Open Quote My daughter is enrolled to start first grade here. I had reservations about the school, despite the awards they have won. I have heard things from teachers that it isn't really that great of a school and really just average. Well I accepted the seat for my child and attended open house today.

I was very upset to find that a student from my child's previous school that has bad behavior and actually punched my child was in her new classroom. I went to speak to the principal, Kamela Washington, regarding this and she stated they won't move my child into a different classroom because the classes are all full. I know this isn't true because another parent from my daughter private kindergarten told us that hadn't registered until the day of the open house and didn't know which teachers their twins were getting for 1st grade since you don't receive an assigned teacher until your child is registered. So there were still open seats in other classrooms when I asked several weeks ago and again at open house.

The principal said I could ask my child's teacher to put the kids at the different tables in the classroom. Yea, that will really help. What kind of school offers to do nothing when a child has been physically assaulted by anther student and doesn't want to be in the same classroom?!?

This is not some great "magnet school" just another crappy and corrupt CCSD school.

Jo Mackey also reserves seats for every student from my daughter's private kindergarten even though the magnet program is supposed to be on a lottery system. Close Quote

Open Quote I have received numerous notes and flyers sent home with spelling mistakes. I have received notices with incorrect dates for teacher in-service. In addition, if you are pro-Obama, this is this school for you. This is an academy of democratic and progressive politics. If the school we are zoned for had a traditional school year like Jo Mackey, and not 12-month, I would have pulled my child out of school mid-year and sent him to a public school. There is no way I will let him attend 2 years in a row. 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.
