To mrs. Cantu (3rd grade) ..thank u so much for doing all u can and your power for putting my son into the 504 program..it took alot of ur time to focus this. .but I really appreciate it..cus now tha he's in the 4th grade is doing so so much better..his grades range from C's to A's..instead of D's and F's..u really changed him..and his 4th grade teacher loves him and how well he is doing from last year or the the year before..she loves working with him and she has even made him teachers paper passer...so thank u so so much...

This school has awesome programs for children with learning disabilities. .the teachers are so freaking awesome. .I've had my son for 6 yrs in this school I've gotten to know half the staff and the maintenance stuff also..they are wonderful. .don't get me wrong there are a few bad apples of teachers tha really don't expect anything great for their students..but most want to see their students succeed and be great at wat they learned.. ..It took 4 years for us to get my son the help he needed just to be in a 504 program and a teacher to care and noticed that he was needed the help and the attention for understanding why he was not catching on or up..I thank that teacher for putting her time effort and dedication to put my son into the program that he so needed..his 3rd grade teacher is and always going to b the best teacher that I've known and my son that has really cared for him and his education. .this school is wonderful. .but we need more teachers to b more involved and also take their time to notice their students and attend to their learning problems if so they have difficulty in it..so they can get the resources to succeed in their education. .also the principal needs to be more caring understanding and more compassionate and friendly towards the students,parents and especially the students. .and she should let the parents be more involved in their children's education as much as they want and able to work with the teachers and progress..instead if thinking for her self and how the school will represent. ..so if u are looking for a good school and live on the south side of laredo this school is not the best but it is a great school wit friendly and caring staff........thank you mrs..cantu (3rd grade) for noticing and helping my son succeed in his education u never gave up on him or his learning and thank u for involving us in his education and also caring abt him and his feelings..

Excellent programs are being provided for Are students, especially in the computer lab. The availabitlity of art hardly exists! The school needs to provide more sports and music. Flag football is the only sport(extracurricular) activity I see being practiced after school. Parents are the ones in charge here. I believe this school is the only elementary with a mariachi group. This is awesome, but I wish I could see more students involved! Mr. Gonzalez, the music teacher, is the one in charge here! His group was highly recognized last year in San Antonio, Texas! I'm sure they will do it again! A yearbook group of people produced a nice looking yearbook in 05-06. It seems as though another one is in the works! There are many parents wishing to help out in the classrooms!
