Open Quote Safety is great. Most teachers are open and friendly. Principal and assistant principal need to be more tolerant to views that are different than theirs. One teacher should know that she can not go to teach with her pants falling down like a teenager (bad example for children). Extra curricular activities are acceptable. Bad sides: the academic curriculum is too light and childish. Lessons are not challenging at all. Lots of times, homeworks are assigned, while teachers did not really explore the subject. Too much play. The school needs to be serious. The school seems to prepare the kids to fail socially and academically. a) Socially: because staff urges children's to call them by their first names, whereas in the real world, one has to refer to your superior by "Mr." or "Ms". 2) Academically: the school is anti textbook, anti testing. In the real world, one has to use textbooks and be tested for almost everything.
The teaching of science is a disaster. This subject is being taught by teachers not versed in this subject. They only teach what ever aspect of science that they feel comfortable in, while they ignore the curriculum to be taught.

Moreover, the English instructors teach no grammar (maybe they do not grammar themselves). Geography is completely ignored. Social studies are not taught properly, not even American history.

The state has not yet closed this school for failure because the parents are excellent. They assign extra work to their children to cover the school's weaknesses. Most parents are educated working class who can't afford to pay private institutions but want the best for their children. Hence, they have placed their kids at Ella Baker to avoid the zone schools' violence (because Ella Baker is very safe). However, these brave parents have to endure the school inefficiency...some of them have cried as they became aware of staff's incompetence. Therefore, Ella baker's ranking with 4 stars do not reflect the school academic standing. It is a testimony of poor but educated parents' efforts to enhance their kids' education. Close Quote

Open Quote The Ella Baker School is damaging children for life. They are creating underachievers. No text books, No quizes, No studying outside of school necessary, projects only done in school they say its so they no its the childs work. This is a complete farce. A parent would look an essay or report over and tell the child what they need to expand on what they should do better or just straight out do this mess over its unacceptable. Oh but not at this school parents never see these reports you find out about it at parent teacher conference. Then when you see it your horrified and ask why did you accept this? The child should have done more research or there are words spelled incorrectly. Ugly just ugly. 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.
