  • Not the best school. Actually, the worst in Portsmouth. The classes are full of misbeahved children. Be prepared for your child to spend most of their day listening to the teacher keeping the class in line, while not learning much at all. Your child might come home with a new knowledge of foul language on any given day. Perhaps even being attacked and jumped by several other kids. This school is comprised of the lowest socioeconomic area in Portsmouth- these kids would all be better off if they were rezoned into schools that would allow more oppertunity via diversity/ funding/smaller classes. If you care about your child and happen to be zoned for this school, rethink your options. The teachers here would not even send their own child to this school.
