My child was in Mr. Garcia's 3rd grade class. I'm extremely satisfied with my child's progress. My child was a struggling child, but with his help he is now doing great. Parents are welcomed in his class, and he provides you with all the help you need to keep helping your child at home. Now my child loves to read and is interested in Science.

very TAKS driven- if your child not taking the reading, math, science or writing TAKS- they are ignored. Only students that 'count' are getting an education.

Teachers try very hard. Students are from low socio economic background therefore, they do not have a lot of resources. Teacher come in to teach everyday.
