  • This WAS the best high school in the Rockford area, in all areas of review. No other high school in the area can come close to what the students at Ace received in terms of their education and the leadership they received from all the staff. I DO NOT understand why the board agreed to close it, but it must be politically motivated, because there is no reasoning to closing the only high school that had 100% graduation rate, students who were highly motivated to succeed and a staff who WANTED to see their students succeed. Ace was a diverse school, where the students all respected one another. What other high school in Rockford can say the same thing?

  • Mr.Cermack had a vision and ran with.He did not let board members or others hinder his goal for a better high school experience and a succesful future for students who WANT a future.If you have the same concerns as I do about your childs future,then I strongly encourage you to call "Michael"(he refers to himself by first name).He will put your mind at ease and give you HOPE.Thank You to Mr.Cermack and the community buisnesses that backed him on his quest for a better future for our children in District 205.
