Terrible Shut It Down It’s Terrible The Kids Are Barely Learning
parent
The worst school I’ve come across in my whole life the teachers do not have the best interest of the kids in mind I’ve been to this school several times for everything other then my child’s academics and success

In all honesty, if you have a child that is bright, articulate, well behaved and willing to learn. FIGHT WITH ALL YOU HAVE TO KEEP THEM OUT OF THIS SCHOOL. There is a severe lack of discipline and supervision and this school just seems to be an unorganized mess. It is unfair for parents who work hard to teach their kids the right way to be forced to subject them to this type of environment. Also it is sad to say but their is little to no parent involvement leaving the teachers pretty much helpless in the situation. I just moved to this area from another state and I could not believe what I was seeing. If this is our future then I am extremely saddened and afraid.

One thing that I am sure of is that there needs to be some changes. The teaching staff is great but I'm pretty sure there is a resource issue. While newer schools are going up all over Elizabeth, this is one that has been left behind. The building needs and overhaul as well as disciplinary rules. You will not feel safe as you send your children off into this abyss. You just hope that they come home in one piece.
