I just started working at this school and I have to say the staff is amazing. The principal, Erin Deel, is the best I have worked with. The students are respectful and hardworking. It is the best.

This is a great school that demands children/parents take responsibility for their education. Homework is given and graded. My daughter did well there. She has moved on to high school and has what she needs to successfully complete AP work.

Well, both of my children have attended school there and I had heard not so great things. But in our experience it was great, their principal was great and she handle things in a fair and timely manner. She was fantastic and the teachers for the most part seemed to like being there for the students. My children had Mrs. Winters and Mrs. Parker and there were no issues, they were very professional when we spoke with them. Every situation is different though, our experience was as good to be expected. :-)

Well, the principle is awesome. This is her first year there & I am overly impressed by her sincerity & her expediency in handling any & all situations. She is fair. She gets all sides of a story and then handles it diplomatically. I have a problem with the math teacher, Ms. Parker. It seems that she is texting and on her computer through the ENTIRE class. My daughter is hesitant to ask questions due to the teachers constant wavering moods. My second gripe is Ms. Winters. She is tacky with the students. I have gone to the principle on numerous occasions to discuss this teacher. My husband spoke with the teacher & I had a conference with her as well. I can assure you that Ms. Winters was sugary sweet with me, but my daughter continues to have problems with her. Ms. Winters made it perfectly clear that she is not there to be the child's friend...just the teacher. While I don't expect them to be BFFs I do expect her to dish out to my daughter the same respect that she wants for herself. I would move her out of her class, but the band schedule won't allow for it. Overall, don't let a few bad teachers ruin the wonderful school.

My child attends Azle elementary and some of their polices seem to be good , others do not . I think the over use of homework is a bit too much. I weighed my childs backpack one day and it weighed 16.5 Lbs. If that is not enough these children have to carry a great amount of books around all day long weighing almost as much. My child this year has expressed a great amount of fear to go to school ,because of the disipline polices are way over kill. There seems to be no enjoyment for my child attending school this year making it a very hard year for the child and our family.

Both of my children attended azle elementary and i'm happy to say that they benefitted greatly from the time spent there. The entire staff, from the principal to the cafeteria workers are involved with the students and their well being while attending a.E., Or better known as the rock school. Everyone has a hand in helping the students achieve both academically and socially. The students are expected to conduct themselves in a respectful and well-behaved manner. If they break rules they are taught to take responsibility for their own actions. They are also rewarded for good behavior in many ways, and are always conplimented for a job well done. Visitors to the rock school always remark about how polite and well-behaved the students are. This has been accomplished by the staff and students working together, and living up to the motto of azle elementary--'we are the best, and getting better!!'

Our son attended Azle Elementary. We did not agree with the over use of 'signatures' that were handed out to nearly all of the children here. Everytime a student 'gets in trouble' or gets 'caught' doing something they shouldn't, they are given a 'signature'. This can be a successfull way of maintaininig discipline, however, several parents are irritated over the excessive pettiness in these. Several students were given signatures for not lining up fast enough for parent pickup, talking in the hallway, shuffling their feet across the rocks outside, etc. After a certain number of signatures, a letter is sent home and then if more occur, a conference is scheduled between the student and the assistant vice principal. At no time does the staff, nor the principal contact the parents directly. The staff at this school are extremely hard to contact and schedule a parent/teacher/principal conference. Poor quality school and district!
