Several unqualified teachers i.e. uncertified, Librarians, CDL bus drivers, children of staff members, family -nepotism, nurses serving as teachers and lunch help, teachers placed in wrong assignment for their certificate, teachers doing double and triple duty. Staff is overworked - driven like slaves in an unsympathetic teaching environment. I hope they can get it together. 12 teachers quit or left, 5 in one class. Some have not been replaced ergo the double and triple duty plus tutor for free and work overtime and do afterschool and in-school DT. Monitoring of unidentified children drains some teachers in the primary grades so much its impossible to teach. I know two incidents where te students hit or assaulted the teacher on purpose but never even got suspended. Most teachers won't tell you the truth about the school. I pray they try to do better with children starting today.

This is school is ok, they give alot of projects for K grade, which the kids can't even read or write yet so the parents end up doing the project , so if you are a two income family and you don't really have time to do alot of projects and homework with your child, stay away from this school. I really which they would just teach my child how to read and write and add instead of all of this homework he/she bring home every night. My children came from a different school district that didn't believe in alot of homework and my son learned way more and they are the top district in Cincinnati, Ohio. I think PCLC needs to rethink so things.

This school is not what the commercial advertised on the radio. They have large classes and tutoring classes are large also not the one-on-one or small session. My son is supposed to be getting IEP, I feel that he is not getting all that the school said and most of the children are out of control. We are good parents who are involved in our son's education but not getting good reviews with this school. We do not care for this school anymore.

I have had my kids in his school for two years now and it has been nothing but problems. My son is in the first grade and I have had to go to the school on many different occasions. He was once playing with his tie and the teacher took it and threw it away, second he was talking in line and she got upset and threw a crayon at him. I had a meeting with the principle, superintendent and teacher and in that meeting she admitted her wrongs and that was it. Would you really want your child in this school??? My kids come home with 9-12 pages of homework a day the teachers bullies on the kids. My 4th grade child is behind on her reading level.

PCLA IS ONE OF THE GREASTEST SCHOOLS AROUND. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE ACADEMIC PART AS WELL AS THE STAFF INTERACTING WITH THE CHILDREN. MY SON AS ADHD AND I CAN SAY THE STAFF WORKS WITH HIM VERY WELL TO MAKE SURE HE IS ON TRACT. MS. WILSON IS DEFINENTLY BRINGING THE MOM ATTITUDE TO THE SCHOOL AND I LOVE IT. I FEEL WHEN MY SON IS THERE HE WILL BE DIRECTED IN RIGHT PATH. ANY OTHER SCHOOL I WOULD BE PICKING HIM UP EVERY DAY BUT NOT PHOENIX. kEEP UP THE GREAT WORK I APPRECIATE YOUR STRIDE TO MAKING THESE CHILDREN BETTER :)

I cannot believe the negative things I am reading here. All of my children have gone to this school since it opened and I am amazed and elated at the growth and individualized attention my children have all received. They have all become better thinkers, and humans because of this school and all of the wonderful educators in it. This school encourages and teaches parents and students alike.

The teachers act like they have no training. They haveno control over their classrooms. The children are out of control.

Over all I think this school is great. My daughter has made lots of friends and she is learning at a very fast paste. I sometimes worry about her riding the bus by herself but so far I have seen no problems. Only time will tell how well this school really is when she gets out on her own to take on the world and I understand that I have a big role to play in that area also. But the memories that she develops with this school will last a long time.

The Phoenix is a community school based on H.O.T.S (higher order thinking skills). In our school we have the most dedicated to teaching staff; this includes teachers and Instructional assistants in the area. We students at The Phoenix know that we are not only being taught to meet the standards based on the state tests, but in preparation for the next grade. You can never learn too much in one grade and that is why our wonderful teachers never stop teaching. Even after we have taken the state tests we are pushed even harder to make sure that we are well prepared for our following grade. There is a policy at The Phoenix that the students shouldn't stop asking their teachers questions about a subject until they fully understand it. We are reminded every morning that through courage, hard work, and persistence, that we will achieve our every goal! P.C.L.C

The PCLC is indeed 'That Good School'. The entire staff is dedicated to the success of all the students. The discipline is fair and individualized. This is a great school in which the children are loved and encouraged.

PCLC is on the cutting edge of education for the new millenium. The curriculum and focus on learning is exemplary and the dedication to achievement is unequalled in the southern Ohio area.
