Open Quote The worst school I've ever encountered!!! I've never seen anything like this in my life. The teachers do not care about the students and them getting an education. Every time I asked my son's teacher(s) how he was doing progress wise, I got, "Oh He's doing very well. Then when Progress Reports came around the grades were extremely low w/no communication whatsoever from his teachers on what had happened with his grades. It was not just my son either. One teacher clearly stated that all the students were failing. If all the students are failing, then it's the teachers who are responsible for creating another lesson plan that's workable for our children.

The students had control of the hallways w/a lot of profanity and the exiting of classrooms at their own will while teachers continued their so called teaching. There was a lot of Bullying and Robberies right in the hallways. The Principal stayed hidden all the time. I have to say, I only saw her two or three times the whole school year. I'll never forget that experience.

The band was the best part. The Band Director truly had heart and much concern for his band students, which he constantly received a lot of opposition from the higher ups. That's too bad! I truly hope the teachers & Principal start to care again! Close Quote

Open Quote The worst school ever! The best part was The Band and at least the Band Director cared for his students.

There was a lot of Bullying and Robberies in the Hallways and the Gym. How can a child learn in those conditions?

The Principal and Teachers had no care whatsoever about the students and them actually learning. The principal was only seen by myself 2 or 3 times during that school year, which was sad! The teachers were constantly in a bad mood, like they were unhappy. This in turn was felt by our children. Because the teachers did not care, the students did not either, which led to the students taking control of the hallways/gym. Where was Mr. Clark when we needed him???

I hope they truly wake up and perform the job they are paid to do. I'm really tired of the Parents being blamed for our child's failure. As soon as my son started school, all that was taught flew out the window. I've come to realize, this is a concentrated effort on our children for the outcome, 'Failure'!

*Home Schooling is definitely more productive and more reliable. How can you teach a child if you do not care about them, if you do not feel anything deep down in your soul for the young????? ****Wake Up Teachers**** 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.
