Open Quote No wonder the teacher hit the news for calling children the N word at this school. First, academics in this district and school is at the bottom.of the barrel. Teachers are no longer teaching a student when they push for Achieve 3000 to be the instructional source for language arts or I ready which replaces math. The gifted academy here is a joke in itself. It's created to separate the good disciplined and higher achieving students feom.the bad ones. But that still doesn't give students the quality of academics. Teachers calling students retarded in this "gifted" academy says enough. What a child needs is an academic environment where they can thrive at their next level and this is not the place. If your child leave here to high school, they will not be prepared for the already mediocre education this district provides let alone having the academic level to keep up in high school, thus,.if college, definitely not prepared for high school. Students fall so far behind the learning levels that their adult life will suffer. Find a better solution to middle school, this is not it. Close Quote

Open Quote If you have a child with special needs, save the enrollment. This is day camp at its best but one of the worst environments that you can put your child in. Staff is so far behind in the learning curve of what children with special needs need to progress that the child is the only one being impacted negatively. Suspecting a staff member to put their hands on a student is unacceptable at any cost but to force that teacher to retire instead of holding accountable is just one reason to tag this school as awful and deplorable. Save your child's valuable time and go elsewhere. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
