Best School my child has ever enrolled in! Staff is really accomodating and nice. Thank You
I am currently a student in this school, 10th grade. I was also a 9th grader last year. I spent most of my life in a private school, though for a few months I was at a public school. Pegasus sounded great, and at first it was. But slowly over time, even I started to realize I had better organizational skills then this facility. There are good teachers, but many seem to have not only little enthusiasm for teaching, but also act immaturely towards us in a situation. They're supposed to show us how to act, not get to insulting us on our level. And passing the TAKs does NOT mean your learning in a school. Our classes are pretty much build not to teach the requires grade subject, but rather, how to pass the TAKs we must take that year. We're pretty much in school for months, learning how to take a test. We can't take core classes for dual-credit. Why? Because the classes at the college might not be teaching you what you need to know to pass the TAKs. And lastly, while I understand the appearance of the school is important through uniforms, giving demerits for uniforms and holding students in ISS while we don't even have an actual schedule is just insane. Learn to prioritize.
My Son has been at this school for going on 3 years now and I hope it is better than last year. He will be moving up to the upper school this year but that was a little crazy for my niece last year. They had all the children in one class room for the whole day with the teachers coming to the classes. The lower school was ok and they did start serving luch (even though my son said it was nothing to be happy over). The parents this pass year were more of a problem than the student!! Why show up to your childs program if you are going to fight in the hall!! Get it together people and show our children how adults are supposed to conduct themselves!!! Dont blame the school when you are not there for your child blame yourself!! This school could use more good parents!! The teachers do a good job of keeping you informed its up to you to use what they give you. As paerent our children are with their teachers more than they are home with us. So lets pull together and make this year better than anyother!!! This school could be GREAT!!! (with a little help from it's PARENTS!!!!
Great school, if they were more organization in there front office staffing and had more parent participation. Which is none. And some teachers need interpersonal skills to deal with parents and students, they need more disciple when they have students that are repeat offenders, or removed altogether... they need one principal and one vice principal and more counselors. My child makes 'A' and 'B's and passed her TAKS. But this school NEEDs direction. They offer college courses at the High School Campus. This school has the makings of a top school if they tried harder.
My daughter has been attending the school in 7th,8th and 9th grade and I have had no problems. Far better than a public school
My daughter has attended Pegasus since 7th grade. She is now finishing her freshmen year. This school has the potential to be one of the best schools in Dallas, but it lacks direction. Who is head of this school? There are too many associate, and assistiant principals. No guidance councelors. No college prep courses. No parental involvement. Not enough 'after' school activities. I feel the things they are very strict about, and focusing on should be moved to the back burner. There are too many other issues that are far more important. Parking is horrible if you transport your child to and from school. I personally feel that the teachers are not the best they could be. With the school being as small as it is, they could have more individualized help for the students that need it. There are a lot of undisciplined children running around with no supervision.
This school lacks a lot of necessities, such as a school lunches. All students must bring in their lunch. Teachers are too busy with other matters to assist with tutoring the students.
This school is fantastic!!! I am a graduate of Pegasus and not only did the school provide me with a challenging top of the line education, the school provided me with many great leadership opportunities. This helped prepare me for one of the top colleges in Texas.
Parents please be cautious when sending your child to school. I don't know how we managed to survive this past year. It was truly a nightmare. Do your research before considering this school. As the other reviewer said, they do tell you how good it is but when in school, its nothing but disappointment.
I am truly pleased with this school. It continues to grow from the looks of their TAKS scores. They are willing to really help their students succeed and they truly challenge their students.
I think this is a really great school for my children. I have a 4th and 5th grader at Pegasus. Before my kids attended Pegasus, they didn't pass all of their TAKS. This year my kids passed all parts of the TAKS. That should say a great deal about this school. My kids are so excited to be here, and they have become more studious! The after school program is really awesome for the one on one tutoring and it doesn't cost a thing!
I feel that this school offers little to none in the area of parental involvement. They have a great sale for the school and once in, it's been nothing but discouraging. I try to understand how 100% can pass the TAKS, but not pass math.
I love this school. Two of my kids attent pegasus and they love it. Classes are excellent. I love the fact that the school sents the portal( the weekly school newspaper) and i can read what my kids are learning every week. I also like that the students keep track of their own work in a student agenda. In general I love it. I have no complains. Best academic quiality, best uniform, great location, and best teachers
Outstanding school! My questions and concerns were always addressed immediately. My children love going to school and they look forward to the after school activities that the school provides for free. My kids get to experience all that downtown has to offer including the Arts District and Fair Park Museums. The kids have homework frequently, but they did so well on their TAKS test this year they know it was worth all the work. I am confident that at Pegasus my children are getting all the attention and support they need to be successful.
Academic programs could be intensified. Level is still not up to par. This institution has the capability of becoming one of the best Charter schools in Dallas, however the focus is still not being met. It is full of talented students but lacks direction, in my opinion. More parental involvement is needed. Focus should be placed on overall excellence. Teachers, on a whole are dedicated. Emphasis should be placed on accquiring 'educators' not individuals who just want a job. Mentoring program is needed.
Overall, Pegasus is a very poor learning environment. My children were better off at public schools in Oak Cliff. I was told that they did not accept students with disciplinary problems but it's obvious that they accept anyone.
This charter school is like other charter schools, poor! It is a diploma mill and the students do not acquire any real learning.
A little sparse in setting, the small yet enthusiastic staff and teachers make up for it. A gem in downtown Dallas
Average academic programs, music and arts available but limited sports. Little or no parent involvement. School doesn't seem to want input from parents.
