  • Maybe we just had a really bad, disorganized, lame ISP teacher because she was late or missed most meetings and was not very supportive or helpful. Never told our family about classes until too late and was not told I could order games and kearning kits until another friend told me. Sure she meant well but not helpful. Very disappointing.

  • Gorman Learning Center is still one of the BEST independent charter schools around. Just to set the record straight everyone of the employees took a pay cut for the '07-'08 School year not just the Directors. Mine too was significant. It was very tough for everyone of us who remained to ensure the survival of Gorman.

  • The school itself has good directors. The problem presently in 2008-09 is the school board. The actual GJSD Superintendent that GLC has its charter with and the three other board members just seem clueless. The 3 directors took a 35-50% paycut for the '07-'08 year when the state put them at 60% ADA, and they stayed to right the ship after the disastrous leadership from Waldo Buford(the previous director). After they pulled Gorman Learning Center through and got 85% funding for this year,'08-'09, the board of Directors (bod), have been at odds with them for no apparent reason. The bod is just making their life miserable. Still, to their credit, they are serving because this type of school is a real need and benefit to parents who want to homeschool and can have books paid for. There are a lot of options curriculum wise to choose from to tailor learning to your child. The office staff is very helpful in Redlands. The Independent Study Teacher (IST) you get may vary. You want to get an experienced one. They let you choose a different IST if you don't like the one you have. It is important to get a good one during your child's high school years. Vicki McClure was awesome for us. Paperwork is a breeze. You have to meet once a month and bring all your child's work to have it looked at and graded. Depending where you are at, they have learning centers, and co-ops to facilitate learning. This is especially handy for high schoolers taking subjects that us parents don't feel we can help much in. These subjects include Biology, Geometry, Pre-Alg., Alg, AlgII, English, etc., high end art and music classes. The learning centers usually are on one or two days a week and are entirely voluntary. Classes range from K-12. This is awesome for errands for us on one day of the week, or a child free clean-up day. They offer field trips and a certain amount of funds to use on extra-curricular classes like dancing, swimming, martial arts, music lessons, gymnastics, etc. Our IST even told us about extra curricular activites our kids could get involved in the weren't attached to the school. Some had nominal fees; some were free. The more options for us the better. I always felt as if they were looking out for our best interests. This was an awesome school, but like I said, it all depends on the IST you get.
