    "When my child started at this school in September I was excited about the teachers & education that they were promised. However, we found out things the hard way. All children with an IEP were grouped in 1 class. When asked if they can be removed because of behaviors in the class we were told 'NO" by the Special Education Coordinator. They do not use textbooks for MATH they use a math program called Excel and they do not teach concepts or hold the children accountable for knowing the concepts. Books - the children do not read books - except if go to Reading Club. They use workbooks or an outdated book called Storytown. The Science and Social Studies teachers tries but there is no consistency in his teaching and my husband and I could never figure out what our child was learning. Gym - just forget it - you will never know what they are doing in that class. The Spanish teacher was nice at first but I am not so sure now. PSSAs - the teacher refused to read the questions as per the IEPs - claiming they would get into trouble. My husband and I moving on - BETTER SCHOOL DISTRICT AND BETTER SCHOOLS. RAPCS tries but w/o good teachers and books it does not work there."

    "The first year my son attended he had a rocky start, but the teachers kept his father and I in the loop about his grades. This is his second year and the lack of effort by the teachers, and staff to assist you is the worse I've ever experienced. My child is not happy; he has been bullied and will not be attending this school next year. They need to assist all students that need help not just there "favorites", every child deserves the chance to be successful and we shouldn't have to pay a private school to achieve that."

    "I am glad to say that my child is leaving soon. Its a good school, dont get me wrong but math is still a problem for my child. Some teachers cursing and insulting my kids. it been a problem since the split the school into liberal arts and environmental science. Some of the teachers are very good. One way they can make a difference is by getting more experience teachers."

    "I have went to this school for 4 years and I'm in my last year. I most say I only went to school because my sister went there, this is like any poor educating Philadelphia school its just a little better. So far since I been at this school teachers cursed at us 3 teachers walk out and quit because they couldn't put up with the kids behavior. If I were a parent wanting a really good education for my child I would not send my child here but I most say here I found long lasting friendship and that the only good outcome."

    "Change. This year has been very challenging for parents, students and Schools and my son was one of those who was impacted. We live in a school district that does not have school choice. I was please to find an excellent charter school that has "variety". I felt that my son was being pushed to hard the first month of school but with the seasoned teachers, good academics and plenty of extras like Spanish, Art, Music, Gym, etc. I know that I found a great school. Richard Allen Prepatory school sincerely cares about their students and so do the teachers. I am very pleased with what I am seeing so far this school year and I am looking forward to a GREAT SCHOOL YEAR."
