This school has taught me alot of knowledge and i am a current thankful student.Teachers have so many creative learning activities and i respect that.It's many comment and im sticking to it


Posted May 7, 2010

Coming from some one who knows this school very well, I have to say I have never ever ever in my life walked into such an unreal atmosphere. The school is horrible! Can you say racist? Can you say rude? Can you say unprofessional? The teachers, they go to work to get paid for doing nothing, they treat their job as if it is a fashion show. How shameful. They're more worried about passing the TAKS test so t hey can keep their jobs. Office staff there isn't enough time in this world to let you know how redicously unprofessional they are.

This school does not help children that has a problem with reading comprehension. My son has been at this school since Pre - K it was a good a school know the teachers are just about passing the TASK not helping these kids with the basic information.
