BEST SCHOOL EVER. I left this school in 4th grade to attend a middle school that starts in 5th grade. i totally regret not graduating from that school. i loved all my years at 159 EXCEPT for kindergarten. that was the worst year of my entire school year. i used to get abused by a teacher named Ms.******(i wont say her name) she used to literally push me around and accuse me of things i did not do puposely. once she threw me into a chair. i told my mom but she did not believe me. if i knew about suing i would have sued her right away. PARENTS DONT WORRY KNOW for she is no longer in that school. this is a great school and you should let your child attend it

I am a former parenjt of this school and find the teachers especially of the lower grades are very direspectful towards the students.I also had issues and nothing was ever done to resolve the problems .I find when you deal with children in impoverished communities some of the teachers treat these students improper based on socioeconomic factors .
This school is an excellent school. I give this school five stars as a rating. I know that kids in the class are focus. If i ask what they were learning about today they can explain it to the last detail.
As the kids move up a grade their learning disabilities seem to drop. The teachers speak in a very inappropriate manner to the children. I brought this to the staffs attention and nothing was ever done. In the winter the children have to stand outside in the cold unsupervised until school begins if they miss breakfast. Unfortunately it's the best of the horrible schools in the neighborhood.
