My son attended in the 2nd and 3rd grade and has been bullied and when he told me and I told called the principal I was told, "well he should have told when it happened." The teacher seem to want the children to be medicated. Some of the notes home i have gotten are your child talked during lunch. He talked during restroom break. I am expecting a note to say he played at recess, but have yet to recieve that one. I would recommened enrolling in a different school district for elementary.

My son is gong to be in the first grade as of 2005 school year. I really liked the fact that the teachers and staff went out of thier way to help us ease into a transtion last year. I was very delighted with the over all friendliness of the school. The kindergarten class my child was in had lots of interesting activities fr the children to do. The parents are encouraged to ask questions and to be involved as much as possible with the activities the children perform.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
