The school would improve if the location was not on 18th street and Central Ave.

There is a huge lack of leadership at this school. The principal does not do discipline and this is school where kids need to learn discipline. The parent post of April 2010 hit the nail on the head.

They need to treat every student fairly, not just a sector. Not a good school for children in ese. Most of the teachers are there just for the paycheck and not for the students. The principal is not often at school. Children get bullied and then no one believes them. And a lot of bad things going on. Except for a couple of teachers that are good, the school is a mess and the education they provide too.

As aparent ofsan ESE I've been involved in numerous years of my childs education. he has been retainedfor 1 year and has taken 2 years to show little but almost no progress is this a lack of parental involvement? I'd say no it is due to the lack of help in the classroom, more visiting is required fromparent's along with PTA involement. All education is followed home attentiveness.

My son was in this schools ESE classes since first grade and I feel that the teachers that they have there aren't well trained to meet the need of students with learning disabilities. That is why I've sought another kind of school for my child.
