1 review for Martin Luther King Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 01, 2007
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • As a parent of a third year continuing/ current student unfortunately i am very displeased with the education that is supposedly being received by my child. My perception of this school is that the children of king Elementary are no more than bodies in chairs. They Are only receiving the bare minimum education possible. Not to mention the fact that the classes are packed 20-1 students to teacher. The fact of the matter is that there's no genuine care for your child's higher learning. The administrations department is concerned more with the absence of a student then he/she that is falling behind. So what that say's to me is that the money received for present students is oddviously more important than the building of the community. So the actions named above has forced me to seek propper education for my enrolled child / those that where soon to follow.

    Ps... Sorry for the bad report but. It is what it is.
