    I'm the proud parent of an extremely intelligent 7th Grader that also attended Attucks in the 6th Grade. The principal allows my son to spread his academic wings and take classes that are well above his grade level; and quite successfully I might add. He is currently taking 9th Grade Honors Eng Alg II Chem as well as Geom on-line. He is preparing to take Pre-Cal this summer and for 8th Grade he is slated to take AP Eng AP Cal Physics and World History. Attucks is the best keep secret in all of Indianapolis!!!!

    My son just completed his first year at Crispus Attucks as an 8th grader. I was very nervous about sending him to such a large school but to date I have been very impressed. Mr. Faulkens and his staff run that school well. My children have been to private schools and charter schools. I can honestly say that my son is receiving a quality education. I am honored for my children to attend there.

    I think that Attucks just needs to add more. I mean the teachers are great and I'm already way ahead in my education as a freshman because I go there. But I think they need to add more classes because they just have the basics and that's not good enough if people expect Attucks to become a top high school.
