The school has no integrity. There is no justification for the staff they laid off. This has made the existing staff feel insecure and in wonderment when they will lose their positions as well. Also kindergarten teacher looped with those preschool students and those students felt secure and safe and were growing leaps and bounds academically. They don't understand what has happened and feel abandoned.

Preschool attendance is low this year but has only been in existence for one year. GEO lays off elementary and high school staff as a result. Instead of laying off a preschool teacher, they laid off a kindergarten teacher. The preschool teacher's license is in TX and has only started working there this school year. They just hired a title one teacher this year and then laid her off two months later. They laid off the Director of PreK -2nd grade. She got the preschool licensed in one year with the State and On My Way Pre K. She is 9 months pregnant. They laid another instructional coach who started a brand new library for the school and then laid her off. How awful can you get. They did this without any warning and at the end of the day so that we couldn't even say goodbye to our students.

I'm impressed with the staff and students at 21st CCS, each and every member of the staff takes the time to give each student what they need to succeed in life! 21st CCS has earned its A grade with the state.

Excellent school, there's a small teacher/student ratio and the teachers and staff really care about the students, and about helping students succeed here, and beyond when they go off to college. School is led by a very strong, dedicated principal, Ms. West!

As a new member of the high school teaching staff, I am very happy to have joined this great school. The teachers truly care about each and every student. On any given day, you will find many of them here hours after school tutoring and coaching the students. Also, the parents are very involved. It is great having the help and support from the parents. I believe that 21st Century Charter School @ Gary is a great school that is dedicated to providing its students with a strong education.

This school has a great group of teachers and great leadership. In addition, the school is the best Charter School that Ball State University authorizes. 21st Century offers a great alternative to traditional public school in the Northwest region and they offer opportunities for every student to succeed.

I approve of this school in every way! From my experience, the students are treated as young aspiring adults, and are expected to achieve at their highest potential. The students are not met with METAL DETECTORS to walk through every morning expecting to learn academics. The teachers have PERSONALITY which goes a long way in this world and helps the students to obtain the same. My child loves this school, and I have noticed his self esteem skyrocket since attending. Last but not least, 21st Century has a dynamite principal...u go girl! :)

Since the writing of this article on this school, test scores have improved greatly and the school met its annual year progress goals for the 2007/08 school year. In addition, the first graduating class of 18 students boasts 15 original members from the freshman class and 13 of the 18 will be furthering their education.

I had a horrific experience in every area (academics not good, no extra-curricular, no qualified teachers, no parent involvement, no school safety - do I need to say more!!) Your child's curriculum is extremely important - as parents we don't want our children left behind in today's world. That's defintely what will happen at 21st Century Charter@Gary. They are not ready!!!
