This school is falling apart ... in every way imaginable. Half of the building was condemned a couple of years ago for structural failures; the student lockers never shut properly; and the air quality reports released by the school department were unsatisfactory. It is no wonder the faculty are openly unmotivated to help struggling students when they do not get the support from the administration themselves. School district offers a "parent portal", but claims it cannot get its teachers to use it (making it useless). This school is the ongoing running joke of a school department that is itself a joke.
The principal ignores students that need extra help and does absolutely nothing against bullying a girl broke into my daughter's locker and smashed her Kindle. When brought to the principal and assistant principals attention they did absolutely NOTHING!! This school is a joke
Teachers and staff seem to do whatever they want. Many of the teachers show they don't care about the success of the kids. They pay attention to the kids all ready doing well. My daughter does well in school but it's because I help her and get her the resources she needs not because the school cares - at least that has been my exerience. Calls are not always returned, and the staff has a very bad attitude, rude when you question anything as if they do no wrong. The whole Haverhill public school system needs an overhaul. The previous principal was terrible and this one is only slightly better. I'm happy that my daughter is in 8th grade and will be leaving soon. She will NOT be going to no Haverhill High either! It's sad but now I understand why so many students drop out of Haverhill schools.
What ever happened to zero tolerance for bullies??? Not at this school.
I love this school! The teachers are great and the students learn everything!
Good school for all 6-8 students. It might have a reputation for not having the funds to support the students, but in reality, they just got new school books for everyone. Plus, the teachers are all there to help the children.
Good School. Gives great opportunities to go to Washington, DC, Maine and New York. just gt new textbooks for all grades.
