This school is filled with bullies. Teachers and students are bullying every day and no one is doing anything about it. Waiting for my child to get out of class is a terrible experience. Most of the kids are physically abusive towards each other. Girls are hitting boys, boys are hitting each other, and adults just turn a blind eye. Profanity is their main choice of communication. The bus drivers are all always screaming at the kids while they hang out of the windows of the bus spitting on kids walking by, or throwing items out of the bus. The security is friendly but thats it. There is NO safety. They lock the gates but thats the only measure they take to secure the school. The school counselor is not helpful in any way. She delays call backs, meetings, and NO results. Always just a waste of time trying to get something resolved. The classes are overcrowded and the assistant principal lies about other teachers assisting the overcrowded classes.
I was a student there from 2001-2003 as a Pre-Kinder to 3rd grade and back then it was really great! Teachers were loving, kids were nice, I had best friends, no bullying as far as where I was standing, and it was a great community. Don't know about now, since times change but it along with YMCA was so wonderful when I was there
There is a bullying problem at the school, but this is due to no cooperation from the parents. There is also no implementation of anti-bullying program. On the other hand, my children have been lucky to have excellent teachers. The principal spends time getting to know the kids and is a great leader.
Horrific bullying problem, which is ignored by the staff. Miami-Dade Public Schools anti-bullying program has not been implemented at this school. Some teachers are exceptional. New AP lacks common courtesy towards students, staff and parents. For parents with boys, I recommend reading 'Raising Cain - Protecting the Emotional Life of a Boy.'
I love the school and the teachers. They have the best interest in helping and making sure the kids learn and understan there grade and age. The only thing i dont like is that there is no extra activities involving all the kids of there own age. Like dances especially for the 5th graders.
