this school is by far the worse school I have ever heard of. Please send your child to a different school.

I hate this school my kids always coming home all bruised up because their getting jumped by other kids I went up there to tell the principal she don't do shot but sit there and laugh
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 29, 2013

Unfortunately this is a school that is set up for failure. I have 3 children going to this school and have had numerous of problems from other students and staff. I have had multipal meetings asking to have my children moved to another safe classroom setting where they might have a slight chance of learning and were denied. They are understaffed and over populated. There is no hope or help at this school location and as a parent the expectations I have for my children were let down on EVERY aspect. The school is unsafe and somebody needs to go in and do a investigation on the staff and administration and school curriculum. My 1st grader came home with a paper from his teacher that was list of all the "bad" kids on it with the stuff they do and say and was filled with cuss words. To give a child this paper that is marked with cuss words in no envelope is so unacceptable unprofessional and inappropriate. And is there some student teacher confidentiality? This was a sheet of paper with all the different "bad" students as she stated on it. This school should be shut down. They are in violation of so many rules. They get no stars.

My child is in Kindergarten and has shown demonstrable growth in her verbal and writing skills. Her teacher and the administration clearly care about her and all the pupils at the school.
