I feel that Reconciliation Academy is a wonderful school. As a parent, there are a few key things I look for in a school, and Reconciliation Academy delivers on these criteria. First and foremost is class size. The largest class size is 22 - which ensures the right amount of attention and focus can be given to each student. Secondly, the dual language program is very important to ensure that students are set up for success in their future. While my developing skills in English is critical, I love the fact that the Spanish heritage/culture of the students will not be lost. Also the Principle and staff is available to speak on any concerns a parent may have. Lastly, I have heard that RA has scored better than many of the surrounding schools in testing. It's always good to have an objective comparison/perspective on overall performance. Based on these factors, I would recommend RA to others.

Reconciliation Academy may not look outstanding from the outside but the education that is taking place on the inside is beyond words. Teachers, staff, leadership teams and parents help make sure these students are getting an excellent education. Teachers go above and beyond to insure progress for the kids. Students are loved, nurtured and the first priority at RA. The Principle is hardworking and on top of everything that happens at the school. He hold teachers accountable and expects nothing but the best. I would gladly send my child to Reconciliation Academy.

The best kept secret in Dallas has to be Reconciliation Academy! We have been very pleased as parents to know that our child is being enriched, nurtured and most of all being led by compassionate teachers and staff who care about our child individually. I have to say, that we have never experienced educational service like this, from the moment we get eye contact with the Principal each morning to greet us, to the end of the day, when we get to see his teachers, has been an over all supporting experience. I highly recommend this charter school, as a parent and educator. Submitted by a parent

I am a staff member who really enjoys collaborating with teachers who are concerned that their students are learning. The teachers contact parents regularly, tutor after school, are willing to try different interventions and strategies with their students, and also ask for help when they don't know what else to do. Reconciliation Academy also has a caring and supportive principal and administrative staff that supports the hard-working teachers, even if they themselves have to come into the classroom and start tutoring small groups too. A staff like this is going to help the students do the very best they can!

This school really cares about the kids and their families. The staff don't just have a "nine to five" attitude. They do what it takes to help all the students be successful. The instructional staff is innovative, working with one of the top bilingual consultants to develop an outstanding dual language program.

This use to be a great school!!!!! My son went here for 5yrs. and I started to see a change in the teachers they were selecting for that year. My son first grade teacher kept giving my son the same grade every report card and I spoke with her on how I could help improve him to an A, and she said she hardly, ever, barely give them A's and that made me mad. The old teachers were more caring and taught better than these new teachers. All they do is scream and hollow at your kids. I have asked over and over again for homework and all I get is reading logs and 1 PAGE a day for homework. I truly miss the old teachers there and hate I had to pull my son out of there. It really was a great school. I'm really sad to see it has went down like it has.

I just called the school and found out that the school can't use the youth center this year. It's finished, but they can't afford to lease it from Reconciliation Outreach? Why did the board member lie about that in a review? Does anyone at that school know what's going on? Why can't they pay the lease? Why don't they own the building? How long is this place really going to be around? I'm not surprised that they are "Academically Unacceptable" and they have a great schools rating of 1 out of 10 If I had know all of this before, I would have taken my daughter out sooner.

I agree that the building always looks dingy and dirty... especially the bathrooms! Plus a lot of the time it smells bad in the whole building, like sewerage. Many of the people you see walking around are part of the Reconciliation Outreach program. It is a faith-based program that helps ADULTS who are addicted to drugs and alcohol and/or are homeless. Their meetings are in the same building as the school, so yes, there are "strange" people walking around and through the school everyday. It is a great program for adults, but it's no place to send your children to school.

great teachers, kids learn so much and are cared for! Great location to help kids stay in school. There have been playground issues, and I know since there are problems with the city's cooperation, not considering the children at all, this has been a frustration for the parents and RA Staff!! Hopefully the City will start to do something so the compromised wall due to a city water leak can be repaired and our playground OPEN again! I am glad the school will be able to use an amazing new youth center for activities this next year.

I am a board member of RA and have worked with the school from the beginning. The city of Dallas had a leak under the street in front of the school that was not detected until too late. By that time the leak had caused the wall on the school building to be compromised and the playground had to be closed. The city of Dallas has refused to help the school restore the wall and the insurance company had waited until now to offer any help. Tne funds they offer will only cover half the coast of repair for the wall and now we wait for help from the city to begin the repairs. The school has done the best they could with a bad situation and now has hope for repairs to begin. The school will be able to use a new Youth Center that is next to the classrooms this fall that offers both soccer and basketball as well as a library and other sports for the children. I believe this will be a new beginning for the school and hope others will give us a chance to provide a free and safe school this fall.

My kids have been going here for 3 yrs now. The building on the playground side is gross and always dirty. It is an apartment building so strange people live there and walk around all the time. The bathrooms are always nasty. Nothing looks safe or clean anymore. The playground has had a big hole in it all year, so my kids never got to play on it one time. They told us it would be fixed back at the start of the year. Also, they have been saying for the last 3 years that the new school building was coming soon. That's part of why I have stayed so long. Every year they say they will have it next year. I was excited when they starting the building across the street and they have been telling us that it was going to be the new school. But I just heard from a lady in the office that the building wasn't the school and it wasn't even part of the school. It's a youth center and there wont be any classrooms inside! They keep lying to us. I wont be back again next year. Don't take your kids here, its not a safe place.

I am a first year parent for this school and after reading the reviews I can appreciate the honesty from a negative side as well as a positive side. If all the reviews were great or all bad then that would deter me from enrolling in this school because no school is perfect. We all can make improvements but it takes a group effort meaning Teachers, Principal, Students, and Parents. Discipline is the responsibility of the parent but the staff must also possess patience and empathy and understand that it will not change over night. Adults have a hard time changing themselves over night. It is great that the tuition is free but that should be irrelevant when searching schools, just because the school fits your pocket doesn't mean it fits your child and that should be what's most important. I don't think teaching is a SERVICE instead its a process that is used to educate OUR children. It blows my mind to know that a Pre-K was suspended on the second day of entering a new school. That is not an action that punishes or teaches the parent it actually effects the student who is still learning to understand the world. If that child was your Pre-K how would you honestly feel?

Good school this year, new principal and some new teachers, they are trying a new system in running the school this year. I love that they have Pre-k 3 & 4 all day for half day daycare and half day school for FREE is great. It is not always the school and its staff job to raise or correct a child, the parents must also be involved and follow the school rules as well. If a child does as he pleases at home and the parents allow him then it's not the schools job to teach them good attitude and proper Etiquette. I m grateful my child was accepted into PreK3 and I know he can get out of line at times so I have been working with him at home and have spoken with his teachers as well. The school has been growing and hopefully the change will help it grow more. Good to know that this school is available at no cost and if a parent feels they have bad service then maybe you should take your child to a private school where you actually pay money

I rate this school two stars because they have brought in a new principal and staff for the 2011-2012 school year. A pre-K student should not be wrote up on the first day, nor suspended on the second day of school from being a pre-K student. If so, the parents of that child should be notify of that write up on that day. That child is still in his/her stages of adapting to their NEW environment. I don't think they understand that this school also has preschoolers attending as well as older kids. The school is meant to teach the younger kids how to be a better student in the school environment. It does not benefit the children to be sent home as punishment for their undeveloped attitude and ways. There should be more structure and time allowed for disciplinary action with students, before resulting to suspension. Pre-K students need more attention then what has been shown this year. My kids have been attending this school for the last three years and I have never seen this type of discipline so yearly in the school year. He and some of the new staff make the school look bad. Wow, did my money pay for this bad service? (REFUND PLEASE!)

I'm an Aunt of a student... Well I have to say that this school is a breathe of fresh air. My niece has attended this school for 2 years now, so I have come to learn somewhat about it. She has great teachers who actually pay attention tot he behavior of the students. if they see the performance of the children changing they will take steps to make the child better and shine. Mr. Rubio and Mrs. Bullard are two awesome teachers. At first I was hesitant, but after seeing the way the staff & teachers love what they do, I am actually considering enrolling my 3.5 year old. This school is religious based and teaches dual language. I enjoyed the 2010-2011 Kindergarden class graduation which really ignited my fuel for information. The speaker spoke with such enthusiasm, and to see there was a wide range of ethnicity's that make up this school made it even better. Enrollment is up, as I was told, and there maybe a lottery. I look forward to seeing where this school goes.

This school has the potential to be a very good school. The unfortunate thing is that they do not have the space nor the adequate staff to handle the amount of kids that attend there. Most of the staff i know personally and my 2 younger kids went there last year and they loved, and still do for that matter, the teachers that they had. My concern is that they might continue to take kids in when they do not have the space or the staff to adequately handle all the kids.

Reconciliation Academy is the Charter School in Dallas to attend! Thought this is their second year; Administration, Staff & Faculty alike love their jobs and especially the kids. I am enrolling my child there again. I would recommend anyone near and far alike to enroll their child at Reconciliation Academy and also to show suppor by volunteering during the school year.
