Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
I'm not so sure about that. It seems there is bullying here sometimes.

Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
I don't know the answer to this question.


Effective school leaders: Neutral


- a
To some extent yes. They seem to be able to make positive changes when they need to for the logistics of the school like drop off & pick up and visitor safety.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
To some degree. They instill respect because they mostly focus on discipline. Strong character, I'm not so sure. Empathy, no.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Most of them aren't. A few of them are. They are so focused on discipline that they don't focus on academics that much. A few are great! Most have attitudes and are below average.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
There needs to be more homework. The better schools have more homework.

This is not a great school. It's a good school compared to the other Denton elementary schools though. The principal is very involved which is good and the PTA is active which is good. They seem to have the drop off and pick up and security issues under control now which is great! We get more homework now which is good because before there was nothing. There is sometimes a lack of joy in teaching with many of the teachers or such an attitude from some of the teachers that it's a total turn off for a learning environment. Of course there are some stand out teachers that give their all. Discipline is extremely high here. Sometimes that's good and sometimes it's overwhelming. It helps keep the classrooms free of a lot of malarkey, but I've seen and heard of some kids being disciplined to the point of where it sounds like they are getting bullied by teachers and staff. It can mean the more popular kids can get away with stuff and other kids are disciplined for breathing wrong. I think it is focused on too much and academics and a safe emotional environment need more focus. Overall, this is an average school and an above average school for Denton elementary schools. Not terrible, pretty good, but not great.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
all they care about is everyone is your friend and optimisim,grit , and kindness but it doesnt controll the students like they want it to.That is why little kids run around.Also does exercise as corporeal punishment as of 2016 and will continue.




- a
my child was advanced and when he got to 5th grade the teachers thought him thing he knew.



- a
Security expecially the pickup process is very poor! Principal needs to get a handle on this situation. Little ones running around without and checks & balances of who is really picking up who???
