Caprock is such an amazing school with wonderfully dedicated teachers and staff! The first grade team is absolutely great and super dedicated. You will not find a more hardworking caring bunch of people. Every parent would be lucky to have their children attend this school!!!

Caprock is a great school with outstanding teachers. They have many English as a second language students and the efforts of the teachers goes above and beyond. Another thing that makes this school stand strong is the awesome parental involvement! Proud Parent of a Caprock Gator.

My daughter has been in this school for the last three years and loves it! The teachers and staff here treat the students as if they were their own parents. Recently, the school received some much undeserved negative publicity when they scored low on state testing. Caprock has the only Bi-lingual program in the area. The school doesn't average lower because the students aren't taught properly, but rather because it's the only one in the area with bi-lingual students. My daughter loves the school and her teachers; we love the teachers and staff, and we will keep our daughter at Caprock. D. Johnson

What a great school! My kindergartener comes home from school everyday with a smile on her face and can't wait to go back. The teachers are all very caring and experienced. The staff goes above and beyond to help each student, and it shows! Way to go Caprock!

My son goes here. He wakes up every morning and doesn't want to go to school, he says he is bored and that students are mean. He is 7 and has been bullied constantly and has been hit by other students multiple times. His teacher is lazy and absent minded. I don't think he is learning. This schools state rating is below average. Its a strange mix of students, there are like 6 trailer parks feeding here and somehow a really large number of Spanish speaking kids, yet its right in the heart of woodland springs which is middle class and mostly Caucasian. The principle is nice but apathetic and the VP is nice but doesn't discipline. The lunch room is a zoo. If I had the money I would put my boy in a nice private school. This has to be the blemish of the Keller ISD. Oh ya...and the traffic around here is miserable, the police do not enforce the school zones either.

If I could give this school no stars, I would. Teachers are mediocre. Have poor grammar and almost no teaching experience. Unfortunately I have no choice but to have my kids there or pay for private school. Teachers are neglectful, and seem not to care. One even told me she could not keep her eyes in all the children, while mine was being bullied in her class. One male teacher is known to sext other teachers while in school property, and to continously be on chat from his classroom computer. Another won't ever let you in her class while she is teaching, and another one takes off from the campus to run personal errands while on her conference hour. The principal is really sweet and seems concerned, but she is somewhat new as a principal. Art, P.E, music and other programs as well as the cafeteria food are avobe average. Hope they improve

LOVE this school and the teachers! All 3 of my kids go here. You really can't get better than this.

Posted August 10, 2010

My kids excelled in this school. It was a perfect fit. I moved from GA where the homework was brutal and the teachers were horrible. In less than a full school year at this school and my child has done a 180*. His grades went up and his reading level and math lever were a complete grade ahead and most importantly he wanted to go to school! I give a 4 star because there seems to be disorganization in the office, which drives me nuts!

Posted January 7, 2010

I agree with the parent who posted on October 7, this school doesn't seem to discipline problem students in a manner suitable to curbing their behavior for the better. Appears to be a trend and I'm getting my kid out of there as soon as possible.

wonderful school and friendly staff.


Posted November 11, 2009

This is a great school. Staff is very helpful.


Posted October 7, 2009

The teachers are very nice and willing to help. But my daughter wasn't very uncomfortable there. The bullying in the classroom and in the cafeteria wasn't dealt with to my liking. I understand there are many kids and so many teachers but bullying and harrassment seemed to be our major issues that never seemed to get better.
