    "I HAD two kids at this school-1 graduated this year and 1 who finished 5th grade. Well let me say this for starters-the school is great for parents who need help w/discipline but it lacks and I mean lacks in educating the kids. My son was stuck in the IEP class where the teacher only worked at 2 schools with 3 years experience well I was very confused about what was being taught for math, reading and writing. There was no consistency in the class OR the other classes. Then they have no books nor did they have to read books or novels. They also did not have weekly spelling, definition tests...get the idea? The teachers also made their own rules this year with regards to state testing. They put kids in a small group for testing but then refused to read the questions that they were suppose to read to them. This new teacher kept claiming she had a legal documents stating that she just could not do that. Then this comes as no surprise - the principal states that she is leaving at the end of the school year. The children were done school on 6/13 and rather than have them meet and greet the 6th grade teachers they watched movies and played games. RAPCS is not a GREAT school."

    "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."
