This is an awful school. My child was injured in the school and the child who injured him was not even reprimanded and it turned out it is because the principal was sleeping with the boys married father. This was not the first time this has happened, she is known to sleep with the male fathers even the married ones.

Due to the extreme lack of parental involvement, teachers/faculty pretty much perform in the manner they decide. As a result, potential parental involvement is neither encouraged nor wanted. Once it is understood that you will be active in your child's academic career, an outward display of concern is shown for the child by the faculty. The rampant 'children should be seen, not heard' mentality at CS undermines the school's accredited status. Finally, the few and far between teachers attempting to make a difference, are dismantled by the unorthodox leadership style of Ms. Tedder, school principle.

Future Teachers should do your homework and request interviews with a first year teacher and a seasoned teacher that is not supervised.Observe around the building before you accept a position. This school has many challenges for anyone not familiar with inner city youth-issues and attitudes. Kids are great, but many kids are in heartbreaking situations, and you must really want to be up for a challenge in a school system that is full of challenges--organizationally with deadlines and short notice turn around expectations, heavy student testing and great pressure to have successful students, many who are getting little, if any, support from home. On the positive side, a school-wide discipline plan is set to launch for next year. If it does go into effect, it should be quite helpful in encouraging kids to self-monitor and give them rewards for doing what they should be doing!
