Research Triangle Charter Ratings & Reviews

December 07, 2017 Submitted by a parent
Coming from a DPS (Durham Public School) middle and elementary school RTCA has been such a blessing to my children. The teachers and staff are all committed to the children's success. Other parents are motivated. They have plenty of after school activities. (Their school band program is amazing!) The middle school is college prep. I have no problems communicating with teachers and the school is accessible to me as a parent at all times. When my children were in DPS schools they were not being assigned homework, I had practically no communication from teachers or school outside of the one call from the school principal, the teachers had no control of the students, getting into classrooms to volunteer or even getting on campus was near impossible. My kids grades were suffering and they were learning nothing because teachers spent most of their time addressing behavior issues in the classroom.I have none of the above named issues at RTCA. My children have plenty of homework. I can track their progress online through the parent portal. Parents are always welcome on campus. The teachers do a wonderful job of communicating regularly. My children are now actively engaged in their education and literally earning their grades. They have some unique ways to address behavior issues in the classroom and hold children accountable. Beyond academics, I have found the teachers and staff are very aware and in tune with children's personal issues and have been able to nurture "the whole child"The demographics of the children in RTCA is not much different than the local DPS schools. RTCA's approach and level of commitment to the students is effective and they are impacting the children of our community in a positive way! If I would of judged RTCA other reviews online I would of missed such a great opportunity for my kids.As far as reading the reviews from other parents I cannot speak on their experiences but I know personally as a mother to many children the administrators and teachers have a huge range of families that they interact with and we as parents cannot expect admin charged with bringing order to a school of 100s of children to bend to our whims. As parents we need to respect the boundaries and work WITH admin and teachers for the success of our children and their school and not against the ones striving for our students to be successful.

Horrible! The administration staff are bullies themselves! Principal Muhhamed thinks he is god and is very arrogant! He said, and i quote " the difference between arrogance and confidence is the heart". Dean Bowser is way to pushy with the students. She needs some more training on how to handle OTHER peoples children. I heard her yelling at my child and she didn't even realize my son called me and i was on the phone and heard everything. But then when i go off on her for the disrespect I am the " aggressive " one. They are horrible and if you are thinking of sending your child to this school DON'T!!!!

This school started out being very helpful the 1st year but never keep teachers every year the teachers from last year quit and leave and new teachers step (High Turnover)Teacher my son had bullied her students and the school stood by her and gave my son a hard time after he told me that he was being bullied. Would help my son when he didn't understand work in the class room would not reach back to me when I requested help with his assignments, would not give me a referral for after school program and tutoring as I had requested sent emails of altercations regarding my son and another child but was not my child in the altercation. Then when another child punched my son in the back of the head and stepped on his glasses they wanted to suspend my son for defending himself and did not notify me of the altercation at all my son told me when I picked him up. Would not allow the children to go to the bathroom and took away extra-curricular activities for the entire class when children would act up in the class room my son has always had great behavior. but did not like the fact that even though he was being good because some of the children were not good the entire class would be punished and recess would be taken away. or learning activities canceled by the teacher and the teacher would just stop teaching when the students would act up in the class. When I attempted to look into other schools they set my son up after I said I did not want him to attend the school they tried to suspend my son to keep him from qualifying for another school and destroy my son’s good behavior track record throughout school. They tricked my husband into withdrawing my child when I requested paper work needed to apply for new schools and told me that I would have to reapply if I wanted my son to stay in school until I could find another school and that if he returned he would be suspended for fighting (defending himself because the physical education teacher failed to protect him and left him to be punched in the back of his head and his glasses broken and left to defend himself and never notified me as a parent that the incident ever happen. I did not know my son was injured until my son told me when I picked him up from school that day.

When I first heard about RTCA I thought that they were doing great things at their school. I talked to several people who had sent their children/grandchildren there before and they told me to stay clear. After being hardheaded and sending my child to this school I now realize that I made a horrible decision. The leadership lacks proper experience to deal with children. They allow children to jump on weaker children and then when the child defends themselves they kick them out of school. This school is HORRIBLE when it comes to communicating with parents. If your child has a continuous issue with another child they will not allow you to have a conference with the other parent and child. The assistant principal lacks skills to deal with parents who actually care about their child's well being. Additionally, the lunch is subpar at best. They have to microwave each "mystery meal" and some days the truck that delivers the meals doesn't even show up.
