School Official Point of View

Children are taught more than the basic educational standards. They experience real life situations and complete hands on projects. Commonwealth doesn't just talk about it, they live it!

Former teacher at this school and would NOT recommend it for any teacher or child. Unsafe environment, office staff sometimes not present and phones are not in rooms. MEAP scores ridiculously low.

Commonwealth Community Development Academy Is clearly a FAILING SCHOOL! I would not recommend this school to anyone unless your looking for a a babysitter! The administrators and their practices are terrible! The conditions of building aren't the best for students or staff members! They are ranked as one of the worst schools in Detroit! Not one of their students passed the MEAP successfully which is evidence that they are deficient in many areas! Overall, if you want your child to have a valuable learning experience don't send them to Commonwealth Community Development Academy!

I really don't even know where to start but please take this review seriously. I am a former teacher and for all teachers looking for a job? Keep looking. For all the parents looking for a school? Keep looking. Teachers: you can do better. I promise. I worked there for many years because I got comfortable and was scared to look, but there were only empty promises from administration and very poor working conditions. Parents: do NOT continue to enroll your students here. Please. Yes, they pay money for good programs, but they don't provide teachers with what they need, they don't even know what their teachers are doing most of the time! Behavior is horrible and even the best behaved student becomes out of control. There are days that there isn't even anyone inthe office. They are so lucky that there has not been an emergency. They were on the worst schools list by the newspaper for a reason. You can see this in their MEAP scores. It is inexcusable. This school needs to be shutdown, and Eastern needs to wake up, do a site visit, interview teachers, and they will see past the smoke and mirrors.

Worst school every!!!!!I could not wait till the school year ended.The staff had know clue about what was going on.There was only one sixth grade class....yes all the sixth graders from the entire school were in that one class.My kid didnt learn enything.

i have no words for this school their programs are okay and compared to other schools around the neighborhood its good because of the lack of competition i am so happy for this school but this school is not all peach and creams its a small school with small issues which can be handled i can see this school is trying to improve and maybe it will i can't say the bad outweighs the good but my experience here have been rocky for reasons i will not tell you i not saying its a good or bad school but just know this is the time to be a gambler either you put a child in this school and trust they will be okay or trust they will be okay and they won't be okay its an investment but maybe its an investment worth investing in,this school was once great but it went down hill in like 2008 but its getting better and i believe it will once again be good i don't agree with some of this reviews unless you go to this school you will be an outsider and trust me its not all peach and creams like some of this reviews are trying to say and i really hope this school becomes a school of excellence i have memories here good and bad and i will pray for this school

My children attended this school from kindergarten, and they received an excellent academic foundation. I absolutely love the Success for All reading program and would recommend it to anyone. My kids learned the roots of reading in kindergarten and the program builds each year with my child s growth. My children are outstanding readers and writers because of it. I also like the staff s genuine interest in working with every student. They don t just kick kids out of school for convenience, like most other schools that don t wants to deal with our kids. They truly believe in No child being left behind .

I am a former Commonwealth parent. I loved Commonwealth. My kids went on to great high schools because of what they learned there and are successful. The curriculum is good, like Success for All and Everyday Math. I also like they way they discipline the kids. If you want your child to learn go there. If you don't care you won't. The staff is mostly good too.
