GES a great school, because you care about their students, looking for ways to learn in a more creative, so that everyone learns the same way, to develop all their skills and potential.

Garcia is filled with excited learners. Students have really taken ownership of their learning through the dedication of their teachers. Teachers and parents have teamed up to serve the students with the best academic challenges. Garcia Elementary has incorporated many different facets of learning such as college destination, art classes, top notch band and choir programs and UIL. Our desire to develop life long learners.

Focus of the school is on college readiness as exemplified in the Destination College program. Each grade level has adopted a different college/university as its mascot. Students learn about the college/university through the year and about what it means to be prepared to go to college. This program was developed under the current Principal.

This is a TEA recognized school, which is awesome considering the school is only about 3 years old. The staff is always courteous and hard-working. There is a lot of transition in the district right now as far as top-management, and the recent tax rate election did not pass, but these challenges have in no way affected the quality of education that the students receive and that's what's most important.

Garcia was a great school for my kids. They are both honor roll students and are offered many academic opportunities. They are challenged by their work and love their teachers. As a student I highly recommend this school.

Taking in to account that the school has been operating for less than a year; I believe that we have a great institution that is mainly focuse on education our kids. All extracurricular activities will come along with the parents help and support. I do Thank you for the effort.

As the previous person mention; our priority shall be education and dicipline at this point in their lives. The fun games and extracurricular activities can be provided at home while the school gains more support from parents and state.

I feel this is the worst school and school district that I have ever seen. I came from California and even worked for LAUSD. They had better education systems in place in California than they do here. The children are taught only to get good scores on the TAKS test, not at the actual level they should be taught at. The levels of education being taught here are inferior to other locations. The staff doesn't discipline the children correctly. Many of the children 'cuss' and are out of control. This is not even a safe place to send your children. It is also ridiculous to spend our tax money on P.E. teachers in an elementary school. I want my tax money spent on actual education-education that will help my children in the future. After all, our children's education directly affects our future and the future of the world.

Very disappointed that my daughter in grade 3 has nothing to play with during lunch. Smaller playgrounds are very unsafe due to the amount of children using them at the same time. Lunches are set up so children can make no choices but are told where to sit and how load they can talk. No parent involvement is welcomed. They would rather turn you away. Like the mother said below the teacher do teach our children well. Next school think about investing in playground equipment rather than so many cork boards that are not being used.

Parents are not welcomed into this school like we are in other schools. Principle seems like she wants no parent involvement. Lunch is eaten military style where children are told where to sit and when to go outside. Every child must face the stage and not one another. Teachers do a great job teaching.

this is the best school my son has attended. the staff is excellent and are always friendly and willing to lend a hand with students. i am pleased with the programs they have to offer. i am pleased that they work with the children that have behavior problems, most schools would just turn their backs on those children. here, children are given a chance and are taught that they are important and can be anything they set their mind to. big thanks to the principal, assistant principal, the teachers and the entire staff. keep up the awesome work!!
