The curriculum and teaching methods are lacking probably due to the economic problems with the district. Overall, this school has funding issues and because it does not utilize other resources within the community, it will continue to suffer. This school does not welcome parent participation. The management staff needs to build consistency throughout the organization while including resources within the community. Morover, there is little organization and planning skills among management. The disorganization of the management team is very apparent across the entire school. There are a few good teachers at the school but the staff overall is just doing it for a paycheck and does not have a passion for teaching.

Since the appointment of the principal, Mr. williams, Posen has become a fantastic school. The teachers dedicated individuals and truly believe in education. The Certified Teacher Assistants are knowledgeable and contantly receive updated training. Parents constantly visit the school to check on their children and even take classes to assist their children with homework (especially math). Mr. Williams is open to helping parents with their school courses after school on his own time. Posen deserves the rating of 5 stars out of 5 stars. Keep it up Posen.

School is doing wonders for the students. Other parents need to get involved in their students' lives. It's not up to the teachers alone.

School is doing a good job for the type of students that go to the school. Most of the kids get help and attention from the school only. Most parents do nothing when the kid is a problem for the school.

this is the worst school my child has ever attended. teachers swear at the kids daily. some teachers sit on the phone with their boyfriends instead of teaching. then talk to the kids about their boyfriend instead of teaching. teachers do what they want with no fear of discipline. this is not the district you want your kids in.
