I think this school is unbelieveable. I do not agree with not involving and making parents accountable for their children. I do not like the staff nor the way the have no respect for my child. I have brought my child from a township to a public school and 30 days in it has been nothing but regret for my family and I. My son does not enjoy school anymore and he does not like the staff either. I have written complaints and have called school over theiving from my child on mulitple occasions and no response or explanation is given. There is no responsible adult there th buck-up and take responsibility for our "future leaders." I am slowly dreading a future of under-acheivers and mis-guided youth. Where do we go from here?

I love school #46.This is the only school that finally did test my son and find his learning disability.Now he is finally getting the help he needs.And let me add the teachers are great!

This school is not equipped to handle special needs children. The school doesn't have enough teachers and doesn't have a school psychologist to test the special needs children within a timely matter, they hold these children back for one or two years sometimes longer before they complete the testing. This procedure is unfair to the children. The teacher ratio to the number of children is way to high. That is why we have so many children failing to learn what is taught.

In addition, high schools were graded on four-year (on-time) graduation rates and college and career readiness indicators including Advanced Placment exam results and industry certification exam results.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
