Pierre Orbe, Principal
DeWitt Clinton High School, District #10 (Bronx)
Grade changing. Intimidating staff. Sending emails that threaten consequences to staff. Eroding grade integrity. Stripping kids of real learning by pushing grade recovery instead of attendance of classes.
This principal is very unorganized, unprofessional, and doesn’t know how to run a school. He tries to put in policies and regulation such as “hallway sweeps” which means if you are running late to class after the bell rings all teachers must close their door and students in the hallway are taken to the deans office for a 2-day suspension. Just for being late to a class you get suspended! He I afraid of the children in the school , doesn’t interact with them, he just walks pass without saying a single word. He tries to make students lives a living hell. He needs to be fired from being principal or the DOE needs to inspect the school and finally shut it down. He leaves the teachers to do everything for themselves doesn’t help them at all. He threatens them. What kind of principal is this that you want to run a high school? Student run wild and are out of control and fight frequently! But they don’t get suspended. You can get a 5-day suspension for bringing a phone into the school ! The DOE needs to fix this school immeadiately or shut it down!!
Same cart, new driver, same results. Was VERY unimpressed in my one meeting with Mr. Orbe.
Unfortunately, instead of accepting that the problems at Clinton may actually have to do with the quality of the students and lack of support from the administration, the DOE is implementing its usual solution – get rid of the entire staff save for the principal, bring in younger, cheaper teachers, and pretend that this will magically solve the school’s problems.
It’s sad how these DOE hacks – first Taveras and now Orbe – have been allowed to destroy this once-great institution of learning.
Ok so this is exactly the nonsense that I’ve been talking about. You want to stick teachers, particularly ATRs which I currently am into a very dangerous place to work? I’ll have no underling with in sure less than the years experience I have use scare tactics on me. Didn’t the BoE learn from Tavares who was a fat joke?! Sounds like another Irus Bile/Grismaldy Laboy/other inept wanna be principals who are unavailable&unqualified to the max!! Who loses in this industry…….the kids!! Removing valuable subjects like business, culinary arts, automotive, real music&part classes(not videos) but live bands have destroyed our children. Small schools SUCK WIND! My uncle attended Clinton in the late 50s/early 60s as did many of his contemporaries. My ex-husband attended there and came back to work@Dwc for a minute. TOTAL heartbreak to see what has become if a beautiful edifice! The main entrance rotunda is to die 4 with such ornate flooring. The NYC BoE has let education lapse into the dark ages!!
Same s***, different day. This principal creates his own rules, and wonders why the school is collapsing around him. He’s now jeopardized the college chances of every student who took this horribly mismanaged exam.
CLOSE THIS SCHOOL DOWN. FIRE ALL THE ADMINISTRATORS. THEY ARE DOING ONLY THE WORST JOB IN THE HISTORY OF WHAT ONCE WAS A GREAT PLACE TO LEARN.
THERE ARE AP’S CHANGING GRADES. FOR THE PRINCIPAL. KEEP HIM HAPPY, YOU KNOW. TEACHERS, COUNSELORS FALSELY ACCUSED AND BEING DISCIPLINED FOR NOTHING BUT TRYING TO DO THEIR JOB TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY. HALF OF THE SCHOOL IS WORKING REALLY HARD TO GET THIS PRINCIPAL FIRED. AND FIRED HE WILL BE. HE IS A SOCIOPATH. WORST TEN TIMES OVER THAN TAVERAS.
Raging Mad, Thank you! I have lived this HELL first hand.
Amazing principal, knows exactly what he’s doing for the better future of DWC. Making the school a better and more safe place to learn at. Changing it for the better. Fights became less and class cutters as well. Amazing principal. Keep up the good work.
Really??? You are either one of his AP goonies or in with him at school. You are an idiot. Amazing principal. OMG . please . Cannot stop laughing . This man is a sociopath , narcissist and his reign will soon come to an end. There are many powers that be in that school that are working hard on that. And even after we will be gone there are the ‘TEN OF US CLUB’ that will continue to make sure he goes bye by. And we are all going to testify for Mr.^^^^^. He will be back, and Orbe will be out. So feast on that. he is corrupt. Omg , yes THE GROWTH AWARDS. If you are an AP defending him you must know how embarrassed we felt finding out that growth awards were given to students who actually deserved to FAIL. Furthermore, the corruption is deeper than that. Cannot divulge all we know. Yet. So take your naïve self and WAKE THE F&&&& UP.
You’re a teacher? Learn to spell please.
Oh and by the way , you AMAZING PRINCIPAL , you cannot lay a fart in that school without everyone knowing everything.
Everyone speaks everything . From the parent coordinator , the aides, the paras, the teachers, the secretaries helper. So the school know EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME. And our skedulas speak for themselves . We copy and record everything. WE SHALL PREVAIL even after we leave. And we are not leaving in happy, the truth is We just did not apply. We would rather leave and never see his face than stay. However we will rejoice when we hear they take him out in handcuffs. SO WE PRAY.
Really, Pierre? CRAIGSLIST? There are several things illegal about this, never mind all the union contracts you’re violating. You’re making Taveras look like a choirboy with all the crap you’re doing.
Lucky Pierre strikes again!!!!
HARRY HOPLESS.. LAUGH AT THIS…. THREE OF THE PEOPLE HE REHIRED ARE IN THE TEN OF US CLUB. A CLUB TO BRING HIM DOWN WITH TRUTH ONLY. HA HA HA
Go get him. I hope he falls flat on his ass.
farina ha put a protective coating n his narcissitic lil ass. so this needs to come out. Mayor Deblasio has allowed this after it was our unions that allowed him to win. we got a bad deal.
Mulgrew had a conversation in a uft meeting not long ago in which he told one of our beloved retiree that FARINA left him untouchable. I would like to know ..Why?this man will do anything illegal and does not care whose livelihood he ruins. Deblasio, I BLAME YOU AND WE WILL WANT ANSWERS FROM HIM.
We are now taking this to the mayor’s office. He has to go .His AP’s have to go. He has trained them to be exactly like him. They make teacher’s lives miserable, they expect grade changes by any illegal means necessary . Mr. Peter Volkert AP of security…Fight breaks out… he is nowhere to be found. Mr. Deep, worst AP administrator. Has not one cojon. His secretary is the worst secretary we have ever had . Since her first day the mistakes are in the hundreds. Teachers hate her Evil woman. The principal’s secretary knows not a single thing.I know of people who are constantly complaining that they have to do her job . She can’t even direct a phone call to the proper departmet. In a school where the majority is hispanic, she speaks not a word of spanish. Who hires a secretary from the street pushing cell phones? What a horrible mess.
Prinipal.. gotta go. Deep … gotta go. Volkert….gotta go. Watson (sec) gotta go
.Deep AP…. gotta go. India (sec)…. gotta go. INCOMPETENT.
I agree with everything except Ms. Watson. I have known her for a long time. She is a fantastic secretary and that can be supported by anyone she has ever worked for. She was placed in a terrible situation and made to do a job that was not hers. She should have been in her own office so staff members could talk to her privately without the administration listening. Hopefully karma will take care of all those who destroyed DWC.
SOONER THAN LATER
Yet more evidence of Orbe’s abuses of the 3020a process. It seems he’s taken Taveras’ brief a step further.
