The Principal Mr. Waters at this school is a weak leader. He has talked down to me as a parent and asks like he owns the school. Just because we live in a low income area it does not make us less intelligent. It's hard each school year having newer teachers coming in, it would be nice to have my kids be able to experience the same teachers when they get to that grade. Why can't they retain good teachers especially in the upper grades. Maybe Mr. Waters talks down to them too and has pushed them away with his lack of leadership skills. I would advise you to take a closer look to some charter schools that are around this area like I did. I found one that has really nice teachers that plan on staying, my kids are learning just the same or probably more, and treat parents with respect.
Today was my 1st graders first day of school here, and she just loved it. She came home very happy and excited to go back tomorrow.
This is a continuation of my previous review I checked one star because you cannot submit a review without a star rating and I already gave the school a three star rating... I liked the extra curricular activities offered band starts in fourth grade here however, the band director is not great with communication, when I asked about purchasing colored instruments vs traditional I had to contact other high schools because it took him two weeks after school started to answer me after several phone call attempts, emails, and written notes, and I needed to order the instruments so they could have them in time of school. They also have basketball for 5th and 6th graders, which was awesome to watch my student play, when she got the chance. My main reason for not returning was because of uniforms.
My three kids attended this school for 2012-2013 school year. The presentation is nice since they have a new campus but one of the office staff is very rude I found myself up at the principal's office the first day of school reporting the incident. I wound up reporting that faculty member three times that year. I only interacted with the assistant principal and he was outstanding he should have become the head principal instead of bring someone else in. I absolutely hate it is a public uniform school. Whoever said uniforms save parents money were delusional. Because for parents with multiple children they have to furnish (in my case 6 wardrobes because I have three children which makes two wardrobes each, street and uniforms) Kids do not wear uniforms on weekends or breaks and then they get very little use out of their street clothes because they grow through out the year. I will say they handled discipline by the guidelines they set forth which made for consistency. The teachers, my fourth grader and kindergartner had were great. However my fifth grader's teacher was very unorganized as well as my student so between the two of them they were always looking for assignments.
