I am happy sending my daughter to this school. She is about to complete kindergarten, and while at first I was nervous about the education she would receive, I have learned it is definitely on par with the rest of the state. The lady that coordinates the parents to volunteer is very dedicated. The have on-site after school care provided by the ISD as well, for an affordable price.
