The students at this school lack total and complete respect for teachers, other students, administrators, and themselves. The administration does NOTHING to control the student discipline, and dis-empowers teachers to do their job. They give them all kinds of busy work (common core requirements, constant paperwork, etc.), but does nothing for them to support them when it comes to student discipline. Students regularly say to teachers , "F___ You", when they receive the most basic of requests. The administration's response, "what are you NOT doing in your class that is CAUSING this student to behave in such a manner?" In other words, it is all the teachers fault and with this strategy, if you can call it that, the administration can continue to go on thinking there is no problem. By far the worst problem is the administration's choice to keep students in this school that are clearly dangerous, unsafe and mentally unstable. This is a total disregard for the safety and security of students and staff. There have been past incidences of teachers and students getting injured because of this, and the administration just sweeps it under the rug. Do not have your child attend here!

Not what it use to be...A far cry from it! It was a place to get a good education and structured discipline-now it is a shadow of both. With an administration that has the backbone of a willow tree. And their concern for students' afterschool activities is almost non-existent. I once came as soon as I could leave work and found the office closed(before 3:30). Since moved to Indiana and the school there are total different- starred schools with afterschool programs and administrator that stay to help supervise the building activites! All the new construction doesn't mean a thing unless there is a strong base to build on- Rickover no longer has that strong base. A pity for the teachers and children!
