Our Approach

Galapagos Rockford Charter School believes in providing rigorous instruction for all scholars, based on common grade level standards.  Instructors use research-based practices and standards aligned curriculum to ensure that scholars are learning what is necessary for success in college and beyond.  In addition to grade level instruction based on standards, all GRCS instructors use data from classroom-based and standardized assessments to ensure scholar’s individual needs are met.  All scholars, regardless of their achievement level, receive small group reading instruction targeted to their needs.   Every subject area is guided by a clear set of standards that ensure scholars are mastering content and receiving equal instruction designed to both challenge them and meet their personal needs.
