We are so fortunate to be zoned to S@SGP! It is a fantastic school; we transferred in after private school and are much happier here than at our previous school for which we paid $20K/year! The administration, staff, and teachers have a lot of pride in their school, and it shows in what the children learn every day. Can't wait for the new year!
I LOVE the School at St. George Place!! We just finished our second year here and we could not be happier. I am very pleased with the staff and my students teacher, as well as the staff are easily accessible. I recommend this campus to any perspective parents that read this site.
This school is horrible What I have noticed about this school, is that the staff are rude.
I rate this school 5 stars excellent in academic teacher skills and the atmosphere is delightful
Great school, excellent education. My children moved to St. George from Cy-fair and so far we have not been disappointed. As parents, we are very fortunate to have our kids attend such a wonderful school. I may not agree or like everything that goes on there but when it comes to education, St. George rocks!!!.
I love this school! I am so happy that I decided to send my children here instead of private school. My kids learned more than I expected and they both recently qualified for the GT program. I was pleased to see that this campus was ranked 53rd best in Houston by the Children at Risk survey that came out earlier in the year. I was blown away by the quality of work that was on display during the IB expo in the spring. I cannot wait for the upcoming school year so my children can begin to learn Mandarin. Love St. George.
ME LIKES A LOT IS the FIRST YEAR OF MY SON And SEE A lot of PROGRESS And LEARNING... ALWAYS AM HELPING And SUPPORTING IN MY FREE TIME.

IM SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE A SCHOOL THIS WONDERFUL WHERE MY SON CAN GO AND HAVE A VERY GOOD EDUCATION.
The school at St. George is delightful. My son has been attending for 3 yrs. now and he loves it!! The teachers are great and have a sincere interest in the students. Hopefully the school will incorporate more physical activity in their program, but aside from that , we love it!!
St. George Place is the primary example of how we should be showing children what a fun and caring place to learn is. I have a son in 1st grade and he loves it, learns well, and has made lots of trusting friends. love it!!!
My son is starting his 3rd year at this school & we both love it! When he started PreK he was behind, developmentally & showed signs of autism. The teachers got together & really worked with him to understand his impiarments & delays. With thier help he has really improved. Before S@SGP we really struggled with schools! It is a true blessing to be able to take him to school every morning eager & with a smile on his face. I couldn't ask for more! I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I just wish they had a middle & high school! And to the individual who posted the horendous review about the "unnecessary park" in front of the school... the death of the little boy truely shook the school and the community as a whole. The park is small, quaint, beautiful & a monument to an amazing child who left us too soon.
My son has attended this school for the past 3 years. Considering it is HISD, I think it is above average, but it does lack some of the language, and sports programs that I wish it had. I do agree that they do a lot of fundraising which might be better utilized, but I am thankful that the administrative staff has been approachable and considerate of any concerns I've had. Also, there are some teachers that are better than others, and clearly enjoy teaching students, but as with any school, that is not always the case. Overall, there are much worse places out there and I'm thankful that my son can get a good education without me having to pay for private school.
In response to the previous review, the 'unnecessary' garden mentioned is a memorial garden for a student who was killed in front of the school a few years ago. You should be ashamed of yourself for not knowing more about the community here before writing such an insensitive review. This school is for kind-hearted people who help their community out. Those who think it is 'horrible' clearly have never volunteered or contributed to the success of the school and would rather take shots than lift a finger to help out. Some parents have no idea how great they have it at this school--my children attended HISD schools and this one is by far above the others we have experienced. If you don't like the free education, then go spend the big $ at a private school!
This school is horrible plain and simple. I mean it looks nice but they do make you pay for everything so they can have some garden which they have managed to build on the side of the front entrance to the school, not necessary at all. That money could have gone to maybe funding some musical programs or art or even athletics which btw s@sgp doesn't have besides soccer which you have to pay for. Overall, what do you expect from HISD? Decent teachers, I think not. I mean it's an inner city school with inner city teachers and a principle who worries about what goes on outside of school more than what is taking place in her own school. I can hear the rants now, teachers work hard, teachers do this, well if you decided that you wanted to teach kids you should have been prepared for what it entails.
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.
