I had twins that attended this school and they had wonderful years there. They seemed to learn more in their Pre-K and 1st grades years. Their teachers incorporated fun in the learning process. I was not particularly fond of the learning process in the first grade but they did learn the fundamentals needed to progress.

This school has a wonderful program, but like any other parents have to be involved with their child. There are wonderful teachers at this school, classes are small, and there is awesome school spirit.

I have 2 children in this school and I was concerned when I saw the TAAS scores for the year 2001-2002. My child had a very good kindergarden teacher last year, however, the 1st grade teacher that she has this year does not seem to be as enthusiastic about her students. I am very concerned that the parents of these students don't seem as interested in the quality of their child's education as they should be.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.
  • In 2010-2011, this school was rated "Recognized".
  • In 2009-2010, this school was rated "Exemplary".
  • In 2008-2009, this school was rated "Recognized".

About the tests

Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
