I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD LOVE THIS SCHOOL, BECAUSE IT WAS SO CLOSE TO HOME, BUT THIS LAST YEAR IT HAS BEEN AWFUL, THE TEACHERS LACK ALOT OF INSTRUCTURAL GUIDELINES AND SO THE PRINCIPAL, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND ANYBODY TO BRING THIER CHILD HERE. ALWAYS ON FRIDAYS THIS ONE HISPANIC LADY IS SELLING FOOD INSIDE THE SCHOOL, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A SCHOOL. MY SON SAID HE LIKES THE SCHOOL, BUT DO NOT. I DONT GET TOLD ANYTHING, HARDLY ANY FLYERS SENT HOME.
Speer Elementary is a great school with a dedicated staff. It employs teachers from a variety of backgrounds and races, giving the students a truly cultural experience. Speer strives to facilitate excellent education, opportunities, and successes for every child. The bilingual population there is enriching and dynamic, and the programs are outstanding.
I volunteer every week at this school and have lunch with a student. I can only comment on the cafeteria-- wow!! adults super nice, kids well-behaved--- amazing compared to many schools. Families have many challenges in this neighborhood, but kids are loved here for sure!
My child attended this school for 2 years. We no longer live in this state so she no longer attends. I at the time found this school lacking in some areas. Parent participation and disapline.
There are some problems at this school. My son went to school here for 2 weeks and he cried for 2 weeks until I was able to move him to a different public school in Arlington where is is very happy now. The principal was way in over her head. She should not be in that position. I was sad that AISD has a school this poorly managed.
