Goodwin Frazier Elementary School 5

Goodwin Frazier is an amazing school! The principal, Ms. Caruso is only in her second year and she has already made some fantastic changes. I love the fact that the class sizes are small. (16 in my son's 3rd grade class.) GFES is #1 in Comal ISD in Achievement Index for elementary schools. YES, number one! Many educators agree this is the best Index to rate a school's success. The environment is nurturing and empowering. The teachers and staff are amazing and it is clear they love all of the kids. I was nervous about moving my child from a private school two years ago. I'm so happy that I did. Not only does my child have a blast at school, but he has teachers who adore him and he has a diverse group of friends all while soaring academically. If you want your child to be inspired and experience different cultures reflective of the global society we live in, pick GFES. You won't regret it!

In the school year of 2014/2015 GFES welcomed a new principal, Carolyn Caruso. The past two years have been an amazing collaboration of parent involvement and student success driven by the amazing teaching staff at GFES. Please take note of the exceptional Art, Music, Library and P.E. departments!! Thank you, Carolyn, for encouraging parental involvement.

I've had two children attend kindergarten at GFES.....WOW! I was impressed with my sons' teacher AND the entire team. For other grades, if you are lucky enough to get Mrs. Peters...your child will remember her always.

There is a balance. This is elementary! I think there is a good balance between reinforcement and family time.

I've seen data that shows the growth GFES students achieve each year (it is the best in Comal ISD). Personally, my two sons, are reading 2-3 grade levels above their grade!!!

The student population at GFES is very diverse, which naturally encourages children to be compassionate, understanding, and genuine human beings. Our students embody empathy.

Because it is a Title I school, there are many opportunities to help your neighbor. Kids helping kids is awesome to watch!
