When we first moved to this area, this school was very good. It had a great mix of socioeconomic levels and demographics. Unfortunately, just before our daughter started Kindergarten, CFISD redistricted the 'high dollar' and gated communities across the street to a new school up Fry Road and added more depressed communities to Andre. This resulted in a drastic increase in ESL and disadvantaged students. I have to give credit to the staff for their efforts, however, because the student body changed so drastically, the Horizons students have suffered the consequences. They are now relegated primarily to tutoring low-performing students instead of enjoying more challenging work. This means that they are bored and tend to get lots of notes home about stuff bored kids do, as well as Think Path (Seriously? Kid is bored and antsy and you take away their only free play? How does this make sense??) and other disciplinary measures (unless you are fortunate enough to have a GT teacher who actually understands GT kids). Due to the insane focus on test scores combined with a student body that requires a lot of remediation, I have to say that this school is not what it used to be.

If I could give 0 stars, I would. My children are great students, and they used to enjoy school everyday. However, after locating to this school district and being assigned to Andre Elementary, their love for school has suffered immensely. Extremely rude staff, highly rigid rules and exaggerated stress put on students for tests has stripped my children of their love for academics, and they now dread going to school everyday. "Private Dining" (aka: eating alone) and "Think Path" (aka: walking during recess alone in the hot Texas sun) is overused. Frankly, I would liken this school to a correctional facility. It absolutely breaks my heart. I would like to add that we have tried to fix the situation(s), however, our pleas fall on deaf ears of the staff of Andre Elementary. If you care about your child's deep love for education and caring staff, I strongly urge you to check out this school several times, and talk with parents who send their children there. There will be much work ahead of me to re-instill the love of learning for my disheartened children.

My son has attended Andre for three years and has improved significantly with both reading and math curriculum's that the school offers. He enjoys going to school and his teachers are passionate and dedicated professionals who care about their students! Kudos to Ms. Kile, Ms. Herndon, and Ms. Gonzales who have moved my son to the next level in social and academic skills.

I love the school atmosphere at Andre' Elementary. It is a wonderful place to work and the children are awesome. It is very well organized and very focused on academics as well as producing productive members of society for the future. Social skills and behavior skills are taught regularly to ensure that the students are the best they can be.

My family and I were new to the cypress, tx area, however I was assured the school district provided high quality education for its students. And I have to say that I more than agree. Besides my sons awesome kindergarten teacher what stood out the most is the level of safety the schools ensure for all of its students. I had never seen anything like it before. While my child attending a high rated school in hisd, it does'nt compare to andre elementary. They academic programs are great. A mom who loves andre elementary!
