Quality starts with the Principal and filters down to the teachers, then down to the ancillary staff and finally the students. It's a real blessing to find a school like this. They care for the whole child. I worry about what happens after Wadsworth. Where can we go where you have trust of a good education and a place that truly cares for (particularly) a child of color? I am sure that white kids would receive the same love as my child with open arms . It's just refreshing that a child of color will be judged by the content of character that might be missing somewhere else. I would welcome this school expanding grades because of the excellence in the fiber of the school, that appears missing in so many other schools. Go Panthers!!!

While students are enjoying time off this summer, school district officials across the country are grappling with the issues associated with Common Core Standards, as well as plenty of opposition from parents and teachers.
As more schools return to in-person learning, teachers and parents find themselves dealing with the trauma and stress created by the pandemic.
After more than a year of remote learning, schools are finally returning to in-person instruction but how has the pandemic changed the face of public education and what will it look like moving forward?
