Very impressed by quality of teachers & staff here. They care very much for their students, and are committed to their success.

This is school is a zoo! The kids are out of control and under supervised!! This district is as dirty as any other in town by keeping all their money in their more effluent neighboring schools. This school needs so much help there are so amazing teachers but they are few and far between! Shame on you Lake Travis ISD!

Hate this school! My husband didn't like public school and I fought for my daughter to go because I loved it as a child. This school is cold and uninviting. Believe me when I say your kid is nothing but a number. When my daughter started having a hard time I got tossed around like a Ping pong ball. No one was willing to step up. Then when I put in a transfer request and talked to the admin in charge of that and told him that I was willing to try anything, but how it was handled made a difference on us moving or homeschooling, because I was not willing to jeopardize my daughter's psychological health for their numbers and he said ok. I am in school to be an educator and this school had better believe they have not heard the last of me. If you actually care about where your child goes and you have an option. Do NOT send them here!

New Principal Karen Miller-Kopp has raised enthusiasm and responsiveness significantly and could take this school great places. It is a safe, friendly, supportive school.

My daughter attended kindergarten at Lake Travis Elementary. We absolutely love Mrs. Seidenberger. She was the most fantastic kindergarten teacher and we couldn't have asked for more.

There are some serious classroom management issues at the school and picking up children from school is a very time consuming task. The traffic backs up to the highway. There was a playground incidence that I tried to contact the teacher about. It has been almost a week since it occurred and I am still waiting to talk with the teacher.

The school is not organized and some parents are frustrated because the ones who are actively helping the school don't get the support they need to help out. I have personally experienced having an issue that I tried to get the principal involved in and she didn't respond. I am considering a move if there is not a change in administration.

School needs to be more organize and well prepare their students in UIL program. Lake Point has the very effective and motivate reading program which I feel Lake Travis Elm should bench mark. Principal needs to share her vision and continue improve the school. Lastly, the Imaginary program also need to be more organize and well communicate. Lake Point has a great principal leadership skill who connect parents and students with school closely which should be bench mark.

Wonderful! So impressed that we moved to the area...from Beaumont to Austin. The difference in the school systems is incredible!
