    This school isn't bad the kids are bad. When I went I was a goo student with a talent drawing. The teachers encouraged me to improve on my talents and I will go far. I'm now a portrait artist at the age 15 thanks to the teaching and encouragement don't blame this school for anything. Teach your kids not to be fools in school if they want to be fools stay at home with you people. Be a PARENT.

    This school is terrible. This is my sons first year (he is in 2nd grade) at this school and it is horrible. There is no discipline on the part of the teachers and the students. The kids run wild literally. The teachers are always hanging out in the office when they are supposed to be teaching or monitoring the students. The teachers are always calling out and they have no substitutes. I took my son to school one day for breakfast and the kids were standing outside the cafeteria door banging on the door and there was no one there to let them in. they only get 15 minutes to eat so someone should be there on time. Parents have to work just like the teachers do so we can't always be there to assist.

    I like the teachers and the only thing they need is more parents around to help.

    I think this school is a horrible. The students are not held accountable for the dress code. They are allowed to cured run the halls without a conseqence. They are not treated with respect with maybe way they are acting out. Some of the teachers dont care whether or not the students succeed.My child started their an A student and excited to go to school everyday. This school has robbed my child of her eagernest to learn and follow positive behaviors. There are no incentives for the students who are willing to do the right thing. Teachers do not respect the parents nor the students and have a 'I dont care attitude. The example starts from the top.It is disheartning that this school rates a 2 however I would not be surprised if it was a 0! We need (the adults-parents teachers administration) to get it to gather. for the sake of

    This school is by far the worst My daughter attended the school a few years ago . The staff members do not want to take accounability for any issues.that arise . My daughter was labeled at this school however she is now an A student at her current school.

    This schoo is TERRIBLE. I have been consistantly dissatisfied. I would not recomment this school to another parent.d and this is the WORST! You have to want to teacher because you want to make a difference... not a dollar!

    My daughters attended this school for three years. The teachers are good and some are excellent. Resources are very limited and parent involvement is low. But the teachers make the best out of what the parents and state and city government contribute which is close to nothing.

    My grandchild have enrolled in your school because her Mom live near your school. She is coming in from LeithWalk Elem. I was looking in your Parent Review section and I was very disapointed that there are no comments in this section.
