Wow. Our experience couldn't be more different from the last reviewer. No school is perfect. I agree that some teachers could provide more feedback to parents. But overall, Trafton has been good for our kids, who have visibly thrived and become better students. Certainly true the school is not for every child. I don't have a problem with my child not making a sports team, and don't have a problem with the lack of a gym or auditorium. Nice to have but not essential. Good solid academics in general.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers are not what they seem they are they move at an extremely fast pace not keeping up with the students pace rather going at the pace they feel they should go at


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
There is too much homework given to the students and the teachers themselves can't keep up with the grading our child got his science test back one month after he took it

Develops character: Strongly disagree

This school has failed in providing a safe environment for its students and has people bullying each other in grade 6 through 8th and they can't even solve that problem the administration are a bunch of failures

This school is terrible and the principals are crazy they always think they are right and they think they know everything they also have a big ego they are terrible at solving problems and they should be sued for false advertising the school is underdeveloped and lacking necessary facilities such as a gym auditorium and cafeteria they make no aceptions and do not send your child to this school

My son is finishing 8th grade at Trafton and I can honestly say it has been the best experience he could have had for middle school. The academics are very strong across the board, and the school culture is warm, caring, and friendly. The education he received fully prepared him for the ISEE test, and I am confident that he is ready for high school because of the great education he has received. The teachers want the students to succeed, and are very available for assistance during breaks and study hall periods. The school was very supportive and helpful throughout the entire high school application process. We will miss Trafton next year!!

Very superficial teaching, and no critical thinking skills developed. Apart from the very average academics, school communicates very poorly with parents. There is also no room for a child who doesn't perfectly fit their mold. Tuition is cheap, but you get what you pay for.



- a
Competitive academics but poor communication between parents and faculty. Parents not treated as partners in the process. No quality foreign language program whatsoever.

After a few years at this school, I can really say that we have been very happy with the education for our children. Academics is consistently good and my kids are happy and at home here. Teachers are strict in general but kind and supportive of differences among individual children. Suits those looking for the benefits of a small school community. Core subjects are seriously focused on. The only thing we would wish for is for foreign languages to be taught in the earlier grades. Excellent school!

This is our first year at Trafton (4th grade) and we LOVE it. Trafton has been a wonderful place for my son to grow and try new things such as band and tennis. The teachers are very responsive and welcome parent involvement. We have met wonderful families and we are pleased of the friends that he hangs around with in/out of school. My son has excelled academically. We can from a HISD school where he did not use test books, so this was a learning curve for him to study from a book. The smaller classrooms allow him to be a big fish in a small pond. I think most children in the class feel that way too! I would encourage you to take a tour and let your child shadow for day. You will love all that Trafton has to offer.
