Posted May 22, 2009

Terrible leadership starting with the principal. She does not address the troubled kids and the discipline that is out of control at that school. Teachers spend more time dealing with bad kids and irresponsible parents than good kids
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 5, 2006

Friendly staff, but the school is in dire need of improving academically and weak administratively. Test scores are allegedly fictional. Would I send my kids there? No!
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted April 22, 2004

The climate at Amelia Earhart Learning Center is not conducive to student growth and maturity parrying all hope for academic achievment. Upon visting I was flabbergasted and left nonplussed by the pervasive harsh tone used to address the students. The school desperately needs change.
