O. J. Semmes Elementary School 1

My experience was horrible, the teacher called my son names and constantly embarrassed him in front of the students. The principal didn't care and refused to allow me to sit in the class saying this would make the teacher uncomfortable. His second teacher at the school did not believe in giving children homework and my son did not progress at all. Another teacher in the school told me to move him to another school, she would never let her child attend OJ Semmes. This school is horrible the teachers don't care and the principal seems lost, poor leadership.
