  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on April 09, 2009
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • My son has been attending this school for 2 yrs now (3rd and 4th)and can't wait to take him out this summer. He will be transferring to a new school this fall. I feel the teachers aren't engaged to their students and the overall citywide test scores show how poor these teachers perform. This school was my son's zone school so I had no other option enrolling him here. The school has been a failing school for a few yrs. now and no signs of improvement have been seen. If you have an option, pass on this school.
