The teachers work really hard to help students meet GLE's. If behavior weren't such an issue the students would fly academically because they have good teachers. However, there not great a disciplining and taking control of the classroom.

This is the second year for my child at Derrick Thomas the 1st year was alright not the best but the second year has gotten worst. I will not advise anyone to send their child there. They are a big disappointment, the school just doesn't have it all together and the administration....Horrible.
