This will be my first and last year working for GBPA. This school has no structure, organization, materials or leadership and it's ran by an unqualified Superintendent. You want to know why your child has a new teacher mid year or why we had four different Principals in 6 months. How about HR Manager being a high school graduate not knowing who to hire and the superintendent education background is only four years of Life Skills instruction. What a joke. Don't be fooled by the website we do not have a S.T.E.M. program teachers don't have paper or working smart boards. Our sports programs are ran in the parking lot, uniforms are tattered and equipment is insufficient. I have seen a lot of great instructors come and go mostly on their own accord. No one wants to work under This leadership of unqualified individuals, turnover will continue occur and the superintendent will continue to hire his unqualified friends. This school needs to be shut down as a dedicated educator I can no longer be a part of this mockery of a school. The under privilege kids we serve deserve so much more. I would advise you not to take part in GBPA on any grade level.
Significant loss of great teachers and staff. Ratings once exemplary on State Exams.How can an exemplary school drop to poor ratings on State Exams? Uniformed board members, Lack of quality staff. Numerous litigation in recent years.High student turnover rate.Unimpressive curriculum,Lack of monitoring of board of directors. Poor participation in meetings. Lack of supervision of superintendent. Intimidating tactics by superintendent has destroyed a once promising school environment.Poor school morale board members have lack of education experience however there is hope.
