Principal leadership is a heartwarming and sincere role and this principal wants to see every student succeed. This principal is in her second year and replaced a principal who lef tthe current principal with a large overhaul to attend. I believe this is the principal who will turn this school around and who will be able to offer hope to these students for a real future.
I found the school to be very disorganized and some of the children to be extremely rude and disrespectful. In addition, the staff was extremely rude to me, in particular the payroll secretary was very unprofessional.
I WENT TO THE SCHOOL, AND SO FAR I LIKE IT, I HOPE BY ME WORKING WITH THE TEACHERS IT WILL IMPROVE
There have been a lot of changes in the school since the new principal came a few years ago. For one thing, I can say thatthe school is clean, and it never was. The principal has an open door policy and whenever necessary the students and the kids can go to her in confidence. I am happyb that the administration actually care about the kids. I read the other reviews and clearly the parent is just venting. I have been in this neighborhood for many years. I have seen the principals come and go. The school has changed for the positive and I think it's a shame that people just sick back and complain and don't join in the effort to make positive change.
this school is very un-organized. There is no control over the students and their behaviors and there is no such thing as tutorial help/academic help.
This is a fairly new school and the first 2 years was ok. I can say it wasn't the worst school. This year a new principal came aboard and the school went from, it has potential to ground zero. My daughter is in 8th grade and since Sept. she has had 3 math teachers and 2 science teachers. No one from the school has notified the parents informing them of any changes and if not for my daughter telling me what's going and me randomly visiting I wouldn't know anything. There hasn't been any notices from school about anything let alone the revolving door of teachers.
