As a parent waiting in the office the afternoon announcer was positive and enthusiastic reinforcing character qualities. A student came in and turned on $50 thru had found outside the office. Great integrity
Not sure who these parents are who rate the school less than amazing. The staff is outstanding. They always strive and go out of their way to help. Teachers are dedicated to the children they teach. They even come in on weekends and Spring Break to teach the kids. Administrators are extremely hands on. They we in the building walking and visiting classrooms.
The best part of this school us the magnet program. Being a Museums Magnet allies the children museum experiences I wish I had as a student myself
It's a great school
My child studies here. The teachers hearts are in the right place but the school itself is disorganized. You can tell the staff is treated less than professional by the administration. There is much need for remodeling and extra programs such as sports, music and even arts. The school has potential but the lack of parent involvement is detrimental to that. It is also very overcrowded.
This school is in desperate need of help in all aspects of their administration. Low funding from the county and the neighborhood,in addition to the fact that the majority of parents are of low income and do not speak english makes for a very difficult situation for the educators across the board. Those factors combined, in addition to many others, are not conducive to a healthy learning environment. Currently over 95% of the school is on reduced and/or free breakfast and/or lunch and qualify for head-start and after care and reduced rates, or at no cost to the parents. These facts only prove that the school is a D-F school, not because of the faculty, but because of the lack of funds desperatley needed by these children for the best education they can possibly get given their situations individually and as a community.
