Not bad, discipline needs to be a little more strict for some kids

It is plain to see that the teachers truly care about their students at this school. Unfortunately, this school does not have a PTO so it is difficult for parents to become involved. Most of the office staff is nice and helpful, but there is one secretary who is very rude to parents and teachers. The vice principal seems to know the most about what is going on in the school when it comes to individual students. I have yet to see the principal interact with the students. Unfortunately, TAKS seems to be the main focus of the students' learning. Every student even has to attend a TAKS tutorial class. It's great that everyone seems to display a positive attitude about TAKS, but too much emphasis is placed on passing the test.

Great School. Teachers, staff, administration all care about the success of all kids.
—Submitted by a staff


Posted February 3, 2006

This school has vastly improved over the last couple of years. There are now Open Houses and Parent's Nights. The kids love the announcements. Scores have improved and the campus is no longer on the needs improvement list under No Child Left Behind act since the new principal has taken over. The assistant princpal and princpal are active in the community and are always visible. If people with negative views actually took the time to know what is going on in the school other than focusing on themselves or their own child, they would see things differently.

The teachers are great (most of them). A few seem very grumpy and mad at the world. The attendance secretary on the other hand is very sweet. I don't feel the principal knows how to run the school. I feel someone needs to step in and look into how this school is being run and do an overhaul at the administration level. It's not the teachers. From a very concerned and active parent in the school district.
