I would definitely rate this school a10!!!! All the staff have smiles on their faces, are happy to be there and treat the children with love and kindness! When you walk through the door immediately you are greeted by the sweet staff. The principal is kind, sweet and caring and in all the years my 4 children have been there we haven't had a teacher we haven't loved!
This school should be at a 10 in my opinion. The principal and staff are all consistent in their approach to a well-rounded education for the kids. There is plenty of communication going from teachers to parents. The staff here tells the students they attend the BEST school in Midlothian and the kids really believe it. It's a very positive atmosphere. My children are in K and 1st and each teacher is available by email throughout the day. The PTO does a great job of putting together events/carnivals and the parents are pretty involved overall. I don't hesitate to address any issues with the Assistant Principal and I know it will be addressed timely.
God blessed me with two very different boys; one is in the gifted program and one has special needs. What I love about Baxter is how the staff works to make sure they are both successful. I know that I can not give these boys what they need on my own and Baxter is the 'village' that is helping me to raise they boys!
I have one student currently at Baxter and one that has moved on to middle school. We love the teachers and administrators at this wonderful school. The atmosphere is friendly and caring from the time you walk in the door. Big thanks to everyone who makes Baxter such a great school!
Our son has a disability. He is very capable of learning. It is sad to see how backwards Midlothian isd really is. We have experienced un-professional leadership from a school principal, administration, teachers, as a whole this district is unable to support the needs of my child. I want families to be aware of our experience and research to ensure your child's needs can in fact be met. What SOUNDS good is not at all what is praticed or implemented.
This is a wonderful neighborhood school Our student has received support and encouragement from the teachers, parents, and administrators. We have been at Baxter for 3 years now. The leadership at this school is positive, supportive, and this creates a warm and friendly environment.
The principals, teachers and all the people who work here are wonderful. I am suprised by the scores. My kids use to go to Longbranch and I like Baxter better. Maybe scores are not everything. My kids received commended performance on everything.
I have been very happy with my children's academics at TE Baxter. My son has gotten commended performance on three TAKS tests now (missing one or less) and my daugher who is in first grade has a grade equivalency of six grade, third month in her reading/comprehension! I was shocked and proud.
Great parent involvement, but the test scores are low. The school is in a neighborhood that is on the decline. It worries me that my son is going to this school (lowest scores in the district) so we are buying a new home to get out.
