After taking a poll (for my own personal knowledge), I've concluded that the teachers at this school are merely in it for the paycheck. They do not care (at least the ones I have come in contact with) and my perception is, that they are more concerned with their "You think you bad? Well I'm badder!" image to get around to educating the children.
The one thing my child learned from attending this school was to do EVERYTHING necessary to pass her classes to ensure she did not have to spend one extra second there. She was determined to make it out of there to never return.
My child hates this school. I hate this school. The teachers talk to the students as though they are equals; therefore, causing the students to be disrespectful; and in turn the teachers, principal and staff speak to the parents as though they do not deserve to be respected. Its a no wonder the community suffers from crime.
i Used to Go Here A Long time ago i miss my favorite teachers lol It Used to be good but i think it probably got worse due to all the gang members living around the communities but who can determine how life goes only thing teachers are capable of is what they can handle something in there range but Mrs White,Ms Roberson, Mrs Mitchell, Ms Brown, Ms Carlisle, Ms Johnson i think they did a good teaching me when i was there but the school overall like teachers other then them i remember one teacher used to be funny in class saying stuff like "Simple Shannon" i forgot if he was talking to a student but it was funny in the Pre-K area I Remember Mr Allen From way back before South 17th He used to be a principal at George Washington carver when people used to try and jump me Compare South 17th to George Washington G.W is worse be lucky if your kid doesn't get bullied before the 3rd grade over there i used to live across the street from the school had to run cause i didn't know how to fight everyday at lunch time but i do see why the rating of the school is 2 out of 10 but look where its at you cant expect it to be some princeton in the ghetto you get what you get the way jersey is
The one bad experience I have is that my daughter study in this school. Teachers who had not been bad, except the last one is I'm not convinced, but that school personnel should work on a farm and not a school. They are rude, security smoke in the school gate and next to the children, talk with attitude to children and not to mention the vice principal who is always screaming and looking owed and not paid . Where will be the principal ... sorry for the mothers who continue to have their children there ... Thank God it's the last year of my daughter's school in that school
I think that the school has great potential under the leadership of Mr. Wright. However I feel that the teacher commitment and dedication to teaching the children and providing them with a strong curriculum should be challenged. I feel that the children's mind are not being challenged enough and therefore it will continue to allow them to achieve below average. I feel that the teachers should be re-evaluated and that as principal he should not feel that just because they were good 10 years ago means that they are the same caring and strong teachers prepared and ready to send forth strong minds and bodies today. Don't lose focus on the children re-evaluate your staff. I have children that quote remarks from one of their teachers and she seems famous for saying I don't care at least once a day as it relates to things they should feel comfortable asking her.
We have a very good Principal. The success of this school is primary because of his leadership. He is concern about his faculty and especially his students. He tries to meet all the needs of the teachers when it comes to teaching tools. He send all his teachers to seminars to enhance their teaching ability.
