Terrible teachers! I would never get the notes from the teacher about report card night. Teacher would never cooperate with parents, they don't have patience with students. They take so much pride on those kids that are talented, but with those that struggle and really need help can care less. We really need to battle the school in order to get the help for our kids with special needs. the school misdiagnosed our kid and denied him the help

Teachers and administration are top quality. This school had the best elementary TAKS scores and best attendance rate. All about the kids!


Posted May 30, 2007

They work hard to have the highest rate of attendance and test scores. From moving to this area and having my child start at this school half way thru. He has grown past everyone's expectations. Both of my children love going to school. Staff is wonderful. The only thing that is not so good is we as the parent don't get notes sent home until the day before an activity at school. We as the parent need a better way to get this information. We need a better heads up on future activities.
