School Reviews

2   5/1/2007
There is some achievement with certain athletic, art, and music programs. But, this school is mismanaged by a tyrannical principal. Students, staff, and parents are in fear of her selective targeting. Dropout, transfer, and GED rates are high for those able to get away. There also appears to be a problem retaining quality assistant principals and staff.Parents asking for help with their child are held in disdain and not aided. There seems to be disparity in rules which has led to resentment among the students and teachers.The school and students have tremendous potential, but unless addressed by the Board of Ed and Superintendent, this school will continue to spiral downward. So far, they are denial.
