This school has a ways to go... The office staff is very disorganized and does not follow its own discipline procedures (in the handbook). The discipline is horrible...mostly because the students aren't adequately screened and they get lots of kids who have been "kicked out" of multiple other schools. They have some bright students but they have an overwhelming number of "low performing" students who lower the standard and make the curriculum "less than challenging" for the smarter kids. The school does a good job of hosting speakers and events geared towards "black pride" but falls short on making sure that all students can pass State Testing. Instead they say the tests are "racially biased" and dismiss the results. Until this school gets a handle on the discipline issues hires some para-professionals to help the classroom teachers in ALL grades and makes the curriculum more rigorous the students here will NOT be prepared to go to high school let alone any college/university!
