Ive had nothing but trouble since we moved here! Since both of my children transfered here with IEP's, I was informed that I had to wait unitl they taled with the special ed to enroll them. This took two weeks, they started school and still havent recieved special services, I was just informed today that they need more info from special ed from their old school (which is already closed) before they could go to summer school,even though they have full and current IEP's. They do not make transitions easy for the child or parent,Im thinking about tranfering them already!

I am very pleased with the atmosphere at Pershing Park. It is clear that the administration, teachers and aides have the best interest of the children at heart. My daughters have both had qualified, eager teachers that work hard for my kids' success.

We have had problem after problem with the administration and front office since school started--to the point we have withdrawn them. I was told that parents were not permitted in the building before school because it was a safety issue. I had tried to give them my ID to sign in when told this. It took getting the principal involved just to walk my child to her new class. In the morning before school starts, the kids who don't eat breakfast there are sent to the hallway where their classes are. They are then parked in front of a TV 2 days a week. When my son pulled out a book to read he was told that he was not allowed to read during the video.

My husband and I have been thoroughly disappointed with this school. Our son has been on the Honor Roll two times this year and last which is great. We don't like the fact they teach the TASK test if they don't pass it doesn't matter if your child is an Honor Roll Student & makes great grades he/she fails and can't move to the next grade.

My husband and I purchased a home here in 2006. Through all my research my children were suppose to attend Iduma Elementary instead of Pershing Park. Then of course I find out the zones changed and I was not pleased that my children had to attend Pershing Park. My daughters teachers are very supportive and they work well together. My son has ADD so he's struggled with academics all his life. I requested he be tested for a learning disability and the results came back that he was an average student with no disabilities. Even his teacher was shocked at the results! All I can do is stay on top of the staff and his teachers to make sure he gets the education he deserves because if I don't he'll just fall through the cracks.

Academic programs are OK....same as you can get anywhere in Texas, no better, no worse. There are extracurricular activities, but would like to see more sports. During PE, kids have too much 'down time' where they sit in the rocks and get into trouble because they are bored. Communication between teachers of different subjects needs to be better.
