Presidential Meadows Elementary School2

My son goes pre k there. As a deaf parent I wouldn't recommend any deaf parents to bring their kids to that school. They don't provide interpreters. Few staff were rude and make me bit uncomfortable. But as long he love this school that's all that matter.
I love this elementary school! The teachers are involved and trained very well. My child is excited to go to school everyday and she is being challenged with the curriculum. Overall the staff is friendly and very helpful and informative. They keep us parents updated on everything that is going on in the district.
Best school in manor. They have very high expectations of our children and it shows. It is the best learning atmosphere. My children are very happy. From administration, to custodial, to dietary, teachers, all staff are wonderful at pme. The eagles at pme soar!
The school is awesome! Mrs. Bowen's is doing a superb job! Her leadership is something the entire district should follow. Unfortunately, she has a lot of young teachers (experience) which cause some concerns with me. I m a little worried about the district as a whole. I think the entire district focuses too much on teaching to pass the TAKS. I would like to see better curriculum that evens out all core subjects and not just focus on the subject that will help the student excel on the TAKS for his/her grade level. If this school administrators, teachers, students, etc. could be in a better district, they would be the best in Central Texas.
I love the school, but not happy with the school district. In my opinion, there is not enough homework given to the children. Focus in the 3rd grade was given to the reading TAKS test and hardly any math. The following year, the kids are in the 4th grade with terrible math skills. Again, the focus is on passing the 4th. grade reading TAKS. Where again is the focus on math? I fear for the children in the 5th grade who will now have to pass a TAKS test for math they are hardly prepared to take. Ms. Bowens is great, but the teachers get somewhat of a failing grade. Someone needs to make sure that the kids curriculum includes not just TAKS related material, but all subjects. Go back to giving homework!
A superb school, indeed!!! I absolutely love Presidential Meadows Elementary School!! My son is in third grade and he has excelled already this year. This is due to patient teachers that are determined that my child succeed personally and academically. Honestly, I worry about him moving on to the Middle School. If I could move this staff through the grades along with my son, I would! I don't want anyone ruining what PME has done for him so far! Kudos to you all and keep up the good work. I'm behind you 110%! Anyone with anything negative to say must be miserable in general.
