    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.

    This school fails academically safety wise and socially. Teachers are made to "teach to the state tests" which leaves little time for teaching the basics. Unless you are capable of teaching your own children at home on top of what they get at school your children will fall greatly behind. Anti-bullying laws are ignored so each time your student attends class they will be hit by other students. There is no discipline for the children causing the problems. A blind eye is turned to these incidents. It's just a matter of time before you have a "Columbine" situation at this school. The students run the school. These children are set up to fail. If you value your children's safety and academic training.......find another school district or homeschool your children....
