This school is very old and the staff is very detached and impersonal. They operate like robots and there is no student accountability for grades. They let the kids make up all kinds of work when they're just being lazy and it seems to be more about teachers ratings in school grants and the kids actually learning. A lot of the teachers don't even seem to care to be there. This is kind of standard for Harlem schools.
The school and teachers are caring and concern about the children, but the teachers give too much leniency to turning assignments in. My son needs to learn how to do his work and turn it in when it is due. The teachers gave him too many opportunities to do and turn assignments in. He is in sixth grade and should learn to pay the consequences of not doing his work and turning it in on time. It is okay the first nine weeks, but, for the rest of the year he needs to show responsibility. I am trying to teach him at home with his homework and chores. Please help me teach him to do what he is suppose to do and when he is suppose to do it. Thank you.
