My son has gone to this school since Pre-K and is about to start 3rd grade. There has been so much bullying since the beginning that my son dreads going to school. When the bullying was reported my son was questioned and made to feel like it was wrong to report it. Teachers are not very good at keeping there eye on the students therefore if they didn't see anything happen it apparently doesn't exist.
The lunch room is out of control also. Kids are screaming and throwing food and the lunch staff are put in control instead of teachers. The lunch staff has been seen yelling at the students instead of reasoning with them or reporting them to their teachers. My son was also put into the time out table for weeks without having done anything wrong. I reported this and it still took days to fix. I am trying to transfer him but waiting for approval.
Great school I have a 1st grader that reads very very well because of Veda Knox. Mrs Ravin is the best, she is now the principal, it seems she knows all of the kids by name and is very involved. She takes pride and it shows in her students. This school turns out some very smart kids. I love Veda Knox! My daughter loves it here also. No matter the teacher she tells me she loves that teacher.
Wow! While the teachers are working hard and making long strides with the children and the children are learning and it reflects by their TEA Recognized title, the office staff seems to be lacking in 'customer service' skills. They are the first impression of the skill, and if your lucky enough to get a phone answered or receive a happy greeting, you might look past them enough to see what a wonderful job the teachers are doing, in spite of....
