I would like to point out something! All the FIVE and FOUR star ratings are from when SEE had a different staff! The new Staff TEACHER, PRINCIPLES, are a big issue now!

My kids school is South Euless Elementary. I am sad to say that although we still have some fantastic teachers who show us heart, support, and education - the "excitment feel" is no longer in the school. That comes from the school leadership position. There is no comraderie or team feel any longer. Sad - because this school has had it in the past in bucket fulls. Hats off to the teachers.

We removed our son from this school 2 years ago when we discovered that he didn't grasp the concept of simple addition. We discovered that their idea of teaching math was to draw a picture and tell how you *felt* about your answer. In a meeting with the principal we learned that he considered the school a success because ONLY 68% of his students were in tutoring. He also told me they didn't have enough time to teach the students everything. I found that humorous because the school day is the same length as it was 35 years ago when I was in 2nd grade. Since removing our son from this school he now writes in cursive, has been to math olympics, competed in the regional spelling bee, and completed a 6 week long project (history of texas) just to get the long list started. Sending your child to this school is borderline abuse and you are doing them absolutely no favors. We absolutely think private school is the best way to go but short of that I beg you, please do not send your kids here.

South Euless is an amazing, unusual place. I selected this school for my sons because of the excellent curriculum and loving environment. I have never seen a school where the teachers work so hard to ensure that every student's needs are met. This is a very diverse campus and all of the students/families are extremely respectful of one another. One thing I really liked about this campus was their emphasis placed not only on academics, but also on building exceptional character. If you want to transfer to this school, be prepared because this school is often "full" because so many children are on waiting lists trying to get i! You will love the teachers,,, and they will love your children!

This is by far the best school my children have attended. We moved here from Arlington and even the best school in Arlington isn't as great as South Euless. I love the structure, the anti-bullying methods that teachers use and for the first time ever, my son who is now in 5th grade has scored near perfect on his TAKS exams. I am a Dr. and my husband is an IT Specialist, so education is something we take seriously. I recommend this school, however, there are a few things that I've had concerns with, but my husband and I addressed our concerns. The main thing being assigned seating during lunch time. Students are not allowed to sit with their friends during lunch or their siblings during breakfast, which is upsetting. In addition, they expect students to clean the lunch rooms and wash the tables for them and that is not a child's job! They pay cafeteria personnel for this and should expect them to do their job. Overall, I do like this school academically.

This is an awesome school with a great curriculum for student. They really challenge students to learn but this is done in a interesting approach to keep the students' attention. My boys and I moved here last summer and this was their first school in Tx. The staff and students were so welcoming to my children. I've never met staff so caring about my boys education. Even when my one son was rebellious to the move, they really helped and showed me they were about his education first. I love this school and I really pray I'm able to find a middle school as great as South Euless.

Very low parent involvement, under-qualified teachers, and very poor leadership. If school was so "great" as others want you to assume then it should be noted as a "National Blue Ribbon" school. Where's that rating if academics is so supurb? Curriculum is very low and that says alot. If you want your child to be great and not okay I suggest another school. Check out the feeder to this school, Euless Junior High and that should say alot.

I am a long time parent at South Euless. I am proud of our Exemplary status, as well as, our school being in the TOP 2 % in TEXAS. The below comments concern me. If you have an issue this "bad" it would seem that you would handle it in house. I cannot stand by silent. There is no way our school to have the above stats they do that we would have an admin that could not communicate with us as parents. Same as the teachers...We would not have the stats above if the teachers were not held accountable for EVERYTHING they do and say in and out of the classroom. Stats do not lie. VERY proud to be South Euless parent and very proud my son is a South Euless student.

We are new to the district and school. I will say by far, these teachers are the BEST we've experienced and I hate that we were not in the district earlier especially at this school. The 6th grade teachers are fantastic and that explains why the Exemplary status, its the Teachers and the students perform better due to better instruction. We came from Arlington school district and Irving so this has been a GREAT experience for us and I wish we were in district when my son started school in kindergarten. I am a very proud new parent to this school and district.

I would appreciate the office staff & principal being more understanding & knowledgeable. The principal gets upset & takes everything as a personal jab against him. The office staff tells the parents they don't know the answer. This gets very tiresome. Parents that don't ask questions that could hurt the principal's feelings are the only ones that are made to feel welcome in this school.

My daughter has been going to South Euless for the past 4 yrs. She loves the school, teacher, office staff. As for me not so much when it comes to children with special health needs. Such as asthma, food allergies. They are very defensive when they are called out on situations. The principal takes everything personal and is just very unprofessional. I'm so glad that this is my daughters last year. I think we will send her back to private school just to avoid Euless I.S.D! If anyone would ask me if I would recommend this school. I would not!!!

We researched areas and school thoroughly before choosing exemplary rated South Euless. Aesthetically, the school is well kept and tucked away in a tree lined residential neighborhood with lots of character. The Principal and teachers have amazed me with how much effort they put into being avilable to the needs of the students and parents. They truely go above and beyond! They have a system in place that flows with ease and I feel a sense of comfort every day that I drop my son off. The education they receive here is top notch! My son has homework everynight that challenges him, and I can see the progress he is making everyday he comes home. I feel the school is very ahead of the game in every aspect. I honestly can't begin to say enough about South Euless. I love the heavy emphasis they put on reading. My 1st grader has a minimum of 20 minutes of reading required every night and much more! I will wrap up by saying, there is no wonder this school has been top ranked for so many years and remains one of the best in the distrct. I feel very lucky to have found such a great school!

What has happened to the idea of the staff knowing the answers to the questions that we as parents ask? We ask a simple question and the answer is either "I don't know" or "I'm not sure" which is getting tiresome! What happened to the secretary that knew the answers and was friendly to the parents? We could always count on her to know the answers and smile when she talked to us unlike the rude and unknowledgeable stones that are there now wasting our time and money.

I love this school .The principle,the teachers and the cafetria ladies are all excellent and I appreciate what their doing for our kids.The thing that I don't understand is why the two front ladies are so rude with parents.They are supposedto be the front cover of the school.They have no manners especially the one with black hair .We are not begging them ,we are just asking them in a nice way to do their job.Is it that hard to speak with a parent in a nice smiley face for two minutes.They are really a bad impression of the school.

I have been very lucky to have had some wonderful teachers who have gone above and beyond to help with identifying my son's ADD/Dyslexia problems. Mrs.Edmonds, Karim, Black, Cranford and Moore all get an A++!! They sincerely do care about my son and our educational frustrations. Both my son and I are very familiar with most teachers @ SEE....they do work as a team and are all willing to help in any way possible. (P.S. The office staff could use some classes in customer service...they do not give a good impression on what the school really is all about at all! -- I love the SEE teachers and staff!)

I love the school but the two women at the front desk are so rude. I went to get my child from school for an appt and was told that I had to go find which class my child was in for Fine Arts. They couldn't even call three classes to see if my child was in there! They need to have training in manners!

I think the principal could be more accesible. My son studied first grade last year, but not too much homework. At last, the substitute teacher, Miss Buffy, doing excellent. Please be more nice at the front desk, the secretary is so rude some time.

The current principle has taken away some of the 'fun' activities such as the annual talent show, etc. The previous principle seemed to be more visual and excited about the school, the teachers, and the kids. The teachers are great for the majority with several in different grades that are phenomenal.

This is not a bad chool. At the same time it is not an extreamly good one too. I would say it is an average + (B+) school. I like the fact that they give lot of importance to student discipline. Most of the teachers can be rated from good to very good. Major problem I see with this school is that it many classes lacks practicals learning. I believe most of the education is confined to books. I don't current Principal is not bad. Actually I like to rate her abilities 4/5. I noticed she got rid of some staff who are not even meeting expectations.

Parent involvement very small, but seems to have some great very involved parents. There are many good teachers at this school and only a handful of exceptional teachers. The teachers seem to have their hands tied because the principal has them teaching out of TAKS preparation books only for over 3/4 of the school year. She seems to be more concerned with the TAKS scores and how the district officers view her. Unfortunately, our children are the ones that suffer at this school. If your child must attend this school, be vigilant.

I have three boys going to South Euless and we transferred from DISD two years ago. At first, I was not sure how the curriculum was going to challenge my boys, they came from a blue ribbon school with a 18:1 ratio, but after seeing how the teachers interact with them everything seems to be going well. The student/teacher ratio is comfortable where they don't get lost in the class or overlooked. All of the teachers are approachable and extremely helpful. Anyone looking to transfer or choosing to start your children at South Euless will be making a positive decision.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers make every effort to ensure the child learns at a comfortable rate. Assisted in identifying my son's ADHD problem at an early age. Assisted in the maintenance of my daughter's diabetes. Some teachers show little desire to control some children that have issues with being too aggressive towards others. Excellent overall opinion of the school.
