  • School Principal fails to have open communication with parents. If a parent brings a concern to her attention she will do everything to disregard the concern. Has poor relations with children. Fails to remove poor teachers, and fails to acknowledge those instructors who go the extra mile. Very few extra curricular programs. School only has sports programs. Have sent my children to charter school instead and they have done great.

  • School administraton fails to listen to parents and students concerns. Ms. Montgomery is extremely hard to locate and never at the school as required. When brnging up a concern to the administration of the school expect that no action will be taken on your concerns. Montgomery is good at placing blame on others rather than investigating the misconduct on the part of the instructors. If you attempt to go to the District Administration they do not fare any better. They will promise follow up and return phone calls but fail to follow through. There is no Parent Teacher Association in the district and parents have been shown to have little value in the administrations eyes.
