Posted June 8, 2010

I worked at this campus for a year and I loved it. The teachers and principals here care about the children and work very hard. The teachers don't run out at 3:45. They spend a lot of time after hours doing things for the kids; academically and for fun. There is not a lot of parental involvement as in other GPISD schools but they have great volunteers. Great school with very caring, experienced teachers.
