My daughter attended St. George for first grade. The staff is friendly and teachers are nice but there are several negatives about the school. The fund-raising obsession for the playground is out of hand. It's very clear that every penny raised will go to the playground - not teaching materials, computers or educational benefits - just the playground. Only children who pay into the fundraiser are allowed to dress for Halloween or participate in holiday activities. I find it despicable that children are not allowed to participate in standard childhood activities without paying into the fund. Educationally, the school is behind other schools. A straight A student in the classroom barely passes muster on the Stanford or Taks. Educational standards are extremely low and aside from the occassional sheet of homework, the children are not challenged in the least. Overall, the kids may be happy but they are not learning enough.
The staff at this school are very nice. They try to help you and your children in every way they can. They have a great special needs porgram and all the teachers love what they do.
The teachers at this school are not consistent in their daily agenda. I have found that St. George is academically behind then the other HISD schools. I do not recommend children who need specials needs go to this school. They do not have a program or the ability to help special needed children.
This is a happy school. When you walk in to the building the atmosphere is open and friendly. The staff truly cares about the students and they are always helpful. This school will be one of the top in Houston.
What I have noticed about this school, is that the faculty and staff are a bit rude. Moreover, my child's teacher is always yelling at her students.
Our school teaches bi-lingual and ESL. It certainly has modifications for English Language Learners. Most all of the teachers are ESL certified. And we need help with our PTO! Please step and give your input!
The school lacks secondary language, a fully equiped music program, school counselors or tutoring programs that an ordinary school provides, The school's afterschool program offers academic and sports for a monthly fee!
St. Geroge Place is a beautiful school. However,the cafeteria staff need manners, and the PTO participants are worried more about money than student related issues.
My son's been attending this school for 2 years. The staff is professional and dedicated and the facility is brand-new. I highly recommend attending St Geo Place Elem!

My daughter loves this school, and her teacher. She was very nervous about starting this year because it's a new school. After her day she was so excited! I was to of course because I wanted her to like her new environment. St. George's Place has a lot to offer our children in the edication, and extraciricular activities. The staff is very attentative to the parents and children. Wonderfull school I give them 6 stars.
This is a new year for my family and I at St. George Place, but I am very excited about this move. The staff is extremely busy as this is a new school, but they always seem to have time to help. I strongly believe this will be the best experience I have had in the HISD school district since relocating to Houston 6 years ago. Thank you all nad hats off!
