This school is horrible. They have absolutely no communication with parents. The kids are not disciplined at all. I feel that if the school would send out emails or have a facebook page for each grade or something, it would help better. You have to bug the school to find out what's going on.

Adults bully the kids with intimidating language and aggressive behavior. The kids bully each other based on what is being modeled by the adults. The best interest of the child is at the bottom of their priority list.

no one at this school cares about my child. They only care what grade he gets on the stupid state tests. My child has also been bullied by a few kids and no real action has been taken to stop it.

Since this school year started I have seen about 10 vehicles having to break in the bus area due to kids shooting out of the school.... No teacher is there helping them cross and yet at the entrance of the bus area there is a crossing guard and two, TWO, teachers....... Those kids need someone there so they don't get hurt.... Please think about them...

Racism is tolerated too much in the entire district! By both teachers and some parents. I do not raise my children to judge a person by their skin! My daughter come home upset because the kids won't talk to her because she is white.

My child wemt to Amber Terrace and was in the gifted program and really enjoyed it, but didnt like how the gifted children were usaully seperated from everyone else and looked at as they were uppity because they were smart and the principal one year just didnt understand. But the teachers Mrs. Hien and Mrs Mull really were fantastic

My child was tested and put in the gifted program. (EAGLE) He has received an excellent education his 5th grade year. He has been is several school settings (not in TX) because of parent re-locations and we have been most pleased with Amber Terrace. The teachers care about and love these students, provide many opportunities to learn outside the classroom and highly encourage parent participation in their child's education. I am very impressed with the DeSoto ISD overall.

My children and I have had a tough 2 years at this school. The practice of zero tollerance often leaves children who have special learning needs (ADD/ADHD)with no options but alternative school. These kids are labled at trouble makers and often singled out as 'problems to be eliminated'. School should provide alternative means to teach children with problems retaining directions and staying focused.
