The principal here is a lost cause. She has a horrible attitude and os clueless. More into entertaining people (especially fathers) more than willing to correct issues with teachers or other students. Seems like children in the urban areas are at a disadvantage already but leadership keeps the that way.

I have a 20+ career in education and I've experienced that Cuffe has something wonderful going on. The principal displays new exciting energy in the hall and it is contagious. So much that the teachers and students have made wonderful gains academically. There's after school programs, like dance, band, volleyball and football. One last thing to mention, the students are great! Yes even in Englewood.

my child started cuffe 3 years ago and her teacher was the best teacher there at the time. when she started 1st grade everything went down hill and so did the school. when she started 2nd grade it got just a little bit better. overall the school really needs help in communicating with the parents about their children more meeting needs to be held. the principal now acts like she doesnt know at thing. the teachers really needs to go back to school some not all!!!! more teachers stepping up to watch the students after school cause its not a safe neighborhood.

Cuffe is a horrible school! The teachers arent qualified at all. They dont provide parents with the opportunity to sit in class rooms just to volunteer for a day. My child will not be returning in the fall I have had enough!

I am a former teacher who came to Cuffe as a substitute teacher. My experience at Cuffe was great! As a sub, one usually experience lack of respect, and no work being completed. However, these students were not disrespectful, allowed me to teach a lesson and complete all of the required assignments and extra assignments due to the cancellation of their gym class. Cuffe is by far a breathe of fresh air!

Very good school. Mr. Jones is like a father to all of the students. All the teachers care about the students and parent involvement is good.

Cuffe is a great school especially when they were in the old building it was a small but comfortable school. The teachers care they really care about the education your child gets. I feel that the big school they just build is still good but I think the teachers feel pressure by it being more students so what can we do. We can step in and help as parents. My children grades have not change they are still doing excellent. Keep up the good work Cuffe infact Cuffe was my school too.
