two times. How am I as a parent supposed to reinforce or help my child with what they are learning in school?

The Spanish speaking parents are catered to and the non Spanish speaking kids get pushed aside.
