The school renovations look beautiful! There are teachers there who genuinely care for your child and their education and go the extra mile for your kids. As of the now the teachers are currently taking extra time out of their summers to work with DOE specialists on learning new teaching techniques. The receptionists are very friendly too.

I just started as the 4th grade math/science teacher. I will say the students are a handful and there are no major materials in my classroom. But I can look past that. I am there for the kids. I am thankful I have finally achieved my dream of becoming a 4th grade teacher. I will pour my heart into these kids and use my own money to make my classroom my own. I LOVE IT THERE!

This is a ridiculous excuse for a school. It is a dangerous place where education takes a backseat to drugs and violence. There are no resources for the students to learn.
