    "Well first at all, my soon it's at LACS since 2009 first with Ms. Caldas next with Ms. Torres. Now with Ms. Karpman. He's already an independent reader and we love the school. Yes, parents involvement its below 0% but if the parents don't support their kids school and education our school will not survive. Then wake up parents. We (parents) have to be the anchor in our kids lives, educators are not parents, they do their job sharing their knowledge we our kids. Please get involve, don't ever think roles models begin at school, "role models begin at home" don't blame the school because they don't do miracles, educators trying to build future professionals, but without parents involvement its impossible."

    "Facts are facts. One of the lowest testing schools in the state. Decreasing enrollment year by year. The charter renewal in 2008 was for over 300 students, the current enrollment is far less than that. I agree that uniforms are pushed on the students as a priority, and many times students have been yelled at by the CEO for being "out of compliance". I've seen strict dress policies before, but the demeaning manor is insane. Speaking of, the claim to the CEO's fame is the smart boards in every class. Technology does not necessarily equal performance. Perhaps instilling a sense of morale in both the staff and the students would be a better choice. Maybe your good teachers would want to stay. Also, you are correct in that another emphasis is on testing. This is because the school is failing, as per the NJDOE website. It is up for a renewal next year, and combined with all the other issues, they would certainly be under the gun for increasing scores. They are at risk of having their charter not renewed, or even revoked. Of course they would pull out all the stops. The building is hot, dirty and dark... not a very good educational environment."

    "This school has all potential to be one of the best schools in the Jersey City area, but due to the lack of structure and parental involvement it will remain a less than average school. As a parent of a child that attended last school year I feel that the only thing emphasized was the appearance of the students and the NJ Ask test there is so much more to an education besides either of the two in which I rank uniforms to be the absolute last in a school where older children can be heard screaming profanities in the halls at any given moment. We will absolutely not be returning back."
