withheld: My child and others did not have math books to start the year. When I complained it made the principal mad enough to scold me for going over her head to get one. When my child got a book the covers and some pages were missing, the book also was held together by holes drilled through the pages and string wound in them to hold the remaining pages from falling out. When I contacted the superintendent's office he was not in but one of the persons in charge there had no idea that there was even a problem with children not having books, so they would be able to address it. I also know that my child is not the only one who was given a book only after complaining and was given one that was falling apart. Fact is that it all falls to the principal running the school, getting paid to prevent this. And when it was brought up she was in no way apologetic, just complained due to going over her head to get the one that was falling apart. Thank God she will no longer be at the school next year.
Brenda: I was skeptical about my daughter attending this school. I had only heard negative comments. But, I asked myself, it's the only 7th grade school in the area, how can the attendees be troublemakers every year? What I have learned is the children who were disciplinary problems in elementary school, will continue to be problems. Principal Seals is an awesome person during a phenomenal job. She lets the teachers and a parent handle their issues and intervenes only when she has too. Ms. Jessie, the school counselor, is what a counselor should be, unbiased, compassionate, fair, and decisive. If a parent has an issue, she should be their first contact. As for the teachers and some of the support staff, I think some have taken on the "whatever" attitude of some of the 7th graders. Very few teachers attend school events, such as the girls & boys basketball games. Some of the teachers don’t appear to put in an extra effort to help students achievement beyond what is expected. Mrs. Seals and Mrs. Jessie are great at what they do, but they can’t do it by themselves. The Assist. Principal needs to step up too. They all could learn to smile more. The school itself is old and dirty. I think there may be more than one housekeeping person, but the only one I ever see is the man. But, it’s unacceptable to think he can keep that building immaculate by himself; with one person it’s going to get as clean as it going to get.
