My son is currently attending Plain Elementary and we love it. His Pre-K teacher was engaging and set the tone for his school years. His kinder teacher last year was the BEST teacher ever. I almost hated to see my son move up. Her class was fun, exciting, and she was always ready to talk to me and help with my concerns. This year he is in 1st and his teacher is always ready to help, she responds to emails and notes, and had helped me find out if my son has a learning disability. I'm looking forward to him attending next year.
no lesson plans for parent volunteer of a Kinder class for the poor substitute. Really shocked, looking at other schools.
I think that Jim Plain is a great elementary school! My daughter is a kindergartener here and has had a wonderful first year of school. Her teacher is real enthusiastic about teaching and loves to see when the kids apply what she has taught throughout the year. My little one is very happy here. Thumbs up from me.
Jim Plain is an amazing elementary. It prepares students on an above grade level, which helps more than an average school. It is outstanding. An B at Jim Plain would become an A+ in other schools. If your a student in third grade, and get 85+ grades, in another district in the next grade level, those could be up tp 95% and above. I would recomend Jim Plain as a top educational school.
Jim Plain is an excellent school!!! My daughter has enjoyed k- 2nd grade with her wonderful teachers through the years. I believe the teachers and principals set goals with high expectations in mind for the future generation. What a friendly and dedicated bunch!!!
If you have a special needs child, find somewhere else. If your child has trouble with other children, good luck... Poor teachers and administration..
This is my sons first year at Plain. He is a 1st grader and transfered from another school district. I have been extremely happy and impressed with there staff.. esp his teacher. She has gone above and beyond to make him feel comfortable with this transistion to a new school.
My son is a first grader at Plain and loves it! The first grade teachers are wonderful and love the kids. My son's teacher goes above and beyond her call of duty. Great school!!!
My son is a kindergartener at Jim Plain and it has been a wonderful experience for our family. We always get positive feedback from the teachers and principals. They are quick to respond to any questions or comments.
This is our first year at Jim Plain and we really love it. It actually feels smaller than it is because the staff treat our family like they've known us forever. It was a hard transition for our fourth grader, but his teacher was extremely helpful. Mr. Koller gave us a tour of the school....how many assistant principals give tours of the school three weeks before school starts?! So friendly!
Awesome school, staff and students! This is our daughter's first year at Jim Plain and she absolutely loves it! The teachers are all very hands on. The school is beautiful and very safe. I have not had very many good experiences with my kids' schools in the past, so this is a refreshing change. My daughter has been to 4 elementary schools since she has started kindergarten and it hasn't been easy on her. I was leery about the 7 out of 10 that Jim Plain got but don't let that scare you. I don't think enough parents have reviewed this 'new' school. Plain deserves a 10 in my book!
Our son was recently diagnosed with autism, and while it's been the hardest time in our lives the staff and teachers have helped us tremendously. We are constantly amazed by the care given by everyone involved.
We moved here from out of state and are beyond thrilled with this school. My sons grades have improved even though the curriculum is more difficult than his previous school. His teacher is amazing, the faculty has been so welcoming and very positive! We don't have a single complaint. We were a little put off initially by the low rating on this site for the school when house hunting but soon realized that it's likely due to lack of information since the school is so new...don't let that scare you off because Jim Plain has been a great school for us!
I love everything about this school. The principals and teachers are fabulous! The teachers have high expectations for their students, and go above and beyond helping each child reach their goal. Walking into the school, I feel such a friendly welcome. Great atmosphere! Great teaching! Great learning!
We searched many schools and districts before deciding on this one. I will say the teachers and principal have exceeded our expectations. I have two children that go there and they love it. We couldn't be more happy with a school and the hands on dedicated approach to education!
Last year was the first year it was open and we moved there from PH in LISD. My boys loved it there, the teachers are all very nice and they did a great job. Looking forward to this upcoming year.
