    OR Pope was the first school I ever taught at...and therefore it will always hold a very special spot in my heart. I loved the other teachers I worked with and the students I taught. In response to a few of the parents' comments there happens to be MANY obstacles that bombard teachers on a daily basis which prevents some excellent educators from their instruction. It is sad; however the teachers teacher assistants and administrators that are there ABSOLUTELY love the students their job and the school. Tearing the school down WON'T solve a thing except place at-risk students in a larger school (which could be in an even worse setting) with teachers that don't relate or appreciate our special students. The grass is only greener where you water it. What Pope needs is more support from Central Office the community and parent's. If we all work together we can reach EXCELLENCE!

    This is not a school of choice. The surroundings are filled with abandoned houses and loafers who walk the steets daily. Teachers do not concern themselves with the quality of the students education yet they make excuses why they can't teach. Most children in this school are disadvantage and have low moral and ethics. Most of their parents do not teach their kids moral values or respect for themselves or other students. I really HATE that my child is in this school district and wish they would shut the school down!!

    A great school with a great principal and staff but needs a new face lift. It also needs more extracurricular activities and more money to hire more teachers and assistants to help improve the schools quality of academic programs.
