My child has been going to Booker Arts Magnet for 5 years. Even though most of his teachers have been great, there is a real problem with bullying at this school. Not only are students bullied by other students, but they are bullied by cafeteria aides and playground aides as well. There are a few ...  Read more

Booker is a fantastic school. Every teacher cares about every child. The academics are the focus and the arts add richness to the students' learning and lives.

We are now on our second child and 7th year at Booker. Out of those years we only had one poor teacher, as to be expected at any school. I love that my kids are learning to play instruments at such a young age and also learning to speak in public. My 7th grader still emails his fourth grade teacher ...  Read more

I have been working with him at home on the released ...  Read more
