Wonderful Parent Teacher Liason (Ms. Stephanie Kelly) and Counselor (Ms. Beverly Green). Kids are well behaved.


Posted March 25, 2005

I like the atmosphere of this school. I was very shocked, however, by the school's report card. I compared it to the northside school district's report card & this school's passing rate is almost half of the passing scores for northside. ? Am I the only one seriously concerned with this... will I have to supplement my child's education with summer tutoring at a northside facility? I can deal with a slightly lower score because that might indicate that a few children aren't wanting to apply themselves. But little over half passing makes me question the teachers ability to teach effectively. I pay such high property taxes for these results?
