I think you have to take into account the population that this school is educating. This is a TItle I school so that is already a challenge. But the poverty at this school even in comparison with other Title I schools is staggering. There is a new principal there and new curricula is being implemented this year. In addition they have implemented a school-wide discipline policy that seems to be working much better for these students. Also some of the parents at this school can be as challenging as the students. There are many parents who even provide teachers with disconnected numbers or wrong numbers. Considering all of this I think the school is doing much better than what others are saying. At least give the school a couple years under the new leadership before we judge them so harshly.
