I had originally picked CMISD for my new home, but after sending my son to CMISD high school, and the schools inability to treat all students equally, as well as the High School principals dual standard for athletes vs other students, I moved my son to Phoenix. I was totally delighted by Phoenix's attention to students and the efforts to try and treat all students equally, as well as the sincere concern and interests by school teachers and staff for the students. My son attended his Junior & senior years at Phoenix and graduated from Phoenix High School. My grandchildren also attended phoenix last year until their father was re-stationed in California. I recently inherited a new son with my engagement and he will be starting 1st grade with Phoenix this year 2009-2010. Phoenix's lower TAS scores were a result of a high transfer-in of GISD students.

This school has a very family-educational-like environment. The students are not pressured like they are in other schools. There is less drama than what GISD has. I find it easier to learn because there is less student than other schools. Everyone gets along, it is just a great school to be in.

I am concerned about the over all lack of organization. The staff seems to be making process and procedures up as they go. The below average professionalism of the staff and some of the teachers is apparent after the first few days of being at the school. I would recommend making several trips to the school during the day to get a true sense of how the school is run to be sure this is an environment that you and your child will be comfortable in.

My children have attended Phoenix for many years. As a staff member, I have seen the school grow tremendously while maintaining a close family-like environment. My children are thriving academically and artistically.

I moved my children to PCS from GISD and am very pleased about the move. I appreciate the discipline policies of Phoenix. I have also been very grateful for the individual attention that students receive. I like the small school atmosphere.

This was the first year my nephew has gone to Phoenix. He had such a great time being here, and I saw how patient and involved his teacher was. Each day I would pick him up, he would be so happy. The teachers here are very creative, and determined to help the children be successful. I am very pleased with Phoenix and glad that my nephew will be going here again next year.

Phoenix has drastically dropped in every area over the last 2years. My children have gone to Phoenix for 3years and I have finally had enough, they will go to GISD before they attend PCS again. They have changed their focus from the individual, now it is all about growth. The school report cards are failing, my children are having problems with bullies and they the assigned school work is not at the same level of other schools.

My children have been attending PCS for 4 years. The staff go above and beyond to provide for these kids. The student population is diverse and a growth spurt brought the accountability rating down last year. Despite, the numbers that the state measures, all of the children are given opportunities they wouldn't have at an ISD. Small classes and individual development plans help focus on kids' specific needs.

I moved my daughter to Phoeinix from a larger and supposedly better school and have been absolutely thrilled. Her teacher is wonderful and the opportunities for varied learning such as drama, keyboarding, Dream Team (cheering), and the Paleontology club, Book Club etc. make this school really something special. My daughter is reading at a very high level now (she could barely sound out words at the beginning of the year). I love this unique and special place of learning. As a charter it struggles financially, but it is still better for kids than its richer cousins.

My son has gone to PCS for 2 years now and he and myself, as a parent, have been very happy with this school. We moved here 2 years ago and schooling was my #1 concern. I'm so glad I happened upon this school. Wouldn't have picked any other school after reviewing the stats prior to our move. The teacher/student ratio is great! I know my son is getting the academit attention he needs. And he's had more opportunities here in this smaller school compared to the big city school he was attending. There are some wonderfully smart teachers at this school, which only means our children are learning from the best. And they have no tolerance code, which is nice. It's nice to see this school is expanding.

I cannot say enough good things about Phoenix. The availability of 'extra' classes, such as Spanish, art, drama and music is unparalelled. Parental involvement is very high and the curriculum is strong. The teachers are very devoted and so willing to work with parents. My children are thriving at Phoenix. We love this school!

My grandson has attended Phoenix School for the past two years. He has excelled in all areas and has had wonderful teachers. Parents at Phoenix are very involved in the quality of the school program.

Phoenix has a strong, core curriculum and has met the standards for being a 'recognized' school within the state of Texas. As a charter school, Phoenix has a mission of educating students through a fine-arts infused curriculum. All primary and intermediate age students have art, music and theatre scheduled into their daily routine. Among the special programs at the secondary level are photography, playwriting, InvenTeam, dance, soccer and playwriting. This year Phoenix also added an instrumental music program featuring stringed instruments. Strong parent involvement is also evident as parents volunteer to drive on the many field trips scheduled throughout the year.
