    CLOSE Growing up, Fisk University President Kevin Rome wanted to be what he saw on television - a lawyer or a judge. "But I didn't really realize what a lawyer did," Rome said. Rome grew up in Columbus, Georgia in a single parent family. He was the first in his family to attend college.

  • Head Middle Mathematics / Science Magnet reviewed by a parent

    This is an amazing school that offers challenging courses, diversity, and opportunity to all. We would strongly recommend this school to anyone. I think the combination of online grades (which you can check as often as you like), progress reports every two weeks, and the ability to re-take or redo assignments and quizzes gives every kid a shot at self-improvement. It's really just up to the students and the parents to show the motivation to get things done. If you take those opportunities, you'll do fine even if you start the school in a different place. This is why magnet schools exist: to challenge kids. These are aspirational schools and not for everyone. If you and your child are willing to put in the effort to do some extra work and become the best you can be, this school can offer it. Advanced math and ELA in 6th grade, great extracurriculars, and teachers who care about a diverse set of students are what make this school awesome. Teachers can't do all the heavy lifting on their own. It's a joint effort between them and the student with encouragement and a little extra love and help from parents. But to those willing to put in the work, Head offers a wonderful educational opportunity. We'll miss Head next year and hope that MLK is as challenging and awesome as Head has been.

    We had high hopes for this school. Entered in fifth grade. Unfortunately, some of the teachers are downright cruel. The school counsellor is unsupportive. The principal is responsive, but the senior teachers have the upper hand.

    Definite disgrace to the image of a good school. Incompetent leadership. Surprised that most of the staff in place at a "magnet school". No follow up or follow thru with admin. If zoned for this school, please look at other options if available.
