The school is now ok I guess. I had a child there a few years back. They had a male fourth grade teacher who taught from an African Centered perspective and my daughter learned so much. My daughter and other students loved him. I was later told he found a job closer to home in Detroit. However , he did wake me up to the fact that African American children need to be taught from that perspective. Like Jewish students, Arab students, and all other students are taught from their perspective first and they are thriving. You don't see them getting a 2 out of 10 rating and have parents say the Principal leadership is great.. It's the leadership that drives the car. Now when my daughter and neighborhood students were attending there was a different Principal. This one might be okay but let the children focus on and learn from what make them great first, themselves. If Anyone knows Bro. Render tell him that his parents of his fourth grade class miss him and love him very much and thanks for teaching us that very valuable lesson.
The principal leadership is outstanding but there are many problems with the after school programs. There are no advanced classes for advanced students and the drop off and pick up of students is terrible but alot of that is due to poor parent involvment.
The level of academic programs is average. There are some extracurricular music programs. The extra curricular activities are an asset to the school, but the social behaviors of the students need tremendous work. The parent participation is very poor,less than 10% attend PCA.
