We have had two children at the school and have had some truly wonderful teachers, which is always a gift. That said, we have also seen the administrative staff make decisions in such a way that shows little regard for the students. Sending teachers away midyear, or swapping teachers in the middle of the semester unexpectedly is the norm here. Little value seems to be placed on providing consistency for the youngest children. As with other Austin-area schools, there is also a steep emphasis on standardized testing.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

Some teachers are absolutely amazing. Others, not so much.

This school is very pleasing. There is exceptable behavior and learning here and the students are also learning a grade ahead of their actual grade. The school also has great fundraisers such as pennies for peace(Africa's schools) and walk for water (clean water). There are Donors that pay for the field trips are fairs/carnivals. If you want to come to this school, expectations are high here so get started! From Pre-kindergarten to PhD!

This school is fantastic. All of the staff and teachers seem to be on the same team, the student body is incredibly diverse and their approach to teaching considers the whole child, yet is academically rigorous.

This is a great school. My kids started going when the school first opened, and now that my oldest has graduated and moved on to AISD, she excels. It has really put her ahead of her new AISD classmates.

My son loves this school. The parent involvement is impressive and the teacher-parent communication is great. They require a home visit which is kinda intrusive to me, but they go out of their way to earn as much about each student as possible to help them be successful. Most of the teachers have a master's degree and several have their ph'd or are working on one. My son loves the many,many field trips and the hands-on learning approach. There is no tolerence for violent behavior so the kids feel safe and can focus on learning. I would suggest this school to any parent trying to find a great school for their chid. It's in the heart of east Austin, so It's very diverse. wealthy,poor,black,white, muslim, christian,etc...etc.... all of the students are valued and treated equally, and that is priceless.

I love UT Elementary! Great communication, leadership and parent involvement. The teachers really care about the students and there are lots of interesting, engaging, interactive activities. My son loves it here!

This is a great school. It encourages family involvement, respect, and is really committed to providing a good education to the students. The TAKS tests scores are great and reflect how hard the teachers try to prepare the kids for testing.

This school is a godsend for those lucky enough to get in. Very happy with the teachers and all the staff. They make the programs fun for the whole family!
