I love Pillow Elementary because they really do care about the students and helping them get a quality education. They are committed first and foremost to the students and then the parents. You really do feel as a parent that your child's educational needs are being met. Thank you, Principal King and Pillow Staff for doing a excellent job.
I love the diversity of Pillow Elementary. I look at the school and I see my city, my country, my world, all represented in the beautiful children who attend Pillow. Character, values, nutrition, health, responsibility and respect are valued highly at Pillow. The staff are wonderful and devoted and Principal King is an excellent principal and role model. I'm so grateful my child has the opportunity to attend such a wonderful school in our city.
I love the diversity of our school. I feel that the diversity alone teachers our children the importance of all people and cultures and brings an awareness that should be experienced!
Pillow is an amazing school. The staff are supportive, knowledgeable and responsive to students and parents alike. The principal, Ms. King, goes above and beyond to make sure that student needs are met and has done an excellent job leading her teachers and staff, working with them to create a safe, fun, and comfortable learning environment.

I love Pillow because they really care about the kids. All of the teachers know our kids are genuine. Both of our children are proud to be Pillow Panthers!
We put our kids first, and believe that every child can succeed. Our dedicated teachers give all of themselves to their students, and I feel fortunate to be a part of the family.
Pillow truly believes that all students can learn regardless of their language, background, financial staus, etc. Our faculty, staff, students and parents are a family that supports one another in any way needed. Our test scores defy the odds when you look at the population we serve. It is an honor to teach here!!
The teacher is respected as an competent educator and given the right to accommodate childrens' needs in their academic life. We are the village.
It is a family oriented and everyone is friendly and always in a happy mood to see our children.
I love Pillow because it is one of the most diversified schools in our district with over 30 languages spoken here. I love our faculty and I love our kids!!!
Pillow is like a minature United Nations with students from across the globe. Our families bring gifts of varying ethnicities, languages, backgrounds, and experiences to share with one another. The Pillow learning community treasures this rich diversity and works as a team in supporting each child's growth toward success and achievement. With excellent teachers, caring parents, and dedicated volunteers, we strive daily to bring our campus motto to life: 'Pillow is the best school a kid could ever have!'
The staff, parents and students are a family with everyone working together for the child.
Pillow Elementary is a great school. It has high expectations for kids, no matter what their socio-economic background might be, and the kids prove over and over that they can meet or exceed those expectations. Pillow's family atmosphere builds a strong foundation for these kids and gives them the self worth necessary to go out and succeed in their lives beyond Pillow.
Pillow is a predominately low income school, but has proven to the city of Austin and Central Texas that we can perform with the best. The campus was named Exemplary by the TEA, has been placed on the Texas Business and Education Coalition's Honor Roll, and most recently was named by the non-profit, nonpartisan 'Children at Risk' as the best elementary school in Central Texas. But what really makes Pillow so special is its sense of family. Each day is begun with a morning assembly; a family meeting, so to speak. We look out for one another and have high expectations for our students, faculty, and parents.
Pillow Elementary is the number one school in Central Texas according to the State of Texas. Their test scores are the highest. And the demographics of this school are heavily weighted towards low income/ spanish speaking children. The administrators and teachers of this school have been working very hard to reach a goal like this and we are all very proud of them.
