The teachers are unresponsive to emails and are hard to communicate with due to the number of students at this school. The halls are overcrowded and wild in between classes. And the little I contact I did have with the principal and assistant principle were not very receptive. Needless to say I withdrew my daughter as soon as I could.
I have gone to this school for two years now and it is really not that bad. This year our TAKS score were apparently good. I got commended on all three of my test except science. I admit that we don't have the best teachers. Apparently they are teaching me something if I got commended. Mr. Balentine is one of the best teachers there. He keeps the parents informed ,and my mom loves that! You don't get much teachers like that. Mrs. Maddox is also great and I don't even have her. She also teaches History like Mr. Balentine. I just wish more teachers at my school were like them.
The principal does not seem to respond to attempts to contact him; this is true of several of the teachers as well. Ms. Maddox, the History Teacher, is excellent and has almost made up for the poor overall educational experience my son has received at this school.
This school is horrible. The students are disrespectful and the teachers just turn the other way. Don't send your child to this 'school'.
Very eclectic mix of inner-city, rural and exclusive suburb kids. Great access to sports and extracurriculars. Double promotion available while staying with same age peers.
My daughter attended this school for two years. Too many students..too little attention from teachers...
