Fielder is a very large school and is 20 years old. However, I do not feel my child gets lost or overlooked and the school is well maintained. There is a lot of parent involvement and the PTA is top notch. My child has gotten a great education with lots of extra opportunities. Additionally, he is on an IEP and his extra needs were quickly identified and met. I have found the teachers and administration to be easy to communicate with. My one complaint would be the car pick up and drop off lines. It seems that most students are no longer eligible for a bus due to cutbacks of some sort. It is not unusual to wait 30 minutes in line to pick up my child and the car congestion around the school can be overwhelming during these times.
I was a student at Fielder Elemantary for pre-k through 5th grade and it was an outstanding experience! I dont agree with the comments that say that it is only a good school for kids that are in the bilingual program because, i was in both programs, bilingual and regular. I absolutely recommend this school to anybody. These days in any school its common to see bullying, truthfully, i really didnt experience that or see it happening. Teachers are extremely nice professional, outgoing, and reasonable sometimes, though, they can be alittle srtict but... Come to this school!!!! It is highly recommended by an average good student! :)
The entire 4th grade has been in portable buildings for at least the last six years that I am aware of after moving from another KISD school. This school offers several different programs in addition to regular education. Fielder has an AB (adaptive behavior) unit, pre-k program and bilingual and TWI programs for grades K-5. Yes, there is a hallway dedicated to "Pre-K" which FYI is also offered at other KISD schools. There is no such thing as a "bilingual hallway". Apparently you don't come to your child's school or you would know that. There is a hallway for each and every grade level and within those halls you will find the mix of bilingual and TWO classrooms for that grade level. Unfortunately, KISD is such a fast growing community and portable buildings have become a commodity on just about every campus - drive around and see for yourself! No matter if there is strictly regular education offered or a variety of programs at a school you are going to find that at just about every school in KISD there are portables on campus. It is unfortunate that someone is going to have to be placed in those buildings to accommodate the growth.
Fielder is the best school for bilingual students but for regular students it is one of the worst in Texas. They pushed the whole fourth grade out into portables so they could have a bilingual hallway. There is even a bilingual pre-school that takes up a hallway. STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL ZONE.
The School is great. I lake the Quality The parents can help the School improve in some of the labs the School have. I helped one time and enjoyed a lot.
I do not like the school at all. When i moved to katyisd i was thinking my child was going to get a good educations,Wrong, there priority at this school is bilingual student. I think that they should ask parents if they want there child to go a bilingual school. My thing is every child should be a priority and not one set of children. All i can say is katyisd am so disappointed in you.
Teachers are very good. Facilities are really nice. Director on the other hand is very close-minded.
Excellent School. We are new to US and chose Katy because of Schools reputation. Mrs. Fritchie is a wonderful teacher. All the staff is great and very friendly. My daughter is in Kindergarten and she loves her teacher and her school. Great expereince so far............
Excellent school. We just had our second annual science fair. I believe we are the only elementary school in our area that has a science fair! It was a positive experience. The teachers are very caring and go the extra mile.
The facility and teachers are wonderful. there are a lot of great enrichment activities for the children.
My daughter loves Fielder Elem. school. Next year we will have a new Elementary really close to our house and she begs us not to change her! Thank you to all teachers and staff for making feel happy to my daughter..
My son has thrived at this school. I appreciate the time Mr. Rhodes has spent helping him succeed this year.
Excellent school. This is our third year at Fielder Elementary and we had nothing but positive experiences. My daughter loves it there. Teachers are outstanding.
Mrs Keith is a top first grade teacher! I am upset she is leaving. Wherever she goes, she will make a positive impact. She is perfect for any grade, but I hope she will always shape the kids early (we need more like her). I am sorry to here she is going as I would have asked for her for my second child!!! Excellent teacher! Katy parent
Fielder teachers are tops in our book. We have always had experienced teachers with many years of experience. We like the personal attention that has been paid to our students' personal needs. The administrative staff is in need of a change. We would like to see individuals leading the school who are creative, passionate and hard working.
This school actually sent home fundraising materials with my diabled son (he can't speak) I thought the front office people to be very rude and disrespectful. My child's teacher (special needs) was inexperienced. glad we're gone!
I recently moved from an ESL school in Katy which is certainly lower on the economic level, yet offers more programs for the children such as Chess 2 days a week before school. Spanish three days a week after school plus Violin during school hours. These are all programs managed by on staff teachers not outsiders brought in. At Fielder there is a lot of money brought in by fundraisers more than you can imagine. For some reason they cannot justify any specialized programs. I have spoke with the staff and they use the money for books and computers and more p.e. equipment. Which says isn't that what our tax dollars are for(?)Currently there are outsiders coming in 1 day a week for spanish and chess is available to players on the average of 8 times during the school year. Sure the education is good yet no better than the ESL school.
They need to institute the AR reading program. Every other school in KISD participates, but not Fielder. The teachers don't seem very happy and take it out on the kids.
Fielder Elementary has been a wonderful learning environment for my children who began their academics in Montessori School. The staff is committed to supporting the students and parents in any way they can. My soon to be third grader even has school spirit which was unheard of for elementary school when I was growing up. It just feels safe! (Not to mention there are 3 computers in every classroom)
