    "I am a former student from this school, and this is one of the few places I call home. The teachers work hard in order to help their students achieve their goals. They're more than just teachers, some students consider them friends even family! It's a small school and everyone is welcoming towards each other. The student population is very diverse; I've met some of the coolest people here. Yes, once in a while there are a couple fights; however, it's mostly the middle school population, and those situations get resolve very quickly. Whether a student decided to pursue a higher education or not, every student is required to apply to colleges and scholarships during their senior year. I graduated this school in 2014. Now, I'm at a university pursuing a major in engineering. I had an absolutely amazing experience at this school. Nevertheless, everyone's experience may not be the same, so please don't judge a book by it's cover. Like any regular school there are students who are not serious about their education, but there are remarkable students who strive to succeed. It's still developing, but this school is going to exceed expectations in the future! #PantherForLife #JKGoBuffs!"

    "More than anything mlk more than just being a school and community its a family because we all stay together and help eachother out im not just talking about the students im also talking about the teachers. There are teachers that more than just being a teacher to us turn into friends, we go to them for advice and they are always there. This school is different but unique sure its not the best because it has its ups and downs like any other school but its not bad and the students are not horrible like all of you guys claim. You should judge a school or generalize that mlk is bad and horrible because of a few student also because you can never judge a book by its cover when you don't know how things really are. Keep it to yourself, because everyones quick to point out a few of the bad things but never take the time to point out all of the good ones this school, students and teachers have to offer! #studentclassof2015"

    "Reading all these negative reviews about MY school are just so unfair, i say this because a lot of those "descriptions" fit only a short amount of students in my school, everyone else is awesome! If you guys got the chance to be at my school for just one day, you'd see how much students appreciate their teachers, and how much we all love each other. This is the only school i'm not scared to get bullied in, I have friends who go to a suburban High school, and guess what? They hate it because there is so much bullying going on in there. MLK has changed my life, if you ask me, BEST SCHOOL EVER!!!!!!!! *This is from someone who ACTUALLY knows the school enoug"

    "The problem with most these reviews if they are very one sided. I have been going to this school since 6th grade and turning into a senior next year. I have been her for 5-6 years. There is a large rotation in teachers due to the districts RIBing system. This has been the most helpful school I know. Friends of mine go to other schools and refer to their struggles regularly. I will not be the first student here to say that MLK is a second home to me. I can't think of any actual controversy between the students. We have always worked to together and always will. The staff this year do nothing BUT care for us. I am infuriated that some of you people are so ignorant about the situation. I understand some of the reviews are from former teachers or students, but they never gave this school a chance. They were most likely forced here against their will and had A bad experience. Nothing in this world is peachy and I would suggest some of you do your OWN research about our community before taking advise from a review website. That includes my reply as well. Don't trust me if you don't want, but as a veteran of this facility, I can guarantee you that this school is THE BEST in DPS."

    "The biggest issue with this school is that there is little or no adult control over the kids - the kids rule the school and they take full advantage of it. Kids coming to school drunk and high and selling drugs. One student begged me to take her out of class because no one was listening to the teacher, kids were messing around and talking out of turn and one kid was rolling on the floor doing whatever he wanted and the teacher couldn't get him to stop. Kids wandering the halls evading adults, leaving school grounds for hours at a time, and kids being locked out of classrooms regardless of the reason for being late. Punishment rather than Positive Behavior incentives and supports are employed, and it does not work. Adults in the school do not enforce their own rules and then wonder why kids don't behave or learn in the classroom. I briefly worked at this school and live in the community, and I would not recommend this school to any families. I think it needs to close and be reopened by a charter school system that works."
