School is great but I have to agree with the last comment about the principal. She is never around and not visible at all. The one time I called she passed my message to someone else. Would be nice to have a principal that is around and you get the feeling they care about the school.

Great school, we relocated here and they are very welcoming. We have only been here a year but I haven't met/ever seen the principal - so that is why I rated principal leadership low. Great teachers, huge parent involvement.

The parent involvement is what makes Friendswood the city to live in. Everyone is involved. The teachers challenge and care about the students.

Wonderful school with a very warm and inviting atmosphere. Teachers are there for the right reason.....they love kids and seeing them succeed! Not only do I teach here...my kids have gone to CLine and I could not be happier with the education they have received from some wonderful teachers and staff!

It is a wonderful school with dedicated teachers who motivate the kids as well as make them feel at home. My son loves going there since learning is both fun and challenge. Great English as a Seconds Language and supplemental reading program. Very safe and friendly.
