John J Pershing Elementary School 5

Pershing has a new principal. She is starting her third year. She has made an amazing improvement in the school. Both the staff and the parents respect her very much. The environment is always positive and the kids are excelling both in grades and in outside activities. You could not pay for a better education.

I've had one child or the other at Pershing for 11 years and am looking forward to our last year there with our fifth grader. We love Pershing and have never regretted our decision to forego a private school education in favor of our terrific neighborhood public schools.

The after school program is fabulous. I think there are way to many worksheets and teaching to the Taks but you can hardly fault the teachers for that.

Great school. Very happy with the administration and teaching staff. TAKS scores have a ways to go, but school is definitely working toward progress. I am pleased to be a member of this staff.

Anyone who passes up the chance to consider Pershing is missing an incredible experience. Pershing (which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year) is a safe, happy, and academically challenging school. Some of the teachers have been at Pershing for over 30 years, and the Principal, Larry Hines, is an enthusiastic, well-regarded leader. My children enjoy the Talented and Gifted Program, chess club, art club, concert choir, as well as their academic subjects. We feel extraordinarily lucky that Pershing is our neighborhood school.

This school was excellent. We moved to Texas from Louisiana and this school was far better. The teacher and school staff was so supportive

How sad that this school has gone so far downhill! There is a steady stream of memos going out about everything from safety to how to correctly post grades.

As a teacher, I have been nothing but happy with the current administration. Pershing is fortunate to have such incredible leaders, and all the staff love and care for these children. A strong PTA helps, too. Pershing is a great place to send your children, and a great place to work.
