This school is absolutely more concerned with tucking in shirts and gum chewing than elevating a child. The principal has no business being in charge of any childs education or self worth. When approached with a complaint she is patronizing and disrespectful of parental opinions. The assistant principal, which is great, needs to be left in charge of any discipline and dealing with children and parents. The current principal has no discernment when it comes to discipline, good children are punished along with children misbehaving, evidently due to her not having the time to identify the actual problem children. This behavior only serves to destroy a good kids motivation.

I have three special needs kids who have attended Clearfork as well as a nephew I am raising. In the three years since we moved here, I have been pleased. Things have not always been perfect, however, the principal has always had an open door policy for parents. Problems have always been solved quickly and always to my satisfaction. The extracurricular activities are abundant and all of the children are encouraged to participate. They even make time for most of them during school hours so that parents do not have to worry about transportation. I would highly recommend this school to everyone, however, I'm impressed with the way handle the special needs population.

My son attended Oak Hill Elementary (Austin) for Pre-K through first grade. It wasn't until he started at Clear Fork in second grade that his teacher, Mrs. Homann, recognized that he is dyslexic. He was also placed in the Talented and Gifted program. All of his teachers seem to be interested in him not only as a student, but as an individual with unique needs and talents. At the end of the year, I received a form asking what sort of teacher I thought would work best with my son. His third grade teacher (Mrs. Spencer) is also a perfect fit. Additionally, the after school program is far and away superior to the one offered in Austin--no comparison.

This school and school district is more focused on dress code that is very unclear than education. I'm looking to put my boys in private school.

Out of four teachers at Clearfork, my kid had a good experience with only one. I've been told I can't transfer him out of the district and they won't change his classroom. Clearfork has a nasty reputation for causing an enthusiastic learner to become apathetic and rebellious towards his education. If I had my way, every person there would be fired, except for one. I am not the only parent that feels this way about the school. Ask around. Do your research. Do not enter your kid into this school if you can help it. Signed, Very Angry Mother
