    I have to agree with the other parent the principal at this school Mrs Starks haves no manners what so ever she always wants to fix everything by saying " I'm so sorry" not to mention my sons teacher haven't showed up to work for like 3 weeks already and the class is stuck with a substitute teacher I feel like the kids are falling behind they hardly get any homework . Ever since Ms Monta o left the school all the ceremony's are a total disaster I feel like she was doing a way better job than the principal she had everything under control and I have to say something about the help they have there they really need a dress code because I don't think sagging basketball shorts is appropriate for the kids . We as parents need to do something .... ASAP
