Marti had the best programs to put kids first. They do what is best for the kid not necessarily what the track says and the kids do great

The school ISD is awful, security is very poor at this school. Anyone can pick up any child and they are forced to sit outside in the elements. Very disorganized pick up. The principal does nothing to assista parents and 'passes the buck'. Realize the school is newer but no excuse for lack of parent teacher relations. I do not get notification of anything. Children of special education are not treated well at all by the staff. Clear discrimination with that issue.

We have been with this group of teachers four years now. It seems that the majority of them are dedicated professionals. I am, on the other hand extremely dissappointed in the manor that the principle deals with problem teachers. I am very involved with this school and realize that none are perfect.Overall,it does seem that the leaders here are more concearned with their success than they are their students. Most students here would not even be able to identify their own principle here.

I have been disappointed with this school. I think there are alot of problems with team work. The teachers do not seem to support each other and there are instances where the classes are stacked (more children with problems in one particular class). Additionally, there are notification problems - such as parents not recieving information about school happenings, ect. After asking other parents in other classes/grades I discovered this problem is widespread and not local to my child's classroom. Finally, I am unhappy with thier policies concerning child pick up and fear it isn't as secure as it could be.

This school is new, as this is the 2nd year since it's opening. It has been great for my daughter, who started first grade there last year, and now in second grade. She is involved with the Challenge (GT) Program, as well as the Bilingual Program, and she loves it. We, her parents are proud of her progress. The Teachers, the staff, including the office staff have been wonderful to work with in every situation. I would greatly recommend this school to any parent moving to the Cleburne area.
