Pat Ham while the teachers have good intentions the bullying is out of control. If you're black you are free to treat people any way you like on the bus in the school on the playground. The management (Principal transportation superintendent) will pay lip service to just to get you to drop the issue saying they will fix it but nothing ever gets resolved however if your child sticks up for themselves and pushes back your child will be punished. If you're moving to the area pick Eau Claire Niles Buchanan Berrien Springs Watervliet Coloma anywhere but Benton Harbor will be better for your children and your peace of mind than Dowagiac.

My daughter attends school at Pat Ham. She gets individualized attention whether she knows the material or she is struggling. Everyone knows her by name and really cares about her. I can volunteer any time.
The principal is understanding and helpful. The secretary is ALWAYS friendly. Most of the teachers are nice. My kids have loved all their teachers! They are all quick to acknowledge and address my concerns especially if I feel my child needs extra help with a subject. They truly practice what they preach - NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND!!!
This is a great school. Great leadership strong teachers.
I think that this is a great school. Both of my kids have learned so much. The teachers they have had have been very helpful to me when I need it.
