This school is neglectful with our children. They have ZERO supervision when dismissing their children, a major concern for several years in many areas with far better neighborhoods (where as here they experience GUN shots almost daily in that area). Anyone can come in and retrieve a child as long as the child isnt screaming and kicking they dont even notice you are there. My nephew is Mentally Disabled (mentally retarded, ADHD, Autistic) and we have informed everyone in that school about his needs and the need to do the IEP evaluation so we can move him to a school that will provide him with the education and attention he needs. Unfortunately for us, my sister's cries have been ignored by the teachers, principal and everyone. At this point all his doctors inform us that going to school have decreased his progress by 2 years and he is only 5 years old. When he was in special classes that provided him with the help he needs he was improving. And the only response we receive from anyone in school is why is he missing school (because YOU ALL ARE MAKING THINGS WORSE!!!). I hope I can find someone to help us get there attention so we can remove him from this NEGLIGENT school. HELP!

I love this school because it offers students from challengeing circumstances the excellent opportunity to exploratively study the sciences, maths and technology through its NASA Magnet program. The staff is so dedicated to providing the students with attention, support and encouragement that many of them are deprived of in their homes.
