    "I absolutely love working at Dr. Charles Drew. I have been there for several years and it is an absolute joy. The children at Drew are at the center of everything. Some of the children come from dismal backgrounds, but the school creates magic for them on daily basis. The school is very in tune to the cultural needs of the students and we make no apology in serving the needs of the students. Equity is at the center of everything done at Dr. Drew!!!"

    "It is a challenging and unpleasant workplace. Most students had home issues; calling social services was common. One on campus social worker could not support all the students in need. The unenclosed classrooms created constant chaos; disruptive hallway conflicts, classroom noises, and thrown objects over the walls were constant. A security guard assisted with extreme student behaviors. Teachers were expected to have students remain seated and quiet at all times, whereas good teaching encourages student talk and allows for student movement. Students had to walk on the right side of a line drawn down the hallway with hands behind their backs in total silence. At lunch, students were not allowed to talk or they were removed from the lunchroom. I felt that we were either preparing students for the military or prison. I am dedicated to working at low-income schools, but could only survive teaching here for one year. Half the teaching staff left when I did; there was simply not enough support considering the challenges and the philosophical differences were too great. I felt that I could not stay given the circumstances nor could I change the way things were, so I had to leave."

    "I have been tutoring at Charles Drew Preparatory for the past 5 years, and watched this school continue to grow and work hard at improving it's programs. The teachers, Ms. Scott and Ms. Rice-Mitchell keep the kids in line with an iron hand in a velvet glove. Sure, it's difficult to watch over the large number of children, but they do it well, and you can tell that they know and care about their students."

    "All four of my children have gone to this school; I have one remaining and I can say the teachers and principal are awesome. I know the scores could have been better last year but we as parents need to do our job as well. We cannot just rely soley on the teachers. We need to do our part when our children come home, we need to support them and make sure our children are doing their homework. We need to be in communication with their teacher and be open to any constructive criticism this will only help our children achieve academic sucess! We all need to work together as one unit and if we all wll do this our children will soar...this will be a win win situation!! ** Mrs. Dahnken is the greatest teacher. I speak about her highly and I am glad that my last child is being taught by her. Mrs. Rice Mitchell is a good leader and takes her job seriously..this is the reason my child continues to go here. Keep up the great work!! Lets bring those test scores up and show the teachers and principal WE WILL DO OUR PART!!"
