I LOVE this school. Ms. Pointer is the best. And the teacher are always so helpful. If you have a problem they always try there best to fix it.
My child started assisting Aikin this school year. He did not attend Pre-K and I thought it would be very had for him to get adjusted to Kindergarten. Since school started in late August he has improved so much. The teachers are very friendly. I see a lot of parent involvement.
Aikin, quite frankly, is an amazing place. It is not situated in the best of locations. It does not have all the "bells and whistles" of other Richardson schools. "Bells and whistles" are not missed by the students at Aikin. That, in it's entirety, is a result of the teachers and staff of Aikin. They care. Plain and simple. They provide. Daily. The students at Aikin do not know that their school is any different from any other. I am a teacher that left Aikin to teach at the school where my children attend. I miss it every day. I miss the kids. I miss the staff. I miss, most of all, the dedication and tenacity of the community that is Aikin. They deserve accolades, support, and everything else that we can offer. Sincerely and graciously, Chelsea Snell
Is the best school they help my son they provide the help that he needs and the teachers are the best......
Akin Elementary. My son has attended this school from 2nd grade through 5th grade and I can say they are the best years of his life. All the teachers are outstanding and the curriculum is engaging. Aikin supports an 'out of the box' thinking style and the teachers altered their teaching methods to fit the classes' needs. I felt that Aikin has helped him grow and become a stronger individual. I also believe that the faculty sets each and every student up for a successful life.
This is a wonderful school.The teachers go far out and beyond for the kids, they make these kids feel loved and cared for no matter race,gender or sex. I relocated from Hurricane Katrina and I have never seen a staff like this my only reason for taking my kids out of this school is because I'm moving to Garland and I don't want to go through the changes of getting residence affidavits.
My son has gone here from K-2nd. Kindergarten was great, first grade seemed to be a repeat of K and so far 2nd is great. I guess it depends on the teacher.
My daughter was a student hear from K5-5th grade I must say that the teachers are very concern and believe in helping the children to be able to succeed. I have recently moved to garland and really miss this school alot because the teachers in that school only care about numbers.
Fabulous! I highly recommend this school for any parent with a child who struggles in school. Thanks to Aiken my child is an honor student which once seemed an impossible feat. Aiken teachers are in constant contact with parents and provide excellent tutoring for children who need extra help. Thank you Ms. Sebastian and all staff at Aiken for an awesome environment for children to learn and grow!
I do not like this school at all. The staff, teachers, and other parenets are very uncaring and seem tired of dealing with the kids.
Our family moved here last year from Indiana. We were supposed to enroll our son at Forest Lane Academy, however due to overflow, he had to attend Aikin, which is considerably further from where we live. He was withdrawn and upset about the move, however during the course of the year ( 3rd grade) he began to turn over a new leaf. His behavior improved and his attitude about school was wonderful. I contribute that the wonderful staff at Aikin Elementary, their willingness to help him adjust. From the counselor,teachers, and the principal, there are simply not enough words to express how glad I am that my son is a student at Aikin. I know he is getting the best possible education from a group of caring individuals who care about him and the level of education that he is receiving. Thank you all so much...(you know who you are!)
