School Reviews

The Only good thing about Rhodes is the NJROTC program . The rest of the teachers don't care
- Posted by Parent, 06/20/14
I am a parent and I attended Cleve. public schools my whole life, I think this school is terrible, the principal, needs to be replaced!! and the disciplinary action needs an overhaul, I am appalled by the number of students who failed 9th grade, that is a failure of the school. Teachers kick kids out of class for misbehaving and disrupting the class, then they just do what ever they want, or the principal brings them back and yells at the teacher in front of the students!!! Tell me that is not creating a bigger problem. Why not punish the kids for misbehaving, and make them accountable for their actions, if there are no consequences, why SHOULD they care?
