We are in 2013 & I believe this school needs to move into the future. The school does not provide all students with technology, music, art ,social studies or science. My child has not received any projects to work on since school has started four months ago. Students receive work mainly in ELA and Math. However, there is a new principal so hopefully this will change in 2014. The behavior of students are okay. However, I see no school-wide behavior system to reward students for good behavior. For example, other schools give stickers and tickets for good behavior. I would not recommend this school right now until they make some instructional changes. Its okay, but no parent wants an okay school for their child. You want a great school that offers lots of subjects with art and music, and after-school programs .
The staff is excellent. Some teachers are horrible to both students and parents. The principal and AP's are great. Always felt they put the children first - however, I am starting to realize it's not the children who come first - it's the State Tests that matter more not to get the lower grade.
I love this school my children have done so well the staff is wonderful and there after school program is great my 8 year old attends the virtul y program and the people who run this program are the best if you are reading these reviews and are thinking of sending your child to 146 it would be the best thing you could do for your child
