My boys love it and I'm very proud to say my twin boys attend this school. It's a fairly new school so there's a great need for parents to get involved. I feel connected to the teachers and office staff and have a great deal of confidence in them to teach and instruct my kids in their education.

I am a parent interested in finding out more information regarding this school that my 4year old might ultimately be attending.

the 4th grade teachers here are even worse than the 3rd grade teachers. apparently, the math teachers are more concerned with cute little "strategies" to teach multiplication and division than just teaching them how to do it in the first place. i have had to teach my kid how to multiply and divide at home all over again because the "strategies" were to confusing and she never got the correct answers on her homework. now she has a good grasp of how to do multiplication and division problems after i told her to ignore these "strategies" and do it correctly. something else i had to teach her at home after school was her spelling words. each week my kid would bring home this list of "activities" related to spelling words like, pouring salt or sugar on a plate and spelling her words, writing words in the air with a parent, and then jumbling up the letters in a word. what? then each day the student was supposed to get a parent to sign off that it was completed. i signed off on it but she never did the "activities". i had her write the words 10 times and then she spelled the words as i read them off. her report card was a 100 for spelling after i started teaching her the words every week.

The only complaint I've ever had is with the pick up/drop-off line in the mornings/afternoon. The ladies in the office could use an attitude adjustment every now and then also, but other than that my children and I have had a positive experience. I'd have to say Miss Liebsle (K) and Mrs. Brown (1st) made my kids' school life an absolute blast!

The good thing about this school are the teachers. Most are very caring and concerned about student success. The ladies at the front desks are not friendly and neither is principal.

My children have been to 4 different schools in the last 5 years, due to us moving around. I have one child who is 'normal', and one who has severe ADHD and other emotional and educational disabilities. We have been looked over with her disabilities in all other schools but this one. They've taken her from hating school, barely able to read, and socially inept, to a child who loves school, is doing so well in class, has pride in herself, and is a child that I never expected to get. Her teacher, Mrs. Strickler, has had her for two years now, as we held her back last year to be able to work on her skills. She is in constant communication with me, and is one of the best teachers I have ever known. She gives constant praise, builds up all of her students, and loves each of her students with all of her heart. My other daughter struggles in math, and her teacher has a math lab that she does with the parents monthly to keep us 'in the know', which is so very helpful. The principal is very involved, as are the counselors. I absolutely love this school and will recommend it always! This school is amazing!

My son absolutely loved this school... Mrs. Miller was the best teacher he could have had... I heard she rightfully got 'Teacher of the Year' award for the 2011-2012 school year... He had his issues like all kids, but she always knew how to get his best behavior out of him... We will miss her as we are moving away... He even enjoyed the women in the ESD (extended school day) Program... The only problem I ever saw was the parents not paying attention to the crossing guard, teachers, much less the kids walking to and from school... It wasn't for a lack of effort on the teachers part... We all did what we could to get the Lewisville PD out there, but they couldn't do much bc when ppl see a cop car they are on their best till they're gone...

Horrible ,, elementary programs lots of trasnfers as all good kids move to Castle Hills ,, I would suggests Plano,Frisco, Arlington or Coppell ISD.


Posted October 19, 2011

This school is totally disorganized, chaotic and behind any other school in the area as far as what they are teaching at each grade level... I have not talked to a single parent that was happy with this school... The district as a whole has horrible allergy programs and I don't think anyone has been educated on how to handle this situation... So glad our kids are not in this school anymore, We have never made a better decision than to transfer districts!!
