Posted January 15, 2011

I have been very pleased with the quality education that has been given to my child at this campus. It is a caring and welcoming place that has made a difference in the academic life of my child.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 14, 2011

This school has made myriads of steps in improving its capacity to ensure the learning success of its students. The scores have come up immensely as can be confirmed by the last state-mandated test results (Spring, 2010). The campus leadership for the past three years has knowledgeably guided the staff and students in the right direction, and parents have been very involved in each aspect of the process. I am very proud to have been a part of this effective change initiative, and I absolutely believe that students who attend this school are being served with a quality education.

This school along with the entire GISD educational system needs CHANGE! I hope we head in the right direction before it is too late.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 10, 2009

This school is all about the low performing students and a Feel Good Education mind set. There is little to no support from administation to the teachers and moral is terrible. Parents are told they are welcome but they really are not.
