Not only was I cursed out on the first day by a fellow parent for stealing her spot, but I was also called some awful names in front of multiple children, Ray Daily employees, and other parents. That left a very sour taste in my mouth and I have not yet had anything good come to make me change my mind about this school. From other talks with other parents, I was told their children were placed into ESL classes simply based ON THEIR LAST NAME! How disrespectful! I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, really. I truly hope they raise their standards and hire better teachers and school leaders!

This school has very mean and rude employees,hopefully HISD consider these reviews,I have heard from several parents about very immpolite behavior in this school,the school principle should have more observation of her employees and the way they act.

This message is in direct response to the previous post that was made by a teacher. Now, since standardized testing is the "latest" trend in evaluating a child's success, why would it not be disconcerting that only 3 were able to pass an exam be it the district level assessment or STAAR? I know the passing rates as confirmed by the teacher. Also, I can speak about the fundraisers, because I support them EVERY TIME. It not the $ I have a problem with, but into what have these efforts manifested? Am I exaggerating about the lack of field trips, the non-existent music program, the fact that there's yet to be any creative program put on by the kids this yet to date? Then to boot, you dismiss me and tell my I should seek out a private education if I am so unhappy. Wow! My mother is teacher in the same district and has been for nearly 2 decades. In fact I come from a family of educators, administrators, and civil servants. So yeah, I know how difficult a teacher's job can be. I never once bashed the teachers in any way. I just gave my opinion on how I believe the program to be run, which I am entitled to based on my and my child's experience. Thanks anyway!

The state exam hasn't been given yet so how do you know your child is only one of three? If you were more aware you would know that it was a District Level Assessment! And the fundraisers are to help the school be able to provide more materials and activities for the students. Why don't you seek out The Village School or John Paul since you're so unhappy, because teacher's jobs are hard enough without unsupportive parents!!!!!

Terrible school! Teachers do not communicate with parents! The teachers are there for a pay check only.

School is neat clean and organized always. Teachers really seem to care. We are very happy with the student dress code, discipline and teacher professionalism of teachers. Have had only one negative experience with one teacher.(Everyone has a bad day sooner or later). We do spend a lot of time with our child and their studies, and we do not expect teachers to raise our child. It seems to be a great partnership with this school. I do wish they would lay off the fundraisers. Gene

Before my daught attended this school, I had concerns due to the fact she would be a minority. Great Teachers!! Our daughter has been there three years- Kindergaten, 1st and now 2nd. All three years the teachers have been sharp hard workers. The keep discipline in the class and are no-nonsense. My daughter has enjoyed learning at Ray K Daily.

Excellent teachers, strong organizational skills, new and tidy. Ability to motivate the students. This school is wonderful, they know how to manage a diverse environment. As a parent of a 4th grader I strongly recommend it.

Huh, how can I explain this in one word? Hmmmmmm.... HORRIBLE. Um like. The teachers are really inexperienced and they have an ugly dress code!! How horrible is that? I''ve seen a wayyyyyyyy better dress code than THAT. I honestly don't recommend this school. Don't even think about enrolling here.

As a neighboor, I like the school's well controlled outdoor lighting. (So comments must be at least 15 words.)

I am really pleased to have my child attend this school. The teachers are exceptional and the staff and teachers genuinely care about the children. Parents and students need to be held accountable for their children's actions instead of making false accusations. I have a daughter there and had a son who attended for years. Gender inequality was certainly not a factor for me. Then again, my son was not a trouble maker.

Gender equality is a huge issue here-NOT impressed. This school favors little girls and oppress the male students. All of the girls are aware of the staffs attitude toward boys and the girls make every effort to lie every chance they get on the boys. The boys endure severe consequences including being labeled as trouble makers.
