Not enough homework.
This school is a joke. they are very strict and don't let parents to visit the class environment which indicates the school is always in constant struggle to hide the horrible class situation.
My child was bullied by a student for almost 2 years and I reported to one of the Vice Principals. She assured me it would be handled and it wasn't taken care of. So the next school year towards the end my child was attack by the bully. I reported to the Principal Ms. Caroline and she showed no empathy nor sympathy and said my first complaint was never recorded. I then spoke to the office of the Superintendent Ms Olga Huglemyer and my complaints feel on deaf ears. I'm disappointed in the school which is majority made of people of color and bullying is not taken seriously. I have moved since then and I hope this review is read as a cautionary tale.
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!
