Windsong is a school that promotes an old image of elitism and academic greatness but ask parents how their kids feel doing there, and the answers are staggering. After two children attending for over a year, this school has been a big mistake. The counselor is nonexistent. There are bullies that are allowed to consistently be mean to other kids, girls drama is prevalent in classrooms, character doesn't really count, and this terrible environment destroys kids self esteem. I do not wish any child to experience what I've witnessed at Windsong. There needs to be some intervention and a sounding strong counselor put into place that drives character and eliminate ALL bullying. It's impossible to state that academics are terrific as when kids emotional needs are not met and classrooms are filled with drama, the kids learning is negatively affected. This school drives academics by strictly focusing on testing. More testing is done at this school then witnessed at other top schools in the state of Texas.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Teachers do not deal with the real problems in the classroom to improve the learning environment.

This school definitely "teaches to the test", and does so successfully. However, that is all that they do. Once the testing is over, they show movies in school, such as "Frozen" and "Despicable Me 2", which I found shocking. There is no band or orchestra. The physical education classes are enormous, and the "specials" teachers are shared with other schools in the district. If you would like your child to get a quality, well-rounded education, you will not find it here. What you will get is simply something deemed "adequate" by the state of Texas. If you are moving from the Northeast, don't be fooled by the ratings and test scores, remember they are only comparing this school to others in Texas. The school is very resource poor, and the swagger, bravado, and superior attitude in a place where education isn't valued really is annoying.

We love Windsong and have been happy here. The principal is wonderful, very involved. Teachers are passionate. It has exceeded our expectations!

Windsong is an excellent school with teachers that really care about students. The principal is always visable and willing to listen to parents and their concerns. My son has had a wonderful experience at Windsong.

As a parent of 2 Windsong students I found the faculty to be superior(we have lived and attended different schools in U.S and abroad) My kids were challenged and enjoyed their teachers.



- a parent
Bullying is rampant here. There is little or nothering done about it. Class conditions are crowded.
