i have my kid there since K and I have noticed a huge change in the last 4 years in this school, i think this school should have more ranking.....students,teachers and the whole administration have been working so hard.

The school isn't the best place but it isn't the worst either. My child is learning at a slow rate but he is still keeping his grades up

I have/had 2 children in this school. The first one I yanked out and sent him to a different school, and I'm planning on doing the same with my 2nd child. They hold report cards (homework on report card day also) hostage - forcing the parent to attend the PT conference (possibly taking time off work) or get so frustrated the parent has to involve the principal to obtain the report card weeks later. Also the children receive a 0 grade if the parents aren't able to show up. The school will also call over every single thing (including contacting CPS over minor incidences). Many parents have complained about this issue. There really doesn't seem to be much organization as well. Every other school in Newark has homework and other access online. Hawkins forces the parents to come into the school (at the schools convenience). Very frustrating.
