Develops honesty: Neutral

Students are segregated by whether or not they are zoned for this school. Given the socioeconomic factors, not to mention race, no...If everyone isn't given the same chances at the same brass ring, no - we're teaching nothing. It's more like a social experiment from 1964.

I, too, transferred my child here to go to Hume-Fogg. Quite frankly, these kids are better behaved and the teachers are more interested in the kids instead of their iPhones. They need a band program, though. I mean...they have one BUT it's brand new and it's choking out due to a severe lack of parental concern or involvement. Yes...PARENTS...YOU have to contribute, too. Fortunately, most of the kids who went in this year (from our neck of the woods) had already had several years of amazing music instruction and they do have the ability to participate in outside music related organizations. The others seem to be there to get out of class. The director is wonderful - love her - just wish she'd stop trying to be friends with the kids and make these kids live up to their potential. The one big issue I have with this school is the segregation. Sort kids by abilities - not magnet and neighborhood kids. It's not 1964. If people are scared of a little brown rubbing off, then don't go there. Kids are kids. They ALL deserve an education.

Everyone that works to make this school better, thank you. The rest of these disinterested parents that see this as nothing more than a tolerable nuisance to get to Hume-Fogg, you and your kids are missing out by not being involved.

My daughter is actually learning this year. AND her position is being listened to and even if not agreed with, it's respected.

Yes. These teachers take no nonsense from these kids and know them by name. They are fairly open and giving with the free hugs, too. That's pretty awesome.

Develops empathy: Agree

They try to. In the interests of being PC, they have to remind the magnet kids that the neighborhood kids are often homeless, only get their meals at school, etc... but it's not to teach empathy. It's more like, "don't flaunt that you have everything you need because someone will be upset by it."

We put our child so she could go to Hume-Fogg . The principal is disorganized, doesn't respond or communicate with parents. The parents are frustrated and upset with the u professionalism. Teacher are abusive to the students and it's been going on for years. We took our kids our and there were 7 more parents pulling there kids that month with the same excuse. This is a horrible school.

I personally attended John Early my 5th-7th grade year. I loved it ! The teachers were wonderful and they kept the students highly engaged in academics, sports and out of school activities. I was a member of the Volleyball team, cheerleading team and the Forensics team. I highly recommend parents to enroll their children into this awesome school!
