Austin has many teachers with passion! You can tell how much they love their jobs just by seeing the effort they've put into decorating their classrooms.. Last year we had Mrs. Frenzel in 2nd grade at Austin and she was wonderful! She really cared about my sons well being and not just his grades. She's easy to talk to, and the kids adored her because she taught outside of the box and made learning fun. She didn't nitpick the kids about sitting up straight in their chairs as long as they were learning or working. she met with my son twice a day each to day help him individually with math and reading. His DRA score more than tripled during his 2nd grade year! The year before, my student had Mrs. Tribe, and she was great too. She really cared about my son and I could tell she loved him like her own. It's refreshing to find teachers like those I've had at Austin. My daughter is here now as well and I'm already hearing her beg to be put in our favorite teachers' class. Front staff was always nice, but sometimes it's a pain standing in line twice to check out our kids on holiday early checkouts. i tolerate it since its for the safety of the kids. Doors are always locked.

The faculty at this school really communicates very well especially the administration. Some teachers communicate better than others. The administration show they care and I have seen it over the past 4 years my son has attended. They are always available for a phone conference or a sit down whenever I need it. Also, they are very consistent with ensuring I get every detail when something goes wrong with my son. I do trust them and my other children will be attending Austin. Thanks!

Many of the teachers are very rude to the children and parents. The main focus of this school is discipline not education. There is no variety of cafeteria food. One main course or salad and always just fruit for a side. When I was in school we got a main coarse with two sides and a bread.

The criteria is just the basic information to pass the TAKS test. Maybe all the schools are getting this way, but it does not make it right. Teach age-appropriate scholastics and the TAKS should be passed anyway. It just seems to be a lot of focus on bad behavior. I hear the conversations in the office and amongst the teachers (loud enough for students to hear) and it confuses me that they would want to focus so much on the negative. I don't state this because I have a problem child, quite the contrary. I just observe behaviors. The problem children in a few of the classrooms I noticed are outcast. I even found some outcast to the hallway. That teacher should be ashamed. Every child has a right to be educated. If they are a problem, send them to the principle. After eating with my child at the cafeteria, I am embarrassed I fed him school food! They are not served enough variety nor enough food is given in one sitting.

Without a doubt, the physical education department is run like a well oiled machine. Those coaches are two of the best in the entire country.

I love Austin Elementary School Conroe, TX because they have the brightest, nicest students anywhere! The student I have met was very well informed and literate. Austin Elementary is doing a great job of teaching students to think for themselves and not be controlled by peer pressure!

Reading and writing progression is far below that of other schools in the district. Principal shows a lack of interest in issues that parents have brought up as a concern.

Austin Elementary is an exemplary school. It has gained that rating for several reasons. The adminstrative staff cares about the students, parents, and teachers. The school has highly qualified teachers who care about the whole child. This school does not teach to the test. You will rarely hear teachers stating that the students need to know something so they may pass the TAKS tests. Most of the teachers have been at this school for a very long time. The staff turn over is very low.The children feel that are loved and cared about not just about their grades. Each day ever classroom teacher meets the students at their door to say 'Hello' and 'How was you evening last night'. The PTO provides a lot a fun events for the students. Lat year the PTO had the Luna Brothers Circus come. Also, they work hard to raise money to help with school.

Austin is a wonderful school to have your children in. I was a home-schooling parent, not ready to place my child in a public school. Once I toured the school I was amazed at the attention paid to children and parents alike. That was 7 years ago. My daughter attended Austin from K-4th, very involved in the many activities offered. She came out, ready for intermediate, well-prepared and self-confident. Not only did she learn from a great curriculum, but also enjoyed Honor Choir, Destination Imagination, art shows, the Gifted and Talented program, along with inspiring interaction between the students and teachers. I have recommended Austin to many other parents in dance class, on the ball fields, friends in Girl Scouts, and church, and have not heard back from any unhappy parents or children. It is all positive.

Well I have had two children attend this school and have never discovered any issues with the Principal or the teachers. One of my children did require extra halp and recieved it at this school and not at any other. My child learned two years worth of work ot this school where they were falling behind at other schools.They have Many exceptional teachers and are working on a great volunteer system outside the PTO. So I have found this school to be coopertave to my childrens needs and that of there parents.

This is not a good school to have a child in that has learning problems. The teachers they hire are not capable of doing their job to the ability that special needs children need. The principal does not let the parents in on anything and things are done without the parents consent. The children are not treated the way they should be without a fight from the parents. And then there is still no changes made for the better.
