Kindergarten classes are only half-day despite Lewisville's large and growing property tax base. There are 5 Kindergarten classes and 7 first grade classes, and one 'developmental first grade' designed for kids that do not have the skill set to move up from kindergarten to first grade. It concerns me greatly that there is an entire classroom full of children that attend kindergarten here and are not ready for the next level? That's 20% of the kids attending this kindergarten! Also, classes are at or near the state maximum teacher:student ratio. For K-5, there are 700 children in this single school. The school is located directly across the street from a busy truck depot, which large tractor-trailer (including the super-sized 53' trailers) coming and going at all hours of the day and night. Most train traffic is during daylight hours, however, this does coincide with school hours, interrupting class activities with very, very loud noise.
