I believe that Imagine Southeast PCS has the potential to be a great school. It needs leadership with strong organization. The children come from diverse urban backgrounds with a host of social challenges. These issues account for the need of a management team that is willing to commit to addressing these challenges and not just concern for performance numbers.

The people that work in this school in very disrespectful they do not listen to the parents and they are very very rude this is why I took my to girls out this school and this was up to close last year and they can't keep employees each year it is new employees

My child has been attending Imagine since pre-k4 nd is now in the 1st grade and my other son is now attending in pre-k3. I LOVE imagine simply because its a challenging school. My 6 year old reads on a 2nd grade level. I also love this school because their all about the kids. They make school not just about learning but also fun with multiple activities they have for the kids. Yes it cost money but all the money goes right back into the school. My kids will be going here until the graduate out or they close the doors (hope not)

My kids are no longer in this school. I have always felt the teachers were good but were being held back by the principal. Its too bad a lot of the old good teachers are gone. The ones that left which isn't many because they brought in new people, are finally getting a chance to do their job. I do believe the school will survive and become a wonderful school if the right people run it proficiently. But my kids will not be returning. They are doing wonderful right where they are. I wish nothing but the best to the school.

Simply put I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!!!!! I have had a kid in the school since its inception. The teachers are PHENOMENAL!!! The staff are great. The principal gets a bad rap! She is stern and has great expectations for our children and their supporting family structures. Some adults finds it insulting to be challenged! If you are doing what your job as a parent, she is not a problem. Besides, we all have our short comings and nobody's perfect, right? Most of the negative reviews are from disgruntle adults who care more about if someone "like" them instead of how much someone values and respect their children. Trust that the prinicpal LOVES the kids she serves! I LOVE this school because my kids were reading by PreK-4 and doing work that my friends' kids weren't doing. The school is warm and inviting and straight up beautiful. I would recommend this school to parents who want their kids to be challenged in a rewarding environment.

I have two kids that have been at Imagine SE PCS for five years. They are both reading and performing well above grade level. My kids have been blessed with great teachers and staff that are committed to giving the kids in Ward 8 the best they have to offer. The prinicpal on these reviews have taken a beating. I disagree with most of what these reviews have said about her. A powerful black woman is always perceived negatively! We need to look at how she treats our kids versus a personal opinion of her! I personally love her committment to my kids and the kids in my community and I, as my childre, look forward to going to ISE daily. Every school has problems, but the problems of ISE are nothing like I've experienced at other schools. The good far outweighs the bad here! I would love to see more parental involvement. Parents seem to forget that they are the best teachers. Involved Parent that loves this School!

My children have been attending since they were 3 back in 2008 when it first opened. This is a very great school with an excellant curriculum. It offers plenty of parent involvement, activities, and extra help if your needs ir. My children are both on advanced levels and are on the high honors!

I highly recommend this school. As a grandparent, my granddaughter has improved quite a bite since attending this school. In the first year she had some behavioral problems that has now been dealth with, thanks to the highly professional staff at this school. She's now in her third year and I have seen tremendous improvement in her handwriting, reading and math. She has excelled.


Posted January 4, 2011

The principal is the most unprofessional and by far the worse principal I have ever encountered!!! I was not thrilled with her first year there and the second year was a huge mistake. For starters, the children are very disruptive, the teachers were very young and inexperienced, gossipy and would tend to focus on each other rather than the children. I decided to give it another chance after talking to the principal a few times about my gripes with my child's education and the manner in which the classroom was run. The second year was worse! The class that my child was placed in was the largest Kindergarten class, the children placed in that class were students from the previous year had behavioral problems, disrespectful and worse of all one of the students had a very obvious learning disability and should have not been placed in a main stream class. If you can believe it the aftercare was WORSE and run by the principal's son.

I am so not satisfied with the professional and quality of service that my daughter and I receive from imagine southeast. This is the second and last year that my daughter will be attending. The leadership is not rooted and grounded in quality but only pays attention the numbers and not the childrens education. I am currently seeking a new school with a better environment for more quality education and experience for my daughter. Before registration please review organization, observe the environment and curriculum and watch the efforts on the children before sending your child to this school.

This is my son's second year at this school. I am some what pleased, my son is in PreK-4, and he is above grade level. There are a few areas that I think need improvement. He will not be returning for 2010-2011 school year. He will be attending another Founation School.

About the tests


The DC school classification system includes multiple measures to evaluate performance and student growth. The possible classifications, from highest to lowest, are Reward, Rising, Developing, Focus and Priority. These measures include the DC CAS, annual growth, graduation rates, attendance rates and participation rates. Under the system, required under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), each school is given a School Index Score based on the performance of its students. Schools receive different levels of support, resources, flexibility and monitoring based on their classification.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

This school is a low-performing (Tier 3) school, according to the DC Public Charter School Board, the organization that regulates DC charter schools. Schools that are persistently or significantly low performing (Tier 3) could have their charters revoked, resulting in closure. If a school has been identified as low performing by a local authority and that designation could result in school closure, the school receives a "Below average" GreatSchools Rating.

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
