I admit, there's some credit I should give to this school; for one, my student's teacher isn't terrible, another for the school's programs not being total garbage. But this school has very poor funding, a bad curriculum, and not many teachers or staff members are nice. I would not suggest this school if your child wants to learn.
School 16 is a terrific school with an expert and caring staff, and a principal who always places the achievement and needs of its students as her top priority. It is a happy place for a child to learn and grow.
School 16 and Annex are great schools my son has been there since Pre-K and now in 4th and still has 4 more years at 16. They have great teachers, The assistant Principal and Principal are awesome.The School is very clean with great custodians. The PTA is great and growing.
My daughter has attended this school since pre-k. She is now in 3rd grade. The teachers are knowledgeable and personable. This school is now pre-k thru 8th grade. We currently occupy the old Christ The King school on North Broadway. This is the School 16 Annex which has grades pre-k, kindergarten and first grade. The only teachers or staff that have left, left due to retirement. I am very happy with the level of learning and teaching. The PTA is strong and growing. They bring many programs to the school. They need more parents to volunteer. Check out the school 16 pta page on facebook. Anyone is welcome to schedule a tour of the school.
Deeply committed to it's kids with a PTA that is invested in it's well being. Check out the multi cultural events that have taken place over the past two years to see the trajectory that this school is on.They have some of the best teachers that I have come across.
