I recently visited this school. They have painted and cleaned. It looks like people care. The office staff was so nice. The principal and assistant principal are brand new and I can see there will be a positive change at the campus.
This school is terrible the teachers speak to the children as if they were adults there are no consequences for the children who hit and bully. I will not be sending my child back to this school. Its a dirty school, they never serve whats o the lunch menu and always have a movie on during lunch time. The staff are rude and not welcoming at all! My sons prek teacher was amazing as for al the other teachers they were rude always yelling at the children.
Most of the time, the majority of the office staff will not look at you or acknowledge your presence as a parent. However, the principal and Vice Principal are very nice and seem genuinely concerned with the well being of the children. The coach is rude and constantly looks angry. While there are 'No Bullying' signs everywhere, there is no real enforcement of the policy. Kids that bully are sent to the office and then returned to class. There is no accountability for their actions for them or the parents. There is a heavy influence on teaching the kids about black history and the importance of black historical role models, but nothing on other culture's role models or histories. The teachers seem overwhelmed with kids that have behavioral issues. They have a hard time teaching and maintaining any kind of order. While we, as a family, have met some very nice and encouraging teachers and, of course, the principal and vice principal- we are giving up. After 2 years we are going to try a different school.
It feels like the children are inmates in jail. The children do not appear to be treated appropriately. Adults in the school speak to the children as if they were adults. There appears to be little tolerance for childhoood. The cafeteria atmosphere is unacceptable. The children are verbally mistreated and often threatened with "the corner". The kids are not encouraged to talk and normal childhood interation appears to be shunned. I have witnessed the children being told to shut their mouths. It does not appear to be a school where education is the priority.
