I am a grandparent raising my four grandchildren. Three attend AES and I'm hoping we will still be in the area when our last one starts school in 3 years. I can't find adequate words to express my thanks to Dr. Ball who is a wonderful, devoted kindergarten teacher; Mrs. Moorman is a disciplined, (exactly what my granddaughter needed) compassionate first grade teacher; and Mrs. Keough is an intelligent, caring fourth grade teacher. Mr. Campbell and the entire staff at AES have all been very kind, helpful in every situation. It's the best elementary school that I've ever had the opportunity to work with!!! I never worry about their safety, education or moral standards while they are at school. I'm older than most parents whose children attend AES, so I think that I'm a pretty good judge of character and I surely wasn't born yesterday. Thanks Astatula Elementary School for doing such a wonderful job in educating my three precious grandchildren. They love to go to school!!!

My daughter LOVES going to school everyday. However, the ELC program needs a better director and support staff. They leave so much to be desired! They are glorified babysitters, that's it. If you are not Spanish, you are dirt to them and they take it out on your kids!!!

I used to be a student at astatula back in 2005 and all the teachers I met understood me and my classmates. They would help us one on one before and after school. Even though I only went to k-3 before I moved, I met almost every teacher there. The P.E. teacher was the best so far. I really like how they understand the parents unlike here in the H-E-B school district here in Texas .

We love AES! We drive over 15 miles one way for the kids to go to school here. The majority of the teachers are GREAT! My only concern with the school has been safety of the children when visitors come on campus. I know there are laws that have to followed, but I just don't like that anyone can come on campus, but with that said there are just not enough good things to say about this school, from the big play production at the end of the year to PTO functions, this school really does try hard to make elementary education a memorable experience. Teachers, TA's, volunteers, office staff, and all other staff are approachable and polite. Ms. Kay. and Mrs. Cutter made our year last year. The entire 5th grade team is awesome.

We love AES! Mrs. Cockcroft, Mr. Campbell and all the teachers are great. Our favorite teachers are Mrs. Gaetz, Mrs. Sears, Mrs. Richardson, Mrs. Symonds, Mrs. Walter, Mrs. Roupas, Mrs. Ferguson, Mr. & Mrs. Burris, Mrs. Kilmer, Mrs. Reid, Mrs. Salamon, Mrs. Mauldin and Coach Boyd. This school enriches the lives of children and teaches them to be a caring and constructive contributor to the community they live in. My children have learned the true meaning of success at AES and that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. I am so grateful to everyone involved at AES!

My grandson who is in kindergarten attends AES and I am very fortunate to have the pleasure of being able to volunteer in both Dr. Balls and Mrs. Gaetz class rooms. They both are wonderful, caring, devoted teachers. I have nothing but admiration for them both with all that they do. My hats off to them both!!!

Not only is this school rated academically an 'A' school according to the state standards, but as an arts magnet offering enrichment classes in drama, vocal and instrumental music, visual and graphic arts, media, and P.E. Extra curricular activities abound and are truly amazing for an elementary school! Family involvement activities are well attended.

Astatula Elementary offers a positive learning environment where administrators and staff alike place high importance on the success of our children. My son attended K thru 5th grades and the overall experience was very good. The teachers worked well with me to address his individual needs. Counselors and principals made a point of knowing me and my child by name.

Wonderful school. I went there Kindergarten through 3rd grade (4 years). I had great teachers. I was identified as gifted in 3rd grade and it was hard to leave such great school. The teachers went out of there wy for everyone. They cared, were kind, and were good at teaching. I am now in 5th grade and if that school had a gifted program I might think about going back!

The teachers and staff at Astatula are friendly, respectful, and desire academic excellence in every student. They make learning fun and have no problem admitting personal areas for improvement while focusing on areas of accomplishment. Specifically you could not ask for any better 4th grade teachers than Cathy Burris and Lynda Ferguson,as their enthusiasm for teaching could be used as models across the United States.

My son is in kindergarten. His teacher, Mrs. Gaetz is excellent. She is always available (even in the evenings) to discuss my child.
