The school lunch is trash because they are not cook right if my mom is at the school she is a good cook.
Brookland is a good school but when I''m older I won''t let my kids go to Brookland because of all of the fights that happen and bullying and etc.
Great school, Inclusive kids can be cruel but its good
There is something wrong at the school and I do plan to take it up at the school board. The adults in the school want to teach kids about bullying but they are the ones that are the big bullies. They deliberately give out false information do not do their jobs and harass people that are not doing anything to them. If I could move my kids out of the school I would. If you don't have to have your kid it's in the school don't it is the worst schools that I've seen

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. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
