I would not recommend working at this school. Leadership is in the process of being replaced. Teacher turn over is high...that says it all!!!
Agree with the other parent. Beautiful school but has VERY high teacher turnover due to a VERY bad principal there. She treats teachers very bad and retaliates when they speak up.
Beautiful building with poor leadership. There is a high turn over on teachers. Many teachers leave at the end of the school year but some leave during the school year. This leaves the students to suffer until a new teacher is put in the classroom. Teachers and staff are friendly. Discipline is also an area of concern.
I attended this school from 87 to 89. Best school experience ever! Wish i could find some of my old friends and teachers from my time there! Mrs. Webber and Mr. Thornhill were my favorite teachers.
dont like the school lots of stuff be hidden. students hitting and being bulled......it looks like a good school but THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THE KIDS ONLY THE MONEY THEY GET FOR EVERY KID AT THE SCHOOL DON'T SEND YOUR KIDS TO PATTERSON .GET A BETTER SCHOOL. PRINCIPAL NEED ANOTHER JOB NOT WITH KIDS.......
I am a parent whose children attended Patterson in the 50's, 60's and 70's. With an exemplary rating and a new building nearing completion, it's still a great school in a great neighborhood.
Patterson is a great school! The teachers are great and they really seem to care about the kids. My daughter has attended since Kinder and is now in 5th. Last year she scored commended on all parts of the TAKS. They have Art and Sports but currently do not have a music class. They also recently opened a new Science lab for individualized instruction. There is also a parent center where parents can attend workshops, or ESL classes etc. I would highly recommend Patterson to anyone.
