    "Sad how the school is being run. Grades, student behavior, and overall academic standard needs serious attention."

    "Even though most consider U-city a bad school I don't. I think it really depends on what program your child is in. My daughter is in Sem and she loves it and thrives there I have met everyone of her teachers and they are all fighting for change. the fault doesn't just lie in the teachers it lies in the students too if they are not willing to learn or show up to school there is nothing a teacher can. I also believe the new principal isn't helping the situation. for those who remember the previous principal can tell the difference. I've heard of the chaos, seen it and my daughter lives it but when you step into sem its a different world than the chaotic downstairs"

    "I am a school district employee and a very concerned parent. The environment of the school is appalling. I believe this school is getting worse due to the ineffectiveness of large amount of teachers using their teaching techniques, lack of some staff members inexperience of dealing with problem situation, and no support programs to help students academically. It is very sad that the school district does not have empathy to make the right changes for our children. Test scores indicate that the system is failing the students. If you visit the school, you will walk into chaos. The principal has no repoire with parents or students. He acts really snooty. Please help our kids!"

    "I have to admit, that this school was headed in the right direction a few years ago. But ever since they lost there old principal. this school has not been he same. The kids are NOT learning what they should. Dont get me wromg, they have LOTS of great teachers, that are doing their best to make sure the kids reach their educational goals. But the ladership coming from from above the teachers, really need a lot of help. The Philadelphia School District itself, needs a lot of help."
