I have 3 children in the school, and we all like the school very much. I think it is a very safe and friendly little school. There are so very many extracurricular activities in sports, music and UIL academics of all kinds. All the activities are always looking for more kids to join and actively participate. I think the academics are good. I know a number of kids who have gone on to both UT and A&M and done well. Parent involvement in sports and band is excellent. I don't know how it is in academics. But the school and faculty is always very willing to listen and help. There is a lot of tutoring available for the kids. My wife and I are very involved in all the kids do. I know many other parents are also. In sum, we like the school and are happy here.
