Open Quote They should have never combined the schools. Upper school is the absolute worst! My child is terrified while in school and the administration team is ridiculous! I have been apart of Nathaniel Alexander for the last 10 yrs and I will be removing my two children from this place immediately! Close Quote

Open Quote This is supposed to be a magnet school with a focus on STEM learning. The STEM programming is nonexistent. The school leadership is not only uninterested in creating a STEM culture but is not vested in the success of ALL students. The student body is overwhelmingly Black, thus lacking diversity. The coursework is unimaginative and lacks the challenge needed to foster strong academic knowledge and skills for future success. In a world where the federal government mandates that employees are entitled to a 30-minute lunch it is beyond absurd that students are only provided 20-minutes. That is not only unhealthy but grossly unreasonable. The lack of extracurricular activities for middle school students is inexcusable, especially considering that middle school is an essential developmental phase in adolescence. This school does NOT deserve to be called a STEM school or a Magnet school. Mecklenburg County should be utterly ashamed of themselves for promoting it is as such. Close Quote

Open Quote I have two children here and I have been pleased with their education. My 1st grader reads on a 3rd grade level and my 3rd grader reads on a 5th grade level. Their teachers have been wonderful each year and the principal Mrs. Agurs is WONDERFUL!!! 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.
