This school is an embarrassment to the East Side and South Bend. It is primarily male ~65-70% and minority ~75% although the area is ~10% minority. It ranks in the state in the~ 24th % from the bottom out of 100%. Last year I was called by the school nurse at least 5 times because boys hit and left marks on my daughter. This year there are only 12 girls in the 7th grade with regular grades and 10 in honors. My daughter passed math last year in the achievement test but this year has an F. 27 kids in the class 5 girls -she will not ask questions. Who did this to our community school? I am ready to withdrawal her! School Board and administration - Shame on you!
The administration of the school is very impressive. The atmosphere is welcoming and the parents are assisted in a professional manner. The teachers are personable and helpful. Overall, I would say that the leadership is very strong and professional. The principal and her team are wonderful.
