I have/had 2 children in this school. The first one I yanked out and sent him to a different school, and I'm planning on doing the same with my 2nd child.
They hold report cards (homework on report card day also) hostage - forcing the parent to attend the PT conference (possibly taking time off work) or get so frustrated the parent has to involve the principal to obtain the report card weeks later. Also the children receive a 0 grade if the parents aren't able to show up.
The school will also call over every single thing (including contacting CPS over minor incidences). Many parents have complained about this issue.
There really doesn't seem to be much organization as well. Every other school in Newark has homework and other access online. Hawkins forces the parents to come into the school (at the schools convenience). Very frustrating.
My Parents, Their parents, And I, Have Graduated From Hawkins, And All Seven Of My Baby's Will graduated from Hawkins, All Though Hawkins Isn't The Same as When I Was Their . But I have Faith For Hawkins And Now Since All New Leader in School I See Hawkins Doing Very Well As Long As The Parent Continue To Work With The Staff With a Positive attitude All Will Be Well <3
Hawkins Street is really in a state of decline. The staff is mostly dedicated and competent, but there is an utter lack of organization and structure on the administrative side that leads to a great deal of behavior problems that negatively impact student achievement and a high degree of frustration amongst the staff
