This school is below standard because the teachers can't get along long enough to teach the students. The principal (now former principal) was very rude, played teachers against each other and treated her staff crudely. She also allowed the teachers to be disrespected by the students and did not respond appropriately to many students being written up due to her being friends with the family, being related to the student and her not wanting her school to appear problematic. I am hoping that with new leadership there will be an end to these problems.

My child has been a student here for three years, and I'm not happy at all with school or the administrators. I know this is a title one school, but that does not mean the kids can't excel. It seems like the teachers and administrators do not expect the kids to perform on their grade levels. My daughter is in the 3rd grade and half the kids in her class can't read. I wonder how these kids got to the third grade and can't read. If the kids need extra help the time is now, not when they are in the sixth grade and causing problems for the othe children. These children are our future. Please get them help. If the administrators are not doing their jobs, get new ones. there has to be answers somewhere. Somebody has to be held accountable . Demand parent participation!
