This school has poor leadership. I have met with my daughter's teacher, principal, and assistant superindendant to discuss issues like; 4th grade class receives no homework and teacher refusing to provide me any update on my child's progress on a regular behavior. The princial scheduled a meeting to discuss these issues. When I arrived for the meeting she did not recall the purpose. Instead, she scheduled the meeting for a completely different topic. Our daughter's teach explained to us that she is busy with her school work in the evenings as she to attends school at Kean & she does not believe the kids will turn in homework assignments. The principal recommended transferring to another class to resolve the issue. In the new class, she was struck by another student. This happended because the new teacher did not escort kids during dismissal. If the principal does not care then why should the teachers. There's so much more to say but I will stop there. Poor leadership leads to poor academics. My child will no longer attend this school.
This school is absolutely horrible! My son attended this school. The principal is absolutely disrespectful and should not even be a principal. She is rude and has a terrible attitude. She does not care about students who have any kind of difficulties in school. The school is disorganized and ill-equipped to handle kids that have learning difficulties. The school psychologist is the ONLY person there who is good. He works hard to help families and do right by the students. Thankfully we were able to transfer our son to a better school Children cannot flourish there. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!! Even if you have to homeschool or move to another place, DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD THERE!
This school is one of the worst school my daughter has attend. There is no organization as far as the staff is concerned, and I want my daughter out of that school, so she can get the proper education she deserve.
This school is o.k. First, the interim principal can be harsh and nasty at times. The vice-principal is nice. They have very good after-school programs! Second, the secretaries are very nasty; even downright rude to many parents. They haven't treated me badly but I have seen how they treat other parents. The secretaries will ignore you when you walk in the office. You have to practically throw up a flare to get their attention. Third, parent involvement is very low. The PTA meetings and workshops are virtually deserted. A huge chunk of the students live in the projects down the street. Fourth, the school does not have an AC (only in the office). Finally, the school is woefully over-crowded. The fourth and fifth grade students have go to the BOE for classes. My son's K teachers were great!
