They emphasize and promote intensive teaching with competent teachers who promote a culture of learning and development mostly due to the compensation the school receives when the students perform on state tests.. This a positive in every way where all the students and the school benefits...If they didn't have an incentive, this school would perform at average or below standards due to the the area which is economicly disadvantaged and where English is a second language for many if not he majority...I applaud the state for setting the school up this way...it is a win win for all of its students regardless of their background....
I do not care for this school at all, the atmosphere is less than desirable! My child just started their less than one semester ago, and not only has he not progressed, he has regressed. He started out pronunciating his words correctly, but after the first few weeks began to use slang type pronunciating. The teachers are less than proffessional, when I drop my child off in the morning, the teachers are arrining as well, and ALOT of them are dressed like they are going to a trashy night club instead of a classroom. With skin tight skirts, blouses, and the tallest high heels you have ever seen. This school also caters to the hispanic community, and the ciriculum is WAY below standards.From the moment you walk through the door, you get a vibe of ghetto and unproffessionalism, and when the employes open their mouth and speak to you, it is confirmed. So, if you want your children to be sucessful and productive, I would look elsewhere for their educational needs!!
This school has turned around 350 degrees with the implementation of Magnet. Ecology activities are unique in the entire school district. My son is now using lego tools to carry out their ideas, knowledge of Roboltics and Engineering. If you are interested in having a bilingual child, try the dual immersion program because my son can to speak with Hispanics and Americans. I encourage parents to be lured by learning, and not by social relations (which depends on you). Most are middle class families and low, but also have parents from the best companies on the island, who have chosen that school to educate their children. But if you like entertainment, you have to know my son has a busy schedule of fun activities that are not just for school but for the island community at times. Successful events thanks to us the parents who appreciate the effort being made by the school and seeing the change. Today you must to know LA Morgan has a new face!
This school was not a good school I, as a former student,went there and made all A's because of the lack of money and funds to support the teachers efforts and provide them with materials to teach on the correct grade level standards.
