  • Recommended June 22, 2015 - I have worked there now for 15 years at this School and yes the schools had some problems in the past but with new leadership the school is starting to turn itself around it made AYP a few years back and has shown high growth in the past year. The students know what is expected of them an School and yes the schools had some problems in the past but with new leadership the school is starting to turn itself around it made AYP a few years back and has shown high growth in the past year. - Posted by Teacher
  • Recommended March 15, 2010 - Severe disciplinary problems, poor leadership, and apathetic parents. Not a safe school for teachers and students who truly want to learn. Students are constantly fighting in classrooms, vandalizing school property, and threatening teachers. I should know because I was a former teacher at that school and have personally witnessed the horrors of what I described earlier. Also did not receive the kind of support that I need from the principal and parents. It was a mess when I left that school, and from what I have heard recently from former colleagues, the issues that have been plaguing that school have become worse. I do not have children of my own, but if I did I would not enroll them at that school. My advice to parents and future teachers is to avoid that school like the plague, or be very sorry. - Posted by Teacher
