I do not know if this school is still open in 2014 knowing the criminal that Karla Branch are maybe so? any child attending this school are not receiving a education at all. They are being bullied by adults and being treated poorly Karla Branch has the need to rule insanely she uses street tactics against the staff to do as she commands and those commands are against the students best interest I've never encountered a bunch of liars and trashy I've also witnessed a grown man her vice principal or whatever his position bully yell at a kindergarten lil girl child Karla Branch is an psychopath. No child should be in the prescence of these disgusting adults Close this school now if parents only knew of the treatments of your children Of course my child has left this school in 2011 I STILL THINK OF THOSE LEFT BEHIND and think of the stories from other parents that were told to myself it's a shame that Antioch, Ca has not intervened
my child attended this school for 1 year. we as parents like the teachers, But the behavior problems of some stundents is unacceptable. Also the parents of alot of students are not involved in the school. The kids have to eat outside for lunch. Class size was bigger than promise. very dissappointed. My child will not be going back. I will put my child in a private school.
I agree with the parent who put in that there are some bad kids there but equally they have really bad parents. I pulled my daughter out of this school not because of the teachers or administration. The staff work really hard to keep these kids on the right path in their lessons and many of the students are doing great there. I pulled my daughter out because I got tired of the horrible parents and thier children. They do not make their children responsible for anything. Staff has to constantly discipline and the teaching gets interrupted because of this. I worked a lot at the school and saw alot. They have good teachers and they are trying to teach. They have good lessons. The score for the school went up like 50 points so that goes to show the students are learning even with the problems. My daughter excelled. I just wish that the parents could see the potential of the school, then I think things would turn around. I would have liked for my daughter to stay there but the discipline problems and the student/parent problem made it really hard for her to stay.
Very bad school. My kids attended that for one week only. My kids asked me to take them out of this trash school, for the reason that this school treat the kids so bad and the kids that are at this school just don't like school. Some parents usually like this school, for the reason that it is from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The vice principal or whatever he is, just told me many times that kids are LIARS, to don't trust in my kids, because I told him my kids has been complaint about the teacher. Finally my kids are not at this school anymore.
A few bad apples truly can spoil the bunch no reference to children. I could give a long list of of issues but I will not waste time. There are a hand full of teachers who are motivating and enjoy working with children and I hope they find another place to share their talent.
This is a terrible horrible school. They seem to be unorganized and not very friendly. The staff seem to think that they are suppose to worship the principle and shes the only thing that matters. Something is terribly wrong with the setup and staff at this school and I wouldnt reccommend it to anyone. They need to be put out or at least a get a new principle
I am new to this school. So far I am excited about having my child attend RAAMP. We are looking forward to a good and productive school year.
This school did not live up to it's promises or student/parent expectations. The board and administration has lost focus of it's mission statement. The parents are treated poorly and there is very little communication from the administration about major changes within the school. There is very little accountability when it comes to policy changes and monies collected for school extras like field trips extracurricular activities and enrichment programs. There has been a teacher exodus (which is terrible for such a small school) and the student turn over is about 50% each year. The discipline issues are among the worst problems. How can a school function if the teachers and faculty can not work out their problems and find solutions? This school was a big disappointment. The teachers quality may have been great and there was a great deal of parent involvement but so many left the school there was almost no one to continue the PTO meetings. The final straw for me was when the vice principle (or whatever his unspecified position was) repeatedly told a guest that the school had "bad parents" and the charter school "belonged to the principal". My children attend another charter now.
