This school is one of the worst I have ever experienced, there are live roaches everywhere, including where the food is served. The dirt and dust around the school is overwhelming, the do not have a custodian at this school. My child has experienced many asthma attacks due to these conditions. The teachers use profanity towards the students, on countless occasions my child has complained to me about this. When the classes got switched to advanced and normal classes the teachers treated the children in the normal class as less, saying that they wear all labeled as ADD, and stating that there class was "just not for the smart kids". The teachers are very rude to students, the dean hits and slaps kids. These hits and slaps are ment to be in a "playful" way but kids have complained about them getting hurt due to it. The teachers call children out in class in front of there peers if they do not understand. This school has done nothing but badly effect my child's learning and self-esteem. I shall be removing my child from this school. If you or a friend/relative are considering sending your child to this school, I would advise you to think twice
I went to The Academy for Business and Leadership Education to see if it would be the right fit for my fifth grader. I had heard nothing but good things about the school from other parents whose children had been classmates of my son - as a matter of fact, one mother was so excited about A.B.L.E, she kept me in the produce section of our local grocery store singing the praises of the school. I was already unhappy with the environment in our zoned school, and was nervous about what I'd heard about the middle school my son would be heading to next year. I was happily surprised at the smiles and friendly greetings that we received as the principal took my son and I around the campus. There is something wonderful about seeing happy students during class times! I was impressed by the dedication to education, as well as the creative ways the teachers handle their curriculum. I did not hesitate to transfer my son from his zoned school to A.B.L.E. and his excitement when I picked him up after his first day was enough for me to be confident that we'd made the right choice.
ABLE is has the best environment of any school with which I have worked. The students are engaged, challenged, and respected. The small class sizes encourage more individual attention. It is truly a 'family of learners'.
