My daughter has already attended 4 elementary schools in 3 different states (and she is only in 4th grade). She was at Lakeway Elementary for 2nd grade. I can honestly say that this is the school that I use as a benchmark for ranking all other schools. The teachers and staff were great, the level of parent involvement was amazing, and the children were well-manner and well-behaved, in addition to being very welcoming my daughter. If I had my choice, we would move back to TX & have her go back to Lakeway Elementary!!!
everything is awesome...great programs for the students, good teacher parent interaction, happy students, lots of community involvement- it is truly a great place to be
This state really knows what its doing with education. Thank you for keeping all the things that make school fun and educational! My children were greeted with open arms and my 3rd grader loves reading now. We have only been here 3 weeks I can't wait to see how they do next year.
This is a great school with lots of parent involvement. The academic programs are strong although they no longer offer Spanish. There are many wonderful teachers that have been in the district for many years. Overall, an excellent school.
The parents are incredibly involved, but I have not been impressed with the curriculum, nor choices for reading, rainy day recess, lunch menus, or their ability to challenge gifted children. We homeschooled for K&1st, and had our child reading at a 6th grade level the april before she began 2nd grade. We have not decided where our child will be schooled this fall. They use the cogat as an IQ test, not as the screening test for which it was intended, so we had to pay out of our pocket to get an accurate independent IQ test for our child to prove she should be in their TAG program. As we understand it, they base entry into the program solely on IQ, not including any evidence of academic performance.
I have never seen a better elementary school in my life. The teachers are all dedicated to the school and their students. The parents are extremly involved every day. The standards are extremly high for each student but the school strives to make sure that no students are struggling.
