Baty has a dedicated staff that truly cares about their students. The school is located in east riverside, very close to downtown, and received a recognized rating from TEA. The school is also in a recognized school district.

My daughter loved this school. We moved here from New Orleans and within a few weeks I could tell a huge difference in her reading and mathematically skills. I have nothing bad to say about Baty Elementary

This school is largely hispanic population and does not seem to excel in scholastic achievements. The parental involvement is very low.Only two parents showed up in the classroom for open house out of 21 students.
