Those of you writing bad reviews concerning the state of the academics at this school please remember that you and your child are given the same opportunity to learn in this school as anywhere else. Opportunity is realized through accountability, and without accountability, your student could be at the most elite school in the USA and still (and most likely will) be a failure. Teachers at this school, as well as almost any other school, react favorably to a student taking accountability for themselves and working hard. Being a graduate of this school who has since moved on to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Business School, and who now owns my own business, I can assure you that this school is offering your student the foundation they need to succeed, but the student and the parents need to take accountability for their own performance. If parents continue to blame the school for their children's poor performance, then they are contributing to the lack of accountability that will surely be evidenced by the grammar that they, and their parents use to criticize the school in later years due to their own lack of accountability.

The only thing this school district is good for is academics which I agree need some work cause as a former student myself, this school district is not at all what it used to be. The worst things about this school district, the staff regarding the superintendent, a few principals, vps, and other staff need to get it together or get out. They simply can not do their jobs correctly, mainly the middle school. I have seen teachers and vp's as well as the principals lie to parents regarding their children just to suspend a child for minor things which I have had the experience myself. They also target certain children, and fail to protect children's safety. There have been children who have been bullied, assaulted physically with serious injuries, and a sexual assault in the high school during school hours. Having these officers in the schools is a waste of time as far as I am concerned. Also, they need to do something about the busing issues with the seating, which still continues, I had to deal with that as a student myself with Burlington Township back in 86,87,88, etc. The only thing they did improve was putting cameras on the buses... But overall the school from a rate of 1 to ten gets a 4.

The academics in my point of view still need some work to be done. Music and art it overall good but they need more sports. Kids should be more involve in social thing. This is school needs to move up a lil more so its a great schoo.
