The school doesn't have a strong approach to homework because they are not learning anything in school. If you as a parent try to be proactive and ask why you child don't have homework. You're told it's the child. No matter what you ask it 's the child. so don't even bother to ask. However they will never bring a issue to you just respond it's the child when you ask a question.
If your child is special needs you can hang it up they are not going to learn anything at the School district. The special education district who came with the superintendent talks like a used car salesman! He is the worst! It's so bad there are really no words to explain how children with IEP's are treated.This is the worst school district in the world.
The leadership is all connected and that why nothing is being corrected at the schools. Example. The vice principle at the high school is the ex-wife of the mayor. The school district is really small and they have one high school, one middle school and about five elementary school. The superintendent is a conman who had brought a whole staff with him for this small district. All of these staff members together make over a half-million dollars. But the teachers waited for years for a raise. This made them bitter and not want to do their job. The children didn't have books. etc. However if they complained they were not getting anything from class. They were written up for being disrespectful. Horrible!
My children have not had one positive thing that has happen in any of the Willingboro schools. The adults are sorry people and they should not be allowed to teach animals. I am sure most of them got jobs because of someone they know and not their working experience. I am not over exaggerating at all! They don't even have the ability to teach proper problem-solving skill because they are too busy being children themselves. If you think I am lying all you have to do is ride past the school and talk to the students. I promise that out of 500 students you may find 25 that think the school is okay. These 25 that think that has been told by the staff that their peers are the problem.
I moved out of Willingboro 2 years ago and this was the best decision I ever made. Maple Shade has provided my children with transportation, books, and teachers who care!!! When my son was 5 they had him on the bus scheduled to Willingboro High. Lost his records and I had to do everything all over again after he was in school for entire year. The STATE OF NJ should hold their heads in shame. Why should our children learn from hand outs...share books but our school tax rise. I am now looking for a larger home and I would not go back to that school district if W E Debois was teaching.
WILLINGBORO AS A WHOLE HAS GONE DOWN. THE SCHOOLS SUCK. I HAVE A CHILD IN WHS AND LOOKING TO GET HIM OUT ASAP. THE TEACHERS AND STAFF ARE UNPROFESSIONAL AND "GHETTO". I REGRET PULLING MY SON OUT OF NYC SCHOOL. ITS UNFORTUNATE FOR ALL IN WILLINGBORO, BECAUSE THERE ARE VERY LITTLE CHOICES OF SCHOOLS FOR OUR KIDS. THERE ISNT ENOUGH RECREATIONAL FACILITIES FOR THE TEENS, ESPECIALLY THE BOYS. TOO MUCH TIME ON HAND LEADS TO TROUBLE. PLANNING ON MOVING OUT OF WILLINGBORO, POSSIBLY BACK TO NYC.
