I can say I am a proud mother and mss 226 is proud of what the done each year for the kids thank to al the assistant principal lunch room staff gym teachers safety guard, teachers parent coordinator, counselor guidance I love the way all of you work with the kid .
Judy, that's how every public school is. If you fail a state test, you have to go to summer school to re-take it. But yes, I do think it wasn't fair to tell her last minute. But, I hate this school! The kids think their gangster when in reality if you send a few 137 kids there, they go dead silent.
I am very upset at the way things are handled in this school. My daughter is in 8th grade and was left last minute to be told that she's not graduating because she didn't pass her state math exam. Less than a week before graduation! This is unfair and unprofessional of the principal and teachers of this school. Kids shouldn't be held back from graduation based on their test scores. They should be based on how they've been performing in class all year. If they pass their classes they should be able to graduate. I am mortified and disgusted of the situation.
What I heard about this school is that you don't give the children their report cards and their diplomas at graduation this year, and they have to do a test to get their diplomas. I am a parent of an eighth grader at this school, and never have I heard about this. I think this is madness.
