We are very happy with this school after moving here from another area of town. All of our kids' teachers send a lot of information about what the class is doing and are very quick to respond to emails even during their busy day. The previous reviewers who say the parents are not involved obviously have not taken advantage of the many parent volunteer-led programs (Chess Club, several UIL Academic teams, Math Pentathlon, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Destination Imagination, and probably others).

We are not happy at all here. There is a ton of bullying that goes on with nothing done by the teachers or administrators to stop it. There is little to no communication between the school and parents. The PTA is nonexistent and poorly run. Parents are not involved with the kids here at all.

We are so disappointed in this school. We moved here from out of state and from previous reviews had great expectations- but none of those were met. The teachers and staff do NOT communicate with parents at all. The bullying that goes on at this school is constant and terrible and when you try to talk to the school about it you will be met with "kids are kids" and that it really isn't an issue. They are not concerned with coming up with a solution to fix things. My child's teacher has never made an effort to communicate with us. Classroom expectations are very low and I don't feel like my child has learned anything this year. The homework is pointless and doesn't relate at all to what is going on in class- although hard to know what happens in class since no work comes home from school to see what is being done... School clubs are very poorly organized and also there is a lack of communication with parents so they are not very successful. Overall it is a huge disappointment and we look forward to changing schools soon.

What a great school, wonderful structure, great teachers! Our son has been attending this school since 2013 when we moved to Austin, the improvement over his last school in Kingwood, TX was astonishing.

This school is awesome. when it started, I was worried how it would compare to Patsy Sommer but it has exceeded all my expectations. My son loves going to school every day. The teachers are awesome. The Project Based Learning is a great concept that they are teaching. They keep parents informed and take deep interest in any concerns you might have. School also uses new technologies. all kids in my son's class had a netbook (small laptop). when he showed me he created a powerpoint presentation in 2nd Grade, I was impressed. Overall, very happy.

Elsa England is an exceptionally good school. It has a great and the most dedicated principal( Ms. Stowe), sweetest and the most efficient front office staff( Ms. Tony, Ms. Patty and Ms. Christa), the warmest counselor ( Ms. Martha), the most lovable and caring school nurse ( Ms. Michelle) , the ever popular PE coach( Mr. Di Carlo and welcome Mr. Shore), the most talented music teacher(Ms. Bray), the most artistic art teacher ( Mrs. West) and a whole family of the best-est teachers who will floor you with their dedication towards the students. What better can you ask for as a parent when it comes to the educational well being of our kids? We bought a house in the same neighborhood to be able to stay in the same school and because our kids refused to move out ! Doesn't that say something about the school. I must say that this school is truly special because you name it and this school has it all!!! Keep it up Elsa England team!!!!

Elsa England s an excellent school. The teachers go above and beyond to connect to the children. There are several extra academic programs and opportunities for all ages. The principal is very dedicated and knows each child individually. I couldn't ask for a better school for my daughter!! She is extremely happy with her new school this year so far.

We couldn't be happier . . . this school is top notch! From the administrators, to the teachers, to the student body . . . it is a positive place filled with learning and enthusiasm where decisions are made in the best interests of the children. Our kindergartener and first grader LOVE school, and are happiest when learning and growing alongside their peers, guided by caring teachers who truly enjoy what they do. They are appropriately challenged AND nurtured -- a delicate balance that only excellent teachers can achieve. This school is full of exceptional educators! It doesn't get any better than this!
