Gallaher (Robert S.) Elementary School
Grateful to: Teacher

Mrs Probst is the kind of teacher that you would like a child to learn with. She understands she shows concern she notices your weak areas and strengthens it gradually, so by the end of the school year you have fully advanced to the next level and will be ready for the next grade with no worries. She makes it easy on parents to help your child grow, have discipline but most of all respect for people in general.

Gallaher has been absolutely fantastic with our autistic daughter. After a year of regression in a "special" school with the Christina School District we felt hesitant about yet another school. The staff at Gallaher has made it their business to know our child and the IEP she has is literally the "Bible" as far as her educational program is concerned.

This school has frequent staff turn over. Which is always a problem indicator in any school. A school is only as good as the supports for all students and documented actual progress. They lack support for children with iep's in addition to classroom support for teachers. If your child is an average learner, they will do OK, standard researched based programs that, "Anyone can teach, based on the scriptured nature of the program", Haha. Expectations for LD children and children from poverty are low and not alotted instruction that is taught effectively. Your child will be aged out of the school system without being prepared for society or to thier ability. If your child needs support other than a typical learner beware..no expectations or low expectations, support varies with teacher. Not a school that is fair to all children, which is the bases of NCLB. They teach to the test, which is the explaination for the blue ribbon award. To a concerned teacher or parent, recommend going to the Brandywine school district special PTA website, read the article about low preforming schools that embraced NCLB. Inspiring. Good Luck.
