Great teachers that have been there for years. They really love kids and teach them great values along with the basics.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 24, 2010

I am pleased with this school and school district for that matter. I have 3 children in CISD and 2 are on this campus. The teachers are quick to respond to my questions and concerns. They keep me informed on all things concerning my kids. The school also does many activities throughout the year to reward its students for their hard work. I look forward to many happy years in CISD! Leigh Anne - parent
