Logan Elementary- HORRIBLE school. Issues never get resolved. Lazy& unprofessional staff minus a few that actually care about their job& the students. Can never talk to one of the many Principals they've had with in a year& a half. Some teachers don't hand out homework. School is very old& unsafe. Teachers speak horribly to the kids. Communication with teachers in non existent. No one ever calls you back to settle an issue. Most of the time what is on the lunch menu isn't what your children actually eat. The school doesn't offer many extra curricular activities. Whenever you want to speak with your child's teacher it's almost impossible. Constantly changing the rules to where you can& can't park to pick up your child. There's no play ground. Kids play with the sand& old cut up bleach buckets. There's no shade on ridiculously hot days or on extremely cold days. The campus is not secure& they let the youngest of the kids walk alone without an adult. My advice DON'T send your children to this school. I've not seen such a horrible school in all the schools my children or I've attended. It's pretty pathetic. Just stating my experiences& those of others I've spoken with. Good Luck

My autistic son attended Logan for 5 years and thrived under the great teachers and faculty. While the open campus was a concern at first, being located in military housing area it is constantly patroled by military police. The buildings are old, but construction is begining for the new facilities to replace the existing school. The office staff are some of the nicest, most conciderate ladies I have met, even remembering my family after we left the area for two years. I found no difficulties with getting my son the help and assistance he needed for his autism, the staff going so far as to assist me in finding training off campus to help cope his disabilities. I could not ask for a better school.

My son attended Logan last year & everytime I think about how he did there I cry. He is diagnosed autistic, but very high functioning & all of the faculty was unwilling to do anything to help him. I would say if your child needs any extra help in school, avoid Logan.

My childs last school was a DOD school and Logan is lacking in every way compared to it. The security measures are poor and the disiplinary actions are non existant. I think the teachers are over burdened with many children and no assistants in the class. MY son loved his last school and learned so much, at Logan it is strictly by the book hand out learning. I am not impressed and if we had the money he would be in an private school.

As a subsitute teacher I've been at many of the schools in the district. If El Paso is trying to get more military here, this school should be a model of the schools available within the city. The school and its grounds are really showing their age. On the other hand, the students and staff are top notch. The parents seem more involved than they are at other El Paso schools. I think that since most are military they are transfered out before they can effectively change the building or grounds.

My son's first grade teacher was wonderful! I feel the education my son received was excellent. However, I am concerned with how open the school is. Of course they say you have to sign in before going anywhere in the school, but it's not necessary to go to the office to get to any of the classrooms. I really miss the security of the closed building of my son's last school.

I cannot believe that a school located in a military base can be so in a bad shape. If your son is allergic to any food product, you are in the wrong school.

My son is a walk-in speech therapy student twice a week. The speech therapist on campus is AWESOME! When I enrolled my son the office staff was very friendly and got me in and out as quickly as possible. My son absolutely loves his speech days with Mrs.LaBelle. She has worked with my son for two months and I see such great improvement in him that I will switch him from the headstart program he is in this year to Logan next year, if only for the speech therapy. I have been very impressed with this school. Amanda

Two of my children have attended Logan Elementary. The computer clerk (attendance)always greets the children in the morning with cheer and respect. The office staff are friendly and work well together. The Principal knows most of the children by their first name and strives to run the campus with equality and fairness for every child. Whenever I had a concern or question, the Principal would give me thorough answers and his full undivided attention. Logan has many wonderful teachers that guide the students to reach their potential and treat them with respect. Both of my sons had a wonderful Kindergarten teacher that paved their road to learning success as readers and writers. I signed up for VIP volunteering and was able to volunteer any time I wanted. There was a wonderful open campus policy as long as you signed up for VIP. I felt the love on campus.
