Open Quote I once was a student here, and i found this school AMAZING. Even though i'm not in this school anymore, I still appreciate the teachers giving me the education I have today because i'm in all AP classes. I also am very grateful of how supportive they can be when you just feel like no one cares anymore. Thanks M.L.K. Staff love Ya'll. <3 Close Quote

Open Quote I have found this school year 2010-2011 to be the most fruitful for both of my children 1st and 2nd grade. I complement the teachers and their motivation that they give to my children to read and turn in their homework each Friday with their little incentives they give them. It's a team effort and I am very pleased with my children's motivation and school performance this year. Also the concept of having 2 teachers in one classroom, I believe does make a great difference. My second grade son almost made it to the G.A.T.E program and that's speaks tons of the material and the teaching that goes on in the classroom.
I know for a fact that kids will do anything but homework if we let them do so...It's our responsibility us parents to make sure they sit down for those 15-20 min to read and to do homework EVERY DAY; let's not blame our teachers for our faults!
Good luck MLK staff, pls keep encouraging the kids to succeed. Close Quote

Open Quote This school has poor teachings, and is very ghetto, I hate my child has to go to this school. Some of the teachers here have no idea how to teach!! Just because you are a teacher doesn't always mean you can teach. My child scores are low and they have no idea how to help her. 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.
