This is a GREAT school! My children have attended Guzick for years and have thrived. The teachers are amazing they always go the extra mile. They really care about their students the extra activities they make available for our children is wonderful it keeps students involved and builds so much character. Thank you teachers & staff you the Davis family appreciates everything you do.

My daughter has been at Frank Guzick since last school year. Coming from RISD to DISD, there is a really big change. I was worried that she would fall behind being that DISD is a low performance district. Since being here she has started to be interested in sports. She played on the basketball team last year and will this year. She also cheerleader this year. The thing that makes the school a lot different for me is the parent participation. There is none. I believe if the parents get more involved We can make the school a better school for those who complain about what they dislike about Frank Guzick. IJS

this is one of the worst elementary schools i've seen in DISD but DISD is one of the lowest performing districts in the state. The teachers, counselors, and principals are all to concerned about pushing a child through the system to avoid any negative marks on the shcool. What happened to REAL teachers and principals that showed interest in the CHILDS future and not their paycheck? i pray that the new superintendent reads what people say about the district so he can whip this district and all it's lazy employees into shape.

My daughter has been at Guzick for 4 years now! She loves her school! First I want to say is I am a little disappointed to read the other reviews. I noticed some of them are older from 2007, 2008 etc. I have had nothing but positive results from the full-time staff and administration. I think we as parents have to take an active interest in our childrens education. We can not expect the teachers to do ALL of the teaching for OUR children. I feel the children are always put FIRST. There is always extra concern for their safety. The School District needs to do more for our teachers. The reference to more for hispanics is no longer an issue! There should be more Hispanics participate in the PTO organization! All communication produced at the school goes out in English and Spanish! So there no lack of information! Parental involvement from ALL needs to improve to show our children they matter! I challenge any one with a negative review to tell the complete story of their part in the interaction at Frank Guzick! Meet me at the monthly PTO meeting!

My son just started going to Guzick this year since we moved back from Denton. He is already complaining that the school is boring. I feel he is not being challenged enough. In Denton he always came home telling me about his day and all the activities they have done. Meet the teacher night over there is the day before school starts and from the time he was in kindergarten to second, the teachers had assigned their desks with their names on them and had a bag with lil goodies to take home. Also they had us take the school supplies that night so they can sort them in piles and have everything ready. Why cant DISD do that? When I first walked in there, the halls were bare. No pictures no nothing. In Denton, everything was decorated. My son will return to that district next year.

I have had a bitter sweet experience with Guzick since it opened their doors in 2006. I have 2 children who attend and I am not please in the slightest with their decline in progress. As parents, we feel there is not enough focus on the creative development of our children to empower their minds to grow beyond the 'box'. DISD has failed our children miserably. The politics involved have been destructive and have ultimately affected the school's overall standard and performance. It is most unfortunate that my husband and I are heavily vexed by our experience and are now forced to make some very difficult and radical decisions with regard to our childrens' education. It is truly frightening...

I like the work of the teachers with the students but I would like to see more communication with the hispanic community.

This school could be better if the parents were more involved with their children. The children are learning from their first teacher and the behavior is very bad. Their second teacher must try to teach them manners etc. as well as academics. It makes it difficult. The parents are abusive, therefore the children exhibit abusive behaviors toward their classmates and teachers. The school is trying several methods to curb the student behavior. It is still in a building stage so I will not be so harsh as to judge it without taking into consideration the problems that are no fault of the administration or the teachers.

As a whole the school is good. The staff provides a secure environment for the children. The principal is very personable. The teachers are very nice and helpful. The teachers are very concerned with the children's welfare.

I had a horrible experience at Guzick! Although the teachers were kind and very qualified; it seemed that they didn't have enough staff support to be successful. I spoke with my child's teachers regularly throughout the year, but each time the principal became involved, the situation went downhill fast. The principal never bothered to get the facts from the parents or teachers and it seemed her first instinct was to attack the teachers without reason. The students were out of control because the principal was consistently inconsistent in her discipline policies. To anyone who has other options: Don't send your child to Frank Guzick!
