    The school teachers are not teaching the students well because of the other students are talking and treating the teacher bad. The Principal is trying to help the students to do better in school by taking on the the intercom. The students don't even listen to it.

    Sojourner Truth school is a well all around school that has all the academic and uniques ability to adapt and connect students in its community. The students and teachers work together as one each day to ensure that the set a high approve goal to achieve their academic excellence. The principal is also a strond and sophistacated educator that cares for the saftey and acts for all the students and teachers.

    I think that the students are very ill-mannered and lack of principal leadership is a substancial issue. I really dislike this school. It's not a good choice for your child.

    Sojourner Truth Middle School is a well disciplined school for various reasons...one we have a strict principal. Two we have the best students and teachers. And finally ninety percent of the students listen and the other nine percent just like to be difficult and uncivilized. They all know how to do the work that's given but they want to be lazy and not do the work instead they roam the hallways and deprive others of their education.

    Sojourner Truth lacks behavior for students and students are very rowdy
