School Reviews

  • Recommended April 18, 2011 - It may score well on CSAP, thereby creating a good school report card, but overall we were disappointed by the level of apathy of teachers and administration. Our child felt UNSAFE in school. She was bullied. Teachers were unsupportive, quite clearly demonstrating to us during parent/teacher conferences that they're SUBJECT matter was most important--not children. A unfortunate circumstance to be in. Watch out for: 1. BULLYING--seems to be rampant but well-hidden. 2. SRO officers who question your child without another adult in the room...and without talking with you first. Isn't that a violation of Civil Rights? 3. APATHY!!! Even when withdrawing our child from the school, no one figured to ask WHY...beyond, please fill out this here form. If you have a choice, as you do in Colorado, maybe choose another venue--even if it means having to drive your child a little out of the way for another school. At any rate, bus fees per child next year are $150. - Posted by Parent
