  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on April 07, 2010
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I have set all of my children to this school. My son who is in high school now began there in 1996. I attended Blackham. I have seen a downward spiral in this once state of the art school. The teachers, not all but some have absolutely no control of the children. Every year there is a new elementary principal. The parents for the most part do not speak english. They are rude and exhibit a overwhelming sense of entitlement from the system. The school over the years has become delapidated. Sinks are broken, lockers are broken, children are disrespectful. They have behavorial issues and do not belong in classrooms with the children who want to learn.
