San Jacinto Elementary in Baytown Texas is a great school. My granddaughter loves going and that says a lot about a school. The environment is one of happy faces and Ali reads very well. Ali is going into the second grade and reads at a 3rd grade level in my opinion. Tonight she is going to meet her second grade teacher and I see an excited little girl. Makes my heart happy to see her enjoy school so much! I attribute that to the wonderful staff that teaches and leads the children. The crossing guard Ms. rose (that is not her name but is close) makes sure the children are safe. That is my biggest concern...no safe roads are around the school. There is not any parking so there can be no plays are parent participation because there is not any parking for parents to become a proud participant in the child's development. If there was parking this would be a five star school! Thanks to everyone from the cafeteria and janitors to the teachers and principle Ali is a happy school girl. Thanks to all for everything:)

my son is going to this school and i'm very happy with his teacher but there is a lady who works in the cafeteria is very rude to the children, always is screaming for them to hurry for breakfast and sometimes she take away their lunch and throw away.
