I thought RPs 205 schools were bad, this is ten times worse my kids feared for their safety at this school.

My son just started Galapagos and I really like the school. My son has adhd and I strongly believes that they will meet his needs. The teachers have shown me that they really care about my son education's needs. Miss. Starret, has gone the extra mile for my son in explaining how to do his work. I've never heard such a thing as sentence starters and paragraph starters until he enrolled in this school a few weeks ago. Most teachers wouldn't go that extra mile because they usually say their over worked and they can't explain every single step to a child because they have other students' but that was not Miss. Starret's approach, she helped him and he finished it up. In my opinion, attitude, plays a key role on how kids and teachers perceive each other. We all have different learning styles and teachers have to adjust to each child learning style differently. My son didn't have a report card but I went in to meet with all of his teachers anyway. Especially after looking at some of the positive and negative reviews, I was ecstatic to see and meet some of the instructors. I can honestly say, they are a bunch of focused individuals. I have most of all of my son instructors phone numbers, including the Principal (how rare is that). They seem to have a very good OPEN DOOR POLICY. I must say, they are on top of things over there. I'm a very over protective parent when it comes to my child's need. Especially with his adhd and attention span I have to be over protective. This school has me excited about my son's future in high school. If he is tardy to class they have this kickboard system that I can see everything he has done so it's quite obvious my son won't be getting away with being late to another class. when he comes home I can talk to him about what his positive and negative actions were for that day. With the kickboard he has to tell me, if not, I'll see it anyway on the kickboard. ConsIt'll be nice if they could offer classes like kennedy middle school, 1st, 2nd and 3rd period. It'll make kids feel more responsible to make sure they are not getting to the next class late. Additionally, it would be great if they offered discounts for the school uniform. I purchased almost $150 of spirit wear at my son's prior school and he had almost 20 shirts. Nonetheless, so far so good but I'll post another review once I've established a better rapport.

Galapagos is an outdated concept that is parading itself around as a pathway to college. There are so few tables in the middle school that students eat lunch sitting on the floor, there are not even computers in most classrooms. Their poor management forces many teachers to quit during the year and the students have no stability. The only thing the school cares about it making money to pay the higher-ups, no wonder the Chicago location closed.

Gallapagos is academically strong but lacks real discipline of behavior in the classroom and buses which must be enforced if children are going to achieve full potential. Are teachers intimidated by some students and maybe even the threatened by disfunctional behavior of parents? Outdoor activity and sports needs to come into play for students to release energy and learn teamwork. This should not be used solely for rewards in behavior. Music and arts must also be used to develop creativity in reports, presentations and math. School administrators need to be more available for parents and family to communicate one on one and not just for the political leaders in the community. Follow-up is sad and needs to be addressed. Where is the parent - teacher organization?

Clearly the best charter school in the city. The academics are strong, the school teaches character. It is a model for the other schools in Rockford.
