I'd like to give the school a higher rating because of the attentiveness and obvious care the principle and teachers feel for the kids at Booker T., because of the massive behavior problems at this school I can't give it a higher score. There are opportunities available at this school that are not available at other schools in the area but those programs are completely taken for granted by the students. There are a lot of violent behavior problems at this school. A lot of time is taken away from the teachers by disruptive students, the students that want to learn suffer. The teachers care, the principle works very hard to improve conditions and does the best she can under the circumstances, but neither she or the teachers can fix the inherent problems of the neighborhood. The music and art programs are here, but there is just too much time devoted to keeping the students in line. The school has great support staff that communicate well with parents. Teacher communication is dependent on the teacher, the teachers that do keep in contact are typically the ones with better success with the students. After school help is available as well as many extracurricular activities.
My school is greater then people think. Teacher listing to what parents say to help them teach better. Teachers are outstanding because they work after school when a student needs help. The principal is very nice but strick.
Booker t.Washington is a great school.I went there for 6th,7th,and 8th grade and i now attend baltimore city college high school.I think all the teachers are very caring and they make sure learn.My years attendind booker t washington was the best and i would trade anything to go back.Also there police out there making sure no one is hurt.And if your child is in a class with bad kids you should know your child will be okay because they should lead not be followers.That is what they teach you to be.It is a very good art school.
I am a 8th grader student. My opinion is that Booker T is the worst school that I have ever been to. The halls stay crowded, the students make the teachers want to quit. The windows are dirty the building looks terrible and in the inside it looks like an abandon house, some of the windows are broken and some of them can not even open. Also I would like to be able to learn well. It's not challenging at all you can not learn with a lot of confusion going on in the class/school and beleive it or not thats a fact see for yourself that is all I had to say
