This school is an abomination ! If your student does all his/her work then they will still have a bad time, but not nearly as bad as it will be if they ever mess up or get singled out. Our son isn't perfect, and as soon as he mildly stepped out of line, there was no possible way he could have corrected it and made things better for himself. If the teachers start to dislike any one student, that student is marked and they will stop treating him/her with respect. Every parent teacher conference was full of non-constructive criticism and felt more like we were in a court trial. So basicly, if your student is a rich goodie two-shoes, they will have a much easier time at this school, but still a bad time. If your student is poor with normal misbehavior, it will make life a nightmare for both the student and the parents. I completely agree with the review someone wrote below about the double standards
My son has attended Pershing for 6 years now beginning in Kindergarten. It is a wonderful school! A caring faculty and administration make the education experience all that much more appealing to me as a parent. My child is no angel and I have been to school for good and bad behaviors. I have seen the teacher take charge and help to make my child into the responsible 5th grader he is today. He cannot wait to start Middle School at Pershing next year.
Parents, if you enjoy seeing double standards in action, being lied to and lectured by school officials, and generally being treated like the stuff you scrape off your shoes, this is the school for your children!
