New, young, energetic Principal and Vice Principal. They both love kids, and both have several of their own. The PTO is great, and the teachers are too. The school is electrifying and exciting for kids. Great place to learn. The only reason I didnt give 5 stars on teachers is because we had one year with a teacher that was less than impressive to me. Others parents didnt seem to have a problem with her, but as I said, my personal view.... she is tired and needs to retire.

I've been very impressed with both the school staff and the level of instruction. The teachers I've met have been interested in my son's performance and challenged him to excel.

This is an excellent school and the teachers are great. I am sad that they are rezoning and my child will be attending a different school next year.

This school is one of the finest elementary schools in fort.worth. The teachers are all very kind and generous. If a student does not understand something, the teacher does not move on with the leason or ignore it, the teachers give one-on-one explaining. We hope you decide to enroll in our school. - Mrs.martana of acton elementary

I am very proud of having my child go to Aton Elementary! I always feel like my child is safe, and is getting a high quality of learning from the teachers. I do wished that there was a way to keep the children from coming back to School too soon after being sick, because it makes it very hard to keep my child well, when he is always coming home with something new, but I guess that is a big wish for all of us parents, huh?
