School Reviews

  • 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

The Parents’ Guide to Common Core
The Common Core State Standards were developed as a means to prepare K-12 students for success in college or the workforce upon graduation from high school.

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
