School Reviews

Disappointed in they do not deliver on the stated mission they profess to. Not all kids are treated equal. The highest preforming kids are very highly regarded and they find ways of eliminating those they do not preform to their sought after test scores... In the 5 years we were there, I saw several kids that did poorly and were targeted as they only have to pass 80% of the students (as per an educator employed there.) Any school will do well when the children are prepped for the meap tests which they spend weeks doing. The saddest part is that the kids that are "problems" and get kicked out of public schools are ending up there. Most have an IEP and it ties the hands of the Admin. to effectively deal with them. Would have been better if I did not have inside info to the goings on there and see what I saw.
