If this is the only optional school you can get your child to attend it's okay. Be prepared for the neighborhood. The students are learning well at this community's rate. Most children here don't know their first and last name. Most teachers here to pay off student loans by teaching here for a few years. Sadly the children are suffering twice as much here. Most families are low educated and in poverty. The children are getting robbed of a decent education at home and at school. This school is always placed on lock down ( Due to shootings and gang violence in the area). The principal will not call and notify the parents you will find out on fox 13 news at 5:00 PM after work. Teach your children at home as much as possible because he/she will not gain knowledge here.
My son has attended this school for 2 years and has excelled like never before. Great teaching staff and Principal. They genuinely care about your child and want them to do well. They keep you posted on any new updates and continuously try and push and motivate the kids. Great, great school! Go Ms. Shipp!
