I really liked Pershing when my child began. It started out strong in 6th grade. By 7th grade, the school’s population increased beyond its capacity. It happened again in 8th. By 8th grade, the kids were feeling the impact of an over crowded school. There are just way too many kids who attend. I did hear that teachers were overwhelmed with poor student behavior as well. We heard this from the principal formally in a meeting, and from the students as well because their teachers told them all the time. They have a notable fine arts program but some of those classes were overcrowded, too. Creative writing had 40 students in one class that wasn’t designed to hold that many kids in a classroom. The teacher was frustrated because there was no way to create a space for that many kids to write in a quiet environment. My child left creative writing even though they loved it before that year of an overcrowded class.
This school has little accountability for its teachers. They are allowed to make up their curriculum as they go along with no clear scope and sequence to help your child follow. Only 2 of our child's 8 classes have books or any kind of organized material. Teacher's do not have to send home graded work so there is no way to support your child academically or even have a tutor help. They do not show up for scheduled meetings, do not have to respond to any communication and the bullying is completely out of control. It is a complete free for all and every aspect of it is disorganized like there is no leadership in tact whatsoever. Everything the Principal announces to parents is rarely followed by the teacher's. They seem to have no sense that they need to follow what he says. We continue to stay totally shocked that a school can expect students to learn without textbooks or any curriculum online. Stay away from this place if you want your children to learn and be in a nurturing environment.
Worst school ever I've gotten stopped twice by police in this area trying to take my daughter to school and pick her up. The bus system is inadequate. Too many school zones and the buses do not retract their stop signs after kids unload the bus. I'm tired of getting stopped because of the color of my vehicle. My daughter is not happy here either she gets treated unfairly. She used to love school now she hates going. I don't recommend Pershing. My daughter is a 504 student and I have to remind teachers of her disability. I don't reccommend this school.
They do not do anything about bullying. They do not do anything to the children who are being disruptive. They just pacify the parents.
