    I tried to enter this school through lottery process but wasn't successful. After reading these reviews for LEARN maybe going there would have been such a great idea after all. I went to the open house and was skeptical of the whole process when the staff tried to push applicants for Romano Butler to one of their new schools which isn't even built yet on Carroll & Sacramento Ave. I just felt something strange was going on when they were bad mouthing CPS neighborhood schools when in actuality LEARN should be doing much better on the ISAT since they get kids from more affluent backgrounds even though they claim to receive low income students. I found a great school for my child and I'm happy with my results.

    Don't send your children to LEARN. If you seek a quality education for your child go elsewhere. This establishment is more like a 3 ring circus than an educational institution. The students are no longer disciplined for their actions; they spend numerous hours a day in a room governed by a pseudo-"warden" and NOT in a classroom learning. The majority of the teachers are great but will not remain and are desperate to leave. Nobody is happy at this "school." The administrators are a joke. If you request help it generally takes days to receive action. They are simply too busy cleaning up the numerous messes than to aid their teachers in becoming better at their jobs. Students are bribed with various trinkets in addition to more valuable items in order to work hard on standardized tests. Their is also a huge racial divide at the school. Students have poor role models in the support staff whom are unable to provide a positive influence on these young minds. Instead they choose to perpetuate the stereotype thereby furthering as opposed to closing the achievement gap. Long story short don't send your kids to LEARN Campbell. You'd be much better off ANYWHERE else!

    The quality of this school has really failed. They continue to change principal like every year. The new principal ms.johnson was great at learn when she was not in leadership meaning she showed she cared before she became a principal.Now all she cared about is parking her lexus across the street in front of the school showing her students her rims when alot of students need help to be on track with there reading and math. Then they charge for there summer school which only for 2 weeks what can a kid learn in 2 weeks and couldnt learn in a year.

    My daughter has been attending LEARN Excel Charter School for three years now. The campus on Congress Pkwy. Academically its a good school I love it! However the staff is NOT on one accord! The leadership staff doesn't listen to the concerns of the parents and students. The concerns fall on deaf ears! The staff do work together!!!!!!!! The turnover rate is extremely high! A child needs stability! Teachers are leaving in the middle of the year there's a new principle every year its ridiculous! My child will be going to a different school next year!

    My daughter has been at Learn for 3 years now. She did 2 years of PreK (she had a fabulous teaching team Ms. Bander and Mrs. Brown) they prepared her for 2nd grade and she was only going to Kindergarten. I love this school I think it is one of the best schools on the Westside of Chicago and if you are in need of a school that will keep your child on target and help them to be successful and independent your look is over. Learn Charter School (Romano Butler Campus) is the place you are looking for )

    We have been going to this school for 5 years. It's a great school to learn! My children are more advanced in math and reading compare with the other children their age. They have a long school day there and fewer holidays. Teachers are doing a very good job in educating students in Learn. The only one thing I wish for the school to become more diverse.

    My kids used to attended Learn. One went through 3rd grade and the other spent two years in pre k. The school started out wonderful. Although I believe the leadership (board) disagree with the principals and it causes confusion for everyone involved. While there we had three different principles teachers left in the middle of the year and I was tired of the constant transition. When the fourth principal started she didn't communicate with the parents and there was no explanation for why the incumbent left. I think this school has the potential to be one of the best schools in chicago because of the dedicated teachers and parents. I left the school once I realized that several of the teachers were leaving (some of the best). We have since gone to private school to catch my kids back up educationallly. They need an educated experienced professional as a Principal with appropriate teaching certifications.

    I have been a substitute at Learn Romano Butler for going on one year now and have had nothing but positive experiences there. I enjoyed seeing that the pricipal cared as much about helping the high achieving students as she did about the lower level students. The Saturday prograam that was implemented was excellent and took learning to another level. L.E.A.R.N is a great place to take your child. Pre-k is not just play it is full out curriculum and they leave reading!!!!!

    I was a little hesitatnt about this school because of the location on Congress Parkway. However this school has exceeded my expectations! The exceptional quality starts at the head and filters down. The principal has a through knowledge of each student and what their academic needs are. No child is left behind! The students learn each skill and are made to have a detailed knowledge of that skilll inside and out -not just on the surface level. When several students were not meeting expected goals the principal emplemented mandatory afterschool tutoring... I can not say enough about the quality and care out into each child. Words can not express my gratitude.

    This is a great school. My son is in third grade now and has been attending this school since Pre-K. He can read and write well above level and has been reading since Pre-K. This school has an exceptional curriculum that pushes the children above and beyond.I would recommend this school to anyone.

    This is a Great school I am so impressed. My daughter is in the 1st grade her teacher in Ms. Nakanishi she is the bomb I couldnt ask for a better teacher. She really cares about her students if my child is slacking any area I know that day I dont have to wait until report card pick up to find out anything. Learn has a great support system the whole staff seems to love what they do. Learn encourage parent involement so everyone can have an inpact on the students. I wouldnt ask for a better school.

    My son has attended PK at LEARN and is currently enrolled in Kindergarten. His reading and writing skills are amazing. We do Phonics and Math homework every night and the Kindergarteners are included in the schools mobile laptop program. My son raves about playing games on the Laptop in class. Results from LEARN Charter are of private school quality.

    I really like the fact that they have a teachers aid in each class reducing the student/teacher ratio to about 11 1. Also they require each child to read 45min per night (5 days a week). In addition they stress character development such as requiring kids to 'fix it' when they mistreat or offend someone. These things plus their skilled and very dedicated faculty makes Learn one of the top schools in Chicago. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants a quality education for their child. The test scores speak for themselves

    I think that learn is a wonderful school. The class sizes are great and staff are very involved with the children. Learn is one of the best schools in chicago.I myself traveled from Calumet City every day to take my daughter to school there and it was well worth it. They even have teacher aides with small class sizes so that every child can get the help that they need. T.Johnson
