We are new to the area and have been so pleased with the teachers and all of the staff at this school. My daughter struggles with dyslexia, and since starting here, has brought her reading grade up 11 points and had almost completely graduated from the dyslexia program. The staff really cares about every student as well as the parents too!

Amazing school! We love that this school is much smaller than most of the others in CCISD. Everyone seems to know everyone, and there seems to be a lot more accountability because of this! The principle is pretentious, and wildly disliked by most , but the teachers are amazing! Terri, the front office secretary, is wonderful. I am so glad we chose this school! Plus, walking our beautiful trail to school every morning has really created a sense of community. We couldn't be happier!

I am very unsatisfied with our school. The first week of school 9/29/2013 my son was sent home as a walker instead of a Day Care. So my 5 year old in Kindergarten walked all alone to his day care un-supervised. I had e-mailed the teacher letting her know the day that my son was supposed to be a walker under my supervision and instead they sent him as walker on the wrong day. Thank God he was not kidnapped, run over, rapped etc. I e-mailed the Principal for a conference after school and never received a reply. Instead I showed up at the school to speak with her and find out what happened and raise concern so it doesn t happen to anyone. The principal gave me the runaround and never gave me a straight answer. I asked the question who puts the kids in the lines for walker and bus riders ? The principals reply was I don t know !!!! Nothing was documented and I was supposed to hear from the principal 9/05/2013 and I have not heard from them to this day. Thank God he is safe, his angels were with him. I hope this doesn t happen to anyone else.

We have had a great experience with our kids at Armand Bayou. One of our kids was on the robotics team and it has changed his life. He has learned to do presentations and work as a part of the team. The robotics team won in both the local and state competition. He was also part of the gifted program and took a leadership class. I would recommend this school to anyone.

We moved here from Goose Creek ISD which was an absolute nightmare! This school has outstanding teachers and a professional and organized principal. The parental involement is lacking (except for the select few parents that are always there and available to help) but over all this school is absolutely wonderful!

Ms. Cave was our child's 2nd grade teacher. She presents academics so every child learns in her class. She causes her students to find their strengths with positive encouragement and reenforcement. Our child's confidence and self esteem soared as he succeeded academically in her class. Ms. Cave is a pillar to elementary education and major asset to ABE.

This is my child first year at Armand Bayou, we have loved it! The teachers care about all of the children. The standards are high in all areas. Mrs Machnaik really enjoys and wants parent involment. She really focuses on reading from day one. The reading level of your child is very important to her. She started reading contracts from day one of the school year. I am at the school a lot and I see the teachers and staff are so caring to the children. My child is a little behind in reading. We thought their might be a learning disability. We went through the process with Mrs Machniak help. After all the testing there was no learning disability. I feel that it done shiftly with Mrs Machniak help. She is a very involved teacher. Most of the teachers I have come across have years of experince. The is a great school.

It's a great school for children of Pk-5th grade. Under the leadership of the Principal plus the outstanding performance of all teachers and staff, the school has won the State Examplerary School in the past few years. The school has the highest TAKS scores among the CCISD last year. But, level of parent involement needs to be encouraged. The relationship between teachers and parents need to be improved. It is my daughter's second years in this school, and she is like it every day and every year!

My son and daughter attended Armand Bayou Elementary K-5. I found teachers to be highly skilled in knowledge and presentation of curriculum as well as extra-curricular activities. Classrooms provided structure as well as time for individual student needs. The Principal was highly experienced and well respected by teachers, parents, as well as the district. There was high parent involvement in all activities - no lack of parent volunteers for any need. Parents and teachers worked well together making overall learning experience best for students. Both of my children were well prepared for advancement to Intermediate Level.

Armand Bayou has been an excellent place for our child to begin learning his academic education accompanied by positive social attitudes. Our principal and teachers are child advocates who promote the support of family and school. ABE is a safe, secure environment with a visitor sign in policy and view of entrances by office staff. The classrooms are between 19-23 students providing a quality student/teacher ratio. Our child learns and retains the material taught because of the care taken by our teachers to make it interesting, educational and fun. Our child has confidence in himself because of the trust and respect given and received between students, teachers and staff. What a great foundation for our child to build the rest of his education upon. Thank You, Mrs. Kelling and ABE Teachers and Staff. -Cheri Ewert

If your child is entering 1st grade, Mrs. Piggott is the favorite. I also hear many great things regarding Mrs. McNeiack. Armand Bayou Elementary relies heavily on parent participation which provides great satisfaction for moms, dads, and other caregivers of the children who attend the school. Visitors are checked in through the office, providing a safe and secure environment for our children. The surrrounding neighborhood is skattered with parks, the green belt, wild life, and a few wild children. It is truely a great place to live!
