My child attended this school since kindergarten, she is now in 3rd grade. When we first started in was excellent. the teachers were strong, their was a lot of parent participation. Like with everything, the environment has changed, new teachers, less parent participation but they are working hard to keep the standard this school is known for. My daughter loves this school. They also have a determined hard working PTO Board. The principal, and staff are great.
Cornerstone School/Lincoln-King Academy is a great institution for all children K-8th grade. We have a great Principal/Leader Ms. C. Brown who treats all 500 + children as her very own. My child has been a student since Pre-K. He is now in the 3rd grade and his skills have been enhanced and he has learned so much especially in reading, math and writing.
This school is the exact opposite of what this teacher has posted below. The Dean of Students is arrogant and has no control over the students. He may have been a good teacher but that's the extent of it. The behavior issues were still an issue and the academics is poor. Parents, seek elsewhere for your children.
Our Dean of Students has done an exceptional job of turning behavior issues around as well turning what used to be a high school into an elementary school. Academic expectations remain high as the school year comes to a close. Additionally, teacher morale pushes the students to achieve at a high level as they serve to better educate the youth of Detroit. Teachers are held to these same high standards and teach with a great deal of patience and love for the children, parents and community.
This school has really went downhill since the charter. The teachers do not care about the children and have no patience. They expect perfection from the children and not the same from the teachers. The middle school children has not had a math teacher all school year and it's ridiculous. The only form of discipline that is used is suspension for things such as getting out of their chair, talking in the lunch room, and other little things. The dean is students is a disgrace, along with the school.
