I've had lots of problems with the teachers. they say that my osn does not turn in classwork. He is an AIG student. Went from principles list to Ds. I can't get any answers from the teachers. They don't even send progress reports home when they are due.
This school need a new pricipal very soon or it's going to get a lot worst. This principal does not take any of his time to speak to parents unless it is someone he knows or he thinks is somebody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This school made significant progress and was headed down the right track under the leadership of William Wright Jr. the former principal. I don't know why he left but since then the school has gone down hill! The children are out of control and the teachers are leaving in big numbers!
My daughter was there for almost all of her 5th grade year. She was an 'A' student and never had discipline issues. However because of discipline issues that were never resolved we took her out and placed her in a private school. Teachers are very young and they come and go.
This school at first started out as a really good school. The office personel has changed so many times in the last few years that the schools students are now suffering. This school has become a very big disapointment not only to my family but many others as well. There is now a big mess keeping good teachers in this school. High turnover etc. Students are not respected here much anymore. Teachers demand their respect however! We have an alarming amount of school suspensions and ISS. Alot for petty things that could be dealt with in a better manner to keep kids in school. Music program has declined Band program is awesome. Students are placed according to how smart they are in their classrooms. Putting all the smart ones in class together per grade. Disadvantage to the others! Sports program is fine except for 'CHEERLEADING!' They are only picked if they are AG/straightA'S OR WHO PARENTS ARE!
