The inner city school had a bad reputation, and at one time was considered among the most violent in the country. However, a very dedicated, perservering staff has turned this school around. There has been far less violence along with an increasing amount of academic success.

This school is horrible for any student and if by chance your child is one with special needs forget it! I am appealing to the district and school board for help with staff behavior toward students which is inappropriate to say the least.

My son attends Charlotte. I am trying my best to get him out of there. I am trying to get him into Edison Tech for the computer program. Charlotte staff and teachers try. but, the students are out of control. they need stricter discipline and need to be held accountable. My son cannot learn because the kids are so unruly. It is horrible. Sent your kids to school without walls or Edison. very nice schools

This is not a good school. It should be. It was. It needs firm community action from the senior citizens home to the local restaurants to the Catholic schools to Kodak. The urban and suburban citizens of Rochester need to take responsibility for the community. The parents need to take responsibility for their children. This is Rochester. The city makes the county. It is not the other way around. This is a good community. It's okay to like the city. It's okay to live in the city.

I am actually a student teacher at Charlotte High School in eighth and ninth grade social studies classes. I have been at East High School, Fairport High School, and Cicero-North Syracuse was my own high school. I have been in the most suburban, and most urban schools in New York. True, the school is dirty, loud, and the students are a bit unruly. The kids are good kids though!!! They have issues, they are loud, they are kids, and yes, at times, they are disrespectful, but they have good hearts. The teachers try so hard, the administrators try even harder. We do need more parental inclusion into the student's lives, and the school would probably be a much better place... Please keep an open mind about the school, they are a great bunch of teachers and students. We all just need to work together to get it under control.

I think that Charlotte High school is a great school. My three children attend Charlotte and have had a great high school experience. For the people who complain about the students behavior I believe that it is the parents responsibility to teach their children manners and respect.If their is a lack of these things at home then there will be a lack at school. Stop blaming everyone else and acknowledge your responsibility as a parent! If you don't want to take the time and teach your children right and wrong then stop having kids! Thank you

Outside of normal peer pressure my children s opportunities (grades 7&8) are limitless contingent on the funding or the lack there of provided by the state. The Principal and the Teachers are great here and really care for the futures of Our Children! Through the years Charlotte has been treated as an outcast school, a school of last resorts, but in spite of this the faculty here still has hope that through their efforts that even the least of these kids will have the opportunity to become productive members of our society. Although what makes this so challenging is the lack of parent involvement or even parent caring, parents are the Genesis of our social fabric and should be held ACCOUNTABLE as such. Until this happens our teachers will continue to fight an uphill battle.

At the beginning of the school year, the past school sent 'The School of Choice' booklet for us to choose the school for him, he wanted to attend Charlotte Middle School, for the Computors that it had, but after he got his first day in there, he had Spanish, as one of his classes, and they didn't have that in the booklet for this school, or he wouldn't have choosen't that school. Since he has been there he is failling Spanish,and his Spanish Teacher said that he wouldn't pass to the next grade until he PASSED this class. So if you want your child to attend this school make sure that he/she wants Spanish to pass to the next grade. Thank you.
