Open Quote This school is the worst I've seen. From the demographics to the test scores to communication with the parents, it's an embarrassment to the entire city. Whatever they did or whoever was in charge from 2009-2010 was the only chance this school had for success. Since then, it's painfully obvious it's riddled with failure. And because of this, 2 out of my 3 children have been held back a year. Their mother and I are separated, not legally and not divorced. Simply two different households. I receive ZERO communication unless I push for it. I receive NO report cards, courtesy calls or emails regarding absences and poor grades/behavior and have basically been denied all of my rights as a father with 100 percent custody of my kids. I don't even get emails or copies of their grades. The campus portal is crap and is never updated in a timely manner. I have NEVER been informed of parent/teacher conferences or issues with my children and when I ask where their report cards are or any important notifications for the parents, I get told every time that they SEND THE PAPERS HOME WITH THE KIDS!!! Even in the 1980s the schools were smart enough to mail them to ensure they got to the parents. I get treated like a second-rate citizen any time I go in there asking for information (I have to go in person due to them refusing to give out information over the phone which I completely understand) and they contact my ex-wife's BOYFRIEND of 2 years before me on ANYTHING! I'm a decorated combat veteran, soon to be a college graduate and a productive member of society. I've been awarded TWICE by Mr. Oscar Goodman for service to this community and I push my children to succeed. Their mother is the opposite, yet she gets all the respect and communication and I get NOTHING. It's pathetic and just plain wrong. I would not only NOT recommend this school to ANY parent, but I would recommend the school district TERMINATE the employment of most of the faculty and start over. It's the only chance they have for success. The numbers don't lie. This school cares very little for the success of it's students. It's an embarrassment. 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.
