Both of my boys have grown up through the 6 years of school here at Abbett. Abbett cares about the kids safety, education, and their achievements. Wonderful living and caring teachers, administration, and the parents are amazing!

Abbett has been a great school for our daughter. It is very diverse and the teachers all seem to do everything they can to reach and teach each child. We are totally pleased with Abbett and I am not sure what more you could ask for in an elementary school.

Great teachers. My son was behind on reading and his teacher works with him before school twice a week...and he is happy to go! My daughter loves Abbett and the opportunity to participate in the Student Council to help eliminate bullying.

My family has been blessed to have our kids going to this school!!! We moved to Texas from another country and everyone from this school has been so wonderful, loving and helping. Our kids have excelled in their reading and math, they even ask me to drop them a bit earlier so they can do some extra work!!! That is a miracle itself! And it shows how much love they feel for their school. If your child needs a bit of help, they give them tutoring to help them. Really outstanding school. So, if you want your kids to have an outstanding education, learn to be compassionate and love learning, this is the school!

I have twins who just finished kindergarten at Abbett. The PTA is awesome and really cares about the kids. It is like being part of a family and everyone helps each other out. We especially loved our teacher, Mrs. Fuller, who gave 110% and went above and beyond for each of her students!! Can't wait for 1st grade!

We are so lucky that our daughter Zaina Attended Abbett Elementary this year and we are so thankful to Mrs. Traughber tireless effort with her students. Zaina started as an ESL student, yet her reading skills are unbelievable; she can read and comprehend what she reads. Our son, Abdul, will be attending Abbett as well next year and we look forward for another great year at Abbett. I. Qattan

We have had a wonderful 4 years at Abbett Elementary. There is a high level of student expectations, but is balanced by caring teachers. The high achievements made by students is due to the tireless effort of a dedicated faculty. Parents are welcome to help inside and out of the classroom. The PTA is also a well organized organization which fully funds the school's art program, including all supplies and the salary of two full time art teachers

I loved this school. It was a big jump from Kindergarten to first grade but the staff was very supportive and helped my daughter breeze right through it.

Parent Involvement is HUGE at this school. That enables so many things - PTA sponsors the Art Teacher and supplies (this is no longer a state funded 'Special'. Differentiated Curriculm is used to be able to deliver to children of all needs, from the Gifted to those that need some extra help. The campus is in a great newer neighborhood, safe, clean - completely family oriented. Sports are offerred for grades as young as 2nd and there are options for GIRLS as well as boys - something I don't see everywhere! Teachers really benefit from all the parent involvement. An awesome group of teachers and staff at this school! Nothing negative to report - and that is a bit odd for me!!
