My child has attended this school for four years and I do agree that parental involvement needs to improve. However, parents can not get involved unless the school makes it possible, and this school needs a lot of work to get that done. Personally I have seen parents excluded from participation because they speak their minds, and not in a negative way. This school claims transparency, yet when a parent asks about why the school runs out of paper for its teachers, the doors are closed. The people that work here are fabulous, but I personally think administration could use a little fine tuning.
My son attends first grade and loves his school. I think there needs to be more parent involvment. This is a school not a babbysitter. My son is in the dual language program and loves spanish. It sounds to me like some parents want the school to be a babysitter...no, your child goes here to learn. There are excellent staff from the front office to custodial staff.
Science Hall seems to be a great school depending on your child. Some of the teachers are fantastic and we have been so pleased with them. Other teachers are uninvolved and do not enjoy their job. Over all its a decent school. I don't absolutely LOVE it, but its not the worst out there either.
My son attended this school for three years and everyday he would complain about the teacher picking on him and when other students did things to him, the teacher wouldn't do anything. I personally do not like this school. The teachers were not caring, and did not teach my son the things he needed to learn for the grades he was in. He is now attending a better school, still in Hays County and still in Kyle, Rosalio Tobias International Elementary School. Go Tobias!
lack of leadership, teachers always asking for more supplies from the kids, teachers do not appear very happy. Control of class seems to be a problem. Looking to move out soon!
I now drive my child to school in Austin. I was not satisfied with the schools. There are low standards. However if you want your child to be in the dual language program (Spanish/English) you will be pleased.
My daughter has been at Science Hall for two years already, she is now in 1st grade and I love it, it's beautiful, BIG, looks like a middle school. Great staff that I know of so far,so good!I highly recomend it! Jennifer
It is a great and the best school ever! I absolute love this special school.
