School Reviews

  • Recommended May 01, 2012 - Good academic programs, music and art class choices are excellent. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended April 12, 2009 - My daughter has attended Vine Middle School since the beginning of this year. The teachers are wonderful and I have felt that my daughter was getting a good education. We chose this school because of the programs that were offered and the promise of a constantly improving academic program. There are a lot of children that have a "tough" and defensive demeanor, and my daughter has fortunately been able to avoid them. Now, we are told that due to budget cuts, 3 of my daughter's classes are being cut. The dance program, video production and Beta club will no longer be offered. I was told that the administrators have recommended against encouraging enrollment of children from the Honors Magnet Elementary School as they were "problematic" for the "tough" crowd to tolerate. - Posted by Parent

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.
