Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
June 10, 2015
The teachers are too busy gossiping, or on their phone. The teachers spend more time yelling than teaching.

It's a joke. The principal, Dr. Tucker is non-communicative with parents and refers everyone to other staff members. The programs that they have in place are not well executed. I would go so far as to say the IB program is just for show, and doesn't give you the sense that anything is being accomplished. They don't encourage cursive writing and the students don't have spelling tests. The majority of the children behave so badly that it is frightening. I'm getting my son out!

I cheritha Conner is very displeased with this school. I want my child out of this school so bad. Dr. Tucker need to find out how to make it better for our children so they can learn and this school ratings can go up. My child enjoy this school but the teaching is not all that great classes need less student and the school need more educational programs for our children.
