I am very frustrated with this school year. For the past few years we have been pleased. The teachers work hard and are very responsive to parent feedback. This year I do not feel like my child is being challenged. I think I have discovered the reason. It seems that the kids that cause trouble have no consequences. My child talks about kids throwing desks, kicking teachers, talking back to teachers, and running out of the classroom. I could understand if it happened once but it happens often. There doesn't seem to be any consequence. My child can't be getting the same education that would be possible if the classroom were better behaved. I hear that the teacher tries talking to these kids, clipping down to a different color and making them walk at recess. It doesn't seem to matter. I would think that the school would have a stronger discipline policy. We will be looking at charter schools or even paying for private for next year. This was a great school but seems to have lost its leadership.

Having been at another RISD elementary school where the teachers didn't seem to care, I can't believe how much these teachers want to teach our kids! I love the communication all the staff has with parents. I can't say enough great things about this school!!!

We moved here from Los Angeles a year ago and my son had a little catching up to do, I must say. Since attending Big Srpings, he has really blossomed academically!

Great school. Fantastic teachers. My kids love it! Would like to see more PE and extra-curricular activities. But I guess there's school budget to consider. This 2007-2008 year, they're ranked as an Exemplary school. Top 10% in the state of TX. PTA of over 90%, what more can you ask. :)
