As a new teacher in the building I had to resign from my position after 5 days in the building. I have observed and broke up fights several times a day. The children are not held accountable for their actions and are not able to control themselves. I was not able to teach the children due to chaos in the classroom. I did have some children who wanted to learn, but were not able to due to the actions of other.
Please be AWARE that this school is unsafe for any child of any age. The amount of fights per week. The bullying in the school, which does not phrase the principal. If your child is bullied, he/she will be tourtched. The are no consequences for them. The kids have the teachers running out the school crying. ITS RIDICULOUS
School has upgraded a lot since last year has new carpet has a great new playground has a wonderful new teachers and a new principal but most of all has small classroom sizes under 20 to help our kids learn
I have read some of the reviews stated here, and it amazes me that we are so quick to blame the teachers and staff for everything! This is a new year, new staff, new testing requirements and etc. So by best we as parents should @ least expect some kind of changes throughout & help with the transition and not degrade our school with such NEGATIVE comments. That being said as a PARENT we also have to do better and stay on top of our children s school work and attitude and make sure they are treating the teachers & their peers with respect and being able to maintain that in the classroom!!! In regards to the new principle I doubt he is just suspending kids for NO GOOD reason! With that being said sometimes someone new has to show Authority and have NO POLICY rules. If your student is miss behaving there has to consequences BUT I do know they have in school suspension so I know there are other options they DO use! Proud NPFA parent of 3rd 6th 7th grader!
