Fantastic faculty, extremely involved PTA & smaller school make this a top school in GISD. Keep up the good work!
My children both currently attend Watson and I am extremely pleased with the education they receive as well as the care from the teachers and staff. Starting with the principals, the true care and concern for the students is wonderful and makes them all feel loved and important. The education they receive is very good and the opportunities they have with the latest technology keeps the students up to date. The music teacher creates incredible performances - thank you for all your creativity Mrs. Knudson. They are able to take the children on lots of interesting field trips. I love Mrs. Clements, 2nd grade, she is amazing! This school is very racially diverse which adds so much to my children's educational experience. It is an older building (by 50-60 years), but the Watson staff do a great job to maximize the space. We are excited as to what the next few years at Watson will bring!
Watson's success with students is based on a terrific academic curriculum that meets the needs of all students. Teachers, principals, and staff promote the well-being of the whole child, both academic and social. My children are African-American, and Watson is the perfect school for them and children of any race or economic status.
I have had two children go all the way through Watson 1st-5th grade. There is no comparison to the outstanding quality education and excellent teachers and administration they have at Watson. My daughters are hispanic and I felt they received a top notch, well rounded, culturally diverse experience during their years under the direction of a superior Principal and faculty. If you are looking for a school with a warm, loving, and educationally exciting environment....you have found it at Watson Technology Center!
If your child is white, intelligent, perfectly behaved, is middle-upper middle class, and has no learning differences, this is definitely the school for you.
I have three children that have been to this school. My oldest daughter went all the way through andmy younger two are presently attending. I can not say enough about the how amazing this place is. The principal cares so much about her staff and students and goes out of her way consistently to make her school top notch. The teachers are the best I have ever seen. They care about the children and have fantastic teaching techniques. I am so thankful that my kids have had the opportunity to attend.
I love this school the teachers teach us everything we need to know and the teachings may be hard but teach alot.
Watson MST is a fantastic school. My daughter attended 2-5th grade and my son is entering 2nd grade at Watson and has been there since Kindergarten. The teachers are outstanding and truly care for all of the children in their school. I truly feel like they are part of an extended family for my children because of the love and support they have given through the the last four years. My daughter is now on her way to an Academy middle school much thanks to her wonderful instructors at Watson. Don't underestimate the fine arts instruction at this school - it's outstanding!
This school is the best! I Love the teachers! My child had a ball his first year in the third grade and can't wait for school to start again!
This school is the best. Very challenging for the students and keeps them learning all the time. The teachers are awesome and care about the students. The third grade teacher and 4 th grade teachers are the bes tyou can find.
I wish I could agree with the rave reviews Watson has received from other parents, but I don't. My son has had a few good teachers, but others have been horrible. The school is very regimented and inflexible. Not all children are the same, and they should not be treated as if they are. I don't agree with the practice of punishing an entire class because of the actions of one or a few, but it happened time and time again while my son was in the 4th grade. Again, some of the staff there is outstanding, but it is inconsistent, and seems to be steadily declining. Turnover rate is very high!
My son attended Watson from 2nd grade through 5th and we were extremely pleased with Watson. The faculty are amazing and they really care for the students. If your child is in the magnet program, do not go to Jackson for middle school, that school was awful. Go to Brandenburg.
Watson is awesome! My child has been at Watson since 1st grade and loves it! The staff at Watson are the best. The teachers are very loving and careing for all the students.
I love Watson Tech and so do my daughters. Both of my girls had trouble with their letters and their wonderful teachers have helped them get where they are at now! The teachers really care about their students an want the best for them. They also like for alot of parent involvement I think that helps our children stay focused and for them to know that we are interested about what is going on at school! I love Watson Tech. I haven't had any problems and highly recommend to put your child into this school, again the teachers that my daughters have had are the best and I know that the rest of the teachers are just as wonderful!
My daughter has been at Watson for her 2nd grade year and now starting her 3rd grade year. The curriculum is outstanding and keeps her on her toes. The work at school is somewhat challenging along with her homework everynight. The parent involvement I think is great. Many functions I volunteer for has a great turn out. The teachers and librarian are awesome and I haven't had any problems with anybody. The school is very structured and the kids know what they are to do and what not to do. I would definitely recommend children who have a high interest in Math or Science to become a student here. It will help them in the long run during there education and even in the real world.
The academic quality is very high, parent involvment is great, teachers are very involved with students
My grandson went to pre school at Watson tech. and it was a joy for him, after his first week, I ask him how he like his school and he said I love it, it was that way the whole year. I have a high praise for his teacher and his mother for the great team that they were and the way my grandson has developed and is now preparing for 1 grade. I just say, thank you for all the hardwork and all that you did and wishing you all a great comming year. My grandson can read and is excited about going to 1st grade.
