I went to this school for 6th grade in 2006 and it was one of the worst I have ever been to, if not the worst. If you hate your kids then send them to this prison (oh sorry I meant school). I was treated horribly. Things might have changed since then but it was one of the worst times in my life. The boys & girls club next door is not any better.
We are really pleased with my daughter's teachers. Any issues we have had, have been over the over testing that is mandated by the State and Federal Governments, not the teachers. I too found that a lot of parents do not show up or involve themselves. It is sad, but it indicative of the community which is mostly middle and lower income families.
