I was yelled at by principal Allen because I wanted to know why my kids teacher said she was done with her in the front of the class he said my daughter should lie then argued with me instead of having a professional meeting
i Used to Go Here A Long time ago i miss my favorite teachers lol It Used to be good but i think it probably got worse due to all the gang members living around the communities but who can determine how life goes only thing teachers are capable of is what they can handle something in there range but Mrs White,Ms Roberson, Mrs Mitchell, Ms Brown, Ms Carlisle, Ms Johnson i think they did a good teaching me when i was there but the school overall like teachers other then them i remember one teacher used to be funny in class saying stuff like "Simple Shannon" i forgot if he was talking to a student but it was funny in the Pre-K area I Remember Mr Allen From way back before South 17th He used to be a principal at George Washington carver when people used to try and jump me Compare South 17th to George Washington G.W is worse be lucky if your kid doesn't get bullied before the 3rd grade over there i used to live across the street from the school had to run cause i didn't know how to fight everyday at lunch time but i do see why the rating of the school is 2 out of 10 but look where its at you cant expect it to be some princeton in the ghetto you get what you get the way jersey is
The one bad experience I have is that my daughter study in this school. Teachers who had not been bad, except the last one is I'm not convinced, but that school personnel should work on a farm and not a school. They are rude, security smoke in the school gate and next to the children, talk with attitude to children and not to mention the vice principal who is always screaming and looking owed and not paid . Where will be the principal ... sorry for the mothers who continue to have their children there ... Thank God it's the last year of my daughter's school in that school
