Open Quote I hate the day my daughter ever enrolled at this racist white supremacist schhol. Childre of all races talk in class, drift off in their thought, and defend themselves against bullies. The only difference is black kids are picked on and given disciplinary infractions while the white kids have no action taken. Some of the teachers and staff do their racist best to break the confidence and spirit of black children. You can complain but you'll just be told they are not racist. I hate the school.

Open Quote This school is the worse school. The teachers, most of them are very rude and they are only there for a paycheck!!!! Ingenuity is the worse thing I have ever heard of. They have 0 text books. I had a parent conference and they told me that my daughter does not have homework normally and that they just have to review what they did that day, Thats BULL!!!! And the no text books is un heard of!!!!! They need to get there stuff together seriously. I will be taking my daughter out! She has always made GREAT grades her whole life till her 6th grade year, She felled. And her math teacher told me months before the school year was over that she was going to make sure that my daughter will fail her class. Thats BULL as well. She dressed like trash, and looked like she has not took a shower in weeks and her hair was a wreck. She Never took the time to do one on one with my child!!!!!! I have heard several complaints and know a ton of parents that pulled there children out of school the first two weeks of school due to teachers not wanting to do what they have to do. To many kids in one class. Teachers yell and are very rude and talk to the children with 0 respect. I am very upset!!!!!!! my daughter needless to say got placed in the 7th grade because i was not about to let her be in 6th grade again!!!! All i have to say is get your acts together!!!!!!! I can't stand your school. And my daughter will be pulled out with in the next three weeks. 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.
