School Reviews

  • Recommended April 04, 2007 - This school is good up to 4th grade, they have excellent kindergarden, but Middle School lets me down. The students who need help don't get it, on absent days they are left getting their homework from another student, instead of from the teachers. I mean come on! How reliable is that? My child had an issue with a computer during class when another student reached over and closed the program that he/she was supposed to be working on, he/she had her hand up during the ENTIRE HOUR and the teacher never made it to them. Also, if your kid gets bullied, here is NOT the place to send them. They seem to not care and say "what are we supposed to do about it?" - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended April 04, 2007 - I am a student here, I am forgetful sometimes but I really try. I do not get much help from the teachers, I feel that they all hate me. When I ask them a question, they tell me to ask someone else. My dad says that they should answer my questions because they get paid to. This school doesn't have any sports at the school, I would like to play soccer, or basketball or something, but they have nothing until you get into Middle School. - Posted by Student/Alumni

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets.

Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
Teachers in 19 States Allowed to Physically Punish Students
As of 2014, nineteen states still allow corporal punishment – spanking and paddling the most common choices – in their public schools. However, some argue that not only are these punishments physically harmful, they also are disproportionately administered to students of color. As a result, House democrats have taken up the issue in a new bill that would ban all forms of corporal punishment nationwide.
