The students at the school, feel like they run the school. They do not care about their education. You can count on one hand the parents that are involved and when a parent is concerned, they do no know how to handle it. The atmosphere is not one that is condusive to learning. It's easy for kids to get caught up in the "do nothing" vibe of the school. AIG programs are good, those teachers care, but what about the other students?
When people find out that my children go to this school, they usually make some comment about the school being rough and rowdy. I would like to let everyone know that this school is great. Parents are welcomed on a regular basis. Teachers are highly trained and seem to genuinely care for the students. The building is large and well-equipped, and every classroom has the latest technology including Activboards, computers, sound systems, etc. Security cameras in the halls and a full time nurse make me feel that my children are safe here.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
