    "Everything about this school is horrible!!!! I have 3 children attending there and I am concerned about their safety and education. My daughter who is only in Kindergarden Is being bullied and the children are so loud she cant even concentrate on her work. She comes home complaining of a headache everyday because the children are so loud. How do they expect these children to learn if they cant even keep them quiet enough to sit there and learn. The hallways are digusting and spell just like urine. The staff are so unprofessional. It took two weeks before my children were even able to start school. I had to put up a fight before they allowed them to enter. BIG MISTAKE!! I should have fought with the Board Of Education to find my children a safer and cleaner school. My two oldest which are only 8 and 9 years old are afraid to go to school because they are being bullied during recess. My son asked 1 of the staff that are supposed to be watching the children for help. Do you really wanna know what she said??? She said " Are you kidding me, as big as you are? Go over there and play!!" Can you believe that??? DO NOTSEND your kid to this school. Im still tryna find a good school.."

    "James Alcorn is not a good learning environment. Most of the students have major behavioral problems that are not addressed. The teachers are constantly redirecting these students while the few students who are capable learning sit and watch . The principal needs more security staff because safety is major issue inside this school. This school has gang fights inside the school everyday."

    "James Alcorn is terrible. The students do whatever they want and there are no consequences."

    "I am extremely disappointed with the quality of leadership at Alcorn. The Principal is not consistant in dealing with her employees or with the discipline of the students. The school does not meet my standards for what I expect a safe and productive atmosphere to look like. I have witnessed the principal repremand her staff in front of parents and students. The severity of the negligance in this Philadelphia public school needs to be recognized and action needs to be taken to solve this dilema. I eagerly want to bring the public's attention to the poor learning atmosphere to which these studnets are being subjected."

    "The princple at Alcorn is not a very good princple. She doesn't treat her staff or students the way they should be treated. The only way she will hear what you have to say is if you really be up in her face. She has no respect for any of her staff or the people who comes to just help out in the school,to make it better for the kids."
