Wonderful school but am concerned about some teachers. Our grandson said that he had done little other than color since the TAAKS test. Also would like to see grading system on the web site.

I like the small town feel, my son is not just a number here and we just moved into the district. The staff and facilities are great.

This is one of the best school my children have been in. The staff are all great, and have a wonderful teachers that really care about the kids. the school building itself is so clean and inviting for kids.

Moving around in the military, my child has been to several schools in the last seven years. I didn't feel that my child got the education she deserved from this school. There was also a very 'small town' feeling. It seemed that if the teachers didn't know the parents from growing up there, the child was treated differently. We will have to go back to Texas soon, but I will make sure my child doesn't go to school in Lampasas.
