Terrible school! If your not a mainstream name around here your nothing to these people. The teachers allow bullying unless a less well known kid is the bully. The teachers push adhd medication on parents so they don't have to do their job. It's a horrible place. Please don't subject your kids to this place. We moved to New caney isd and love it!!

Tarkington Primary is a wonderful school. The teachers work great with children and reach out as far as they can to help a child. The staff at this school is super. Everyone at this school will go to the max to make sure that the children at Tarkington are succesful, understand and can accomplish there goals.

If your child is mainstream this would be an adequate school, however, if your child has any special needs they are not inclined to take the time (or money) to investigate or evaluate your child to accomodate those needs. My child will be going to another district next year. Tarkington Elementary rated a 5 on a 1 - 10 rating scale, the new elementary rated a 9 under the great school rating system. No, Tarkington is not a great school, at best it is average and that only for mainsraem kids.

I think that they do not have enough after school activities for the younger children. If you want them to play you have to send them to Shepard, New Caney, or even Conroe. I am a working mother and can't seem to pull this off when it takes an hour to get home (we all live in the sticks here. Parents need to be able to be more envolved to get these ciriculums together.

Tarkington Primary is a wonderful school. My daughter started this year, and has learned so much! The teachers take the time for each individual student, and really care about the needs of the child--whether it be physical or emotional.

We love Tarkington Primary School. My daughter had attended for three years and has had no trouble. The teachers go above and beyond what is expected.

I have never sent my kids to a school that they enjoyed as much as they do Tarkington Primary. The school always makes sure the parents are involved. I really like that. They are strict on disipline. Which I think now days they need to be. They have a no bullying policy that works very good. The teachers are willing to do what it takes for the kids to learn. I just can't imagine sending my kids anywhere else.
