This school is fabulous! I just read the review of the other parent and I had a child go through that school at that time in 2011 and I remember one not so nice teacher but to my knowledge the principal had that teacher removed. I also had one go through recently and they loved it, passed their TCAP and made goid grades. Great teachers, great administrators and a wonderful place for middle schoolers.

My child attended half a semester in 6th grade when I removed him because of a burnt out abusive teacher that had been kept on staff because she got good test scores and the school couldn't afford to lose her. My son was straight A's and in the Gifted program.
