The school management needs work, I believe if you have key people with good qualities and very good managing skills, it will make everyone work harder and better. If our kids are going to compete in a more complex and sophisticated marketplace in their futures, they need the best effort from parents and school.

Yes the school is still growing and there are still some adjustments to be made, but overall I think that it is a good school. The teachers expectations are high for the students and I believe that that is important. Yes, parents complain that students get to much HW or that it isn't a good school, but it is those same parents that I have seen who don't take a part in their childs education, who do not cooperate or meet with the teacher to help get there child back on track. As with any school yes it has a few quirks to work out, but overall it is a good school and I believe that despite the chaos credit must be given to the teachers for working with the students and pushing them so that they succeed! Isn't that what we want from our kids to be successful?
Pro's: Sound teaching of core academics; my child had an excellent teacher and did very well. Con's: Poor organization and communication; also funding problems evident impacting physical environment, teacher training, and availability of materials to effectively teach beyond core subjects
This school is always filthy, classrooms and bathrooms are cleaned when parents complain. This school belongs in the inner city not in this area. It is underfunded, teacher/student turnover is tremendous. Academically it leaves much to be desired. The only reason students stay is because all other schools in the area are overcrowded.
