My son has been going to this school for 5 years and he has mature a great deal . The afterschool program is excellent, because they don't only assist the school with their homework, but get them involved other activities. The only thing is that I am never aware of PTA for the parents other than teacher-parent conferences.

This is a good school , but the Principal need to be more active. As far as visiting classes, recreation time etc. More parents need to come out , to meetings. Over all the school can can get a ( C-) from a parent.

I am a former student of Dr. MLK, although it is not located in the best neighborhood the teachers are dedicated to making a change, if the students are willing they are there to help. Currently I am a sophmore at the University of Maryland, College Park and if it were not for the solid foundation built by my elementary school teachers who knows where I would be. I am thankful to have met such influential people there.
