Wonderful principal, teachers, friendly students, provide each student with help as needed.

Unbelivable! What Bill Faircloth and Andy Gill have done over the past two year is simply amazing! The school has been under construction and during this time has acheived a rating of 'Recognized' by the State of Texas. That is an incredible task in itself let alone. Look at other schools their size and in the entire State of Texas there are only two 12 other schools that have acheived this rating and those schools are an average of 72.3% greater in socioeconomically make up. The teachers and administration should be commended...over and over!
