Well, like the other parent, we moved to our house because of the price and I was also disappointed in the quality of the neighborhood schools. They haven't passed their AYP tests for one thing. However, we made the best of what we had. My daughter began at Tate in the 2nd grade and now she is in the fifth grade, gets straight A's and she is the student body president. The first one they've ever had there! Things have improved with the new principal, and my daughter loves it there, she goes early every day and attends almost every function they offer. It is an "at risk" school, but it won't get better if all the good kids go somewhere else. You can make a difference by supporting school activities and having a positive attitude about school. They have some really dedicated teachers there, come check it out for yourself- you might be surprised.
We moved into the area because our home was priced right. Little did we know the type of kids and parents that attend this campus. School looks nice from the outside, but is filled with kids with poor behavior and foul mouths. As we pulled up for the first day of school kids were namecalling and pushing and shoving into us and not one kid said sorry. This school is in a bad area with bad kids. Stay away and dont attend.
