As students absorb inauguration, mood mostly gloomy at one Philly school

1101 W. Montgomery Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19122

    As students absorb inauguration, mood mostly gloomy at one Phila. school
    As a new president was inaugurated in Washington, the mood was mostly gloomy inside Constitution High School in Center City. By and large, students signaled the same message to history teacher Carl Ackerman: They did not relish the pageantry and symbolism of President Trump's formal ascension to power.

  • Math Civics And Sciences Cs reviewed

    My daughter has been going to this school since 1st grade against many other parents I personally know advising against it. The academic curriculum is set up so that no child fails, the testing scores for this school is below average and the teaching staff and administration changes every year. My biggest fear is once I am able to get my child enrolled in another school, she wont be able to keep up. She like many other students have never received a grade lower than an "A", and while my child is intelligent, what I see and constantly work with her on outside of school, is a student who struggles with major subjects such as math, reading and language arts. Yet her "A" grades say otherwise. A staff member who graduated from this very school cared enough to share their story with me and also advised if I had any hope for success for my child, to remove her. They stated after graduating and going on to college, they struggled severely because of what and how they were taught at MCSCS. My regrets for once again not listening is now my struggle in finding my child another school to attend as several learning years have been wasted. As a parent , I will continue to work with her in preparation for what's next and continue to pray on getting her enrolled in another school.
