    I am trying to persuade my daughter to relocate with me to Charlotte along with my granddaugher who is in middle school. But I was so disappointed in this particular school which is near the area where I had looked at houses for possible purchase. But this school has such a LOW Great Schools rating. Worse however are the numerous spelling and other grammatical errors that appear in these posts about the school. As a suggestion this school should immediately double down in every academic subject; students should not even be graduated from this school if they cannot spell correctly have a decent vocabulary or write coherently. Showing concern for each student is also caring whether that student learns enough to compete with students coming from other schools. Passing a student who has not met even the minimum requirements is not helpful to anyone not even the teacher. I am sorry for having to say these things.

    My child attends this school. I think the school can really do something positive with this money to help with the students education.

    Im not a parent.. I was a student at MLK.. And I love that school everybody is ver welcoming and people are real with you there AlGEBRA teachers are the best you can ever have. They have a very clean school it would be a great school school if it was in a better neighboorhood. The school does not have Cliques so that is good I was freinds basically with every body.
