My two nephews attend Zavala and I am very pleased with the education that they are receiving. My family has attended Zavala for over 40 years. They are a recognized school now and I since the new principal Mr. Fox has been there I have noticed my nephews succedd in their schoolwork. They are very happy now and are learning a lot since there is a lot less bullying going on. I was not sure if I was going to send my kids there, but now I am sure.

The Zavala faculty treats one another like family. The teachers are very friendly and at most grades work collaboratively with each another. The principal is an advocate for children and treats teachers with respect. The neighborhood is tough and some of the children have consistent behavior problems that are not always met with tough consequences. The parent involvement is on a sharp decline and the school has been so focused on raising TAKS scores that this problem has been put on the back burner. TAKS scores can be very misleading when evaluating schools. Zavala is an acceptable school according to TAKS results, but when you dig a little deeper you will find dedicated and loving teachers that get through to the majority of the children. I think overall Zavala is a very good school.
