My kids have gone to this school for several years, my daughter did ok here with Mrs.Shepard, who was probably the best teacher this school has ever seen (she is all about education and plans on attending Harvard so she works very hard all the time) My son who is not so intent on his education is having a hard time and the teachers are horrible!! not one time this year has he gotten a " good job" or even a smile on his work!! His teacher makes him feel like a terrible student/person. She is very rude and curt about everything. We had a problem with a bully and after reporting it to teachers and principal nothing was done, I finally told my son he could fight back to protect himself. My sister also had several problems with her kids here and moved just to get them out of this school, I am doing the same soon!
This school is terrible! I am a single mother and as soon as I can I will take my kids to a school where at least the teachers teach. I'm angry that my daughter has failed, but still passed every year she has attended this school. I have forced testing and no one is willing to help, Also, the race card is used A LOT as this school. The principle is NEVER there, he runs three school and this is last priority. English is almost a second language in this school, which is unacceptable! They have no Christmas assembles, nothing. It's a shame. If your looking for your kid to fail and not succeed then this is the school!!!
