I was a student there last year and I feel that the school is very good. The taechers take time out with students and parents were involved. I graduated as the valdictorian and I think the teachers for helping me to go above and beyond. The school is not bad it just needs the right students and someone who can take control.
I went to this school many years ago as a child, excellent teachers, wonderful staff, caring parents and children who wanted to learn. Over the years this school has become horrible. The teachers, the staff, the parents and the students themselves just dont care. This school needs more educated teachers, more academic programs for the children to learn, a new principal, new staff, and the parents need to do a better job in educating their children at home. This would be a great neighborhood school for children to attend, but until someone steps up and take control of this horrible situation, I guess things will continue to get worse.
I think if more parents would take more time in helping thier children and teachers, the school would be a much better school. A lot of parents leave everything up to the teachers, and when their child do not pass a test or fail in general, the parent wants to know why. Yes, you do have teachers that need not to teach, but you have to do some teaching at home and also teach the child to respect the teacher and their classmates so that they can learn what they need to. The school is not a bad school, its just the parents need to do some teaching also!
Children very wild, but a few teachers who actually can keep children in control enough to teach them. Staff lazy and kids rough around the edges. My daughter hates it.
