I have 3 children who attend Startzville Elementary. I have seen this school improve 100% over the last 2 years. My children are thriving with the academic programs and extra curricular activities offered. If ever I have had a problem it has been addressed and corrected if necessary. No school is perfect, but I can definitely say that the teachers and principal care about these students and do whatever they can to encourage success and good character. I look forward to the new test scores to be published so all of their hard work can be acknowledged. I know that a lot of people do not like the emphasis on the testing. The public schools have no choice but to get the students prepared to take the tests. If a parent is not happy with how things are going for their child let the school know.

I can't understand why all these parents think this is such a great school. Sure there are programs that make the school appear progressive (Wii Fitness Lab, Garden Center - which my son was excited about however the school dropped the ball and wouldn't let the kids do anything because someone from the Master Gardeners never showed up), but this is all just fluff! Academically, students here are suffering, just look at the standardized test scores. The teachers spend so much time (far too much in my opinion) trying to prepare students for these tests and they still do extremely poorly. My son has been here 2-5th grade and at first the school seemed good, but I think it's because it's new and they have all this technology and the "fluff" that gives the appearance of a good school, but they're not making our kids smarter. I feel my son is extremely unprepared for middle school and his teachers don't seem concerned in the least. At the beginning of the school year parents provide all school supplies for the class, not just your child and (in 5th grade) students are made to buy the supplies back with school $. The "good" supplies parents buy - the teachers keep those for their use.

We miss this school so much ! I have a 10 year old, 8 year old twins, and a 7 year old and this was such a positive school. My children were never bullied here unlike the school we currently attend. An awesome parent resource center and very caring Teachers.

Startzville Elementary is a wonderful school. The student to teacher ratio is quite balanced in each classroom. My child had 18 students to the 1 teacher. I loved the approach that was given to my child of making learning fun. It's a great way to start a child 'off on the right foot.' Never once did I hear a complaint on having to do so much homework, and by the time summer came a long we were at Walmart looking for 'School Zone' activity books. A child wanting to learn more is a significant sign that they are being taught education is important.

My children are in fourth and first grades and it's been another GREAT YEAR at Startzville Elementary! My children are sad when summer gets here because they love school. The teachers and Principal are wonderful, they think outside the box and are dedicated to the students. Join the PTA, get involved and be a part of your childs school.

Startzville Elementary is a great school. For a Title I school, the students receive so many additional learning opportunities unique to any other school in our district. There is a learning garden in the works, a Wii Fitness lab, a literacy lab and a learning lab. The faculty is out of this world and you can tell when you walk in the school building that everyone wants to be there. There is a new Parent Resource Center that is helping to promote family/parent involvement and offers a wide variety of not only educational, parenting and informational classes or workshops but fun ones as well that gets parents engaged and building that social network within the school. The PTA has over the last two years become AWESOME and does a lot for the school. They hold movie nights, reading nights, carnivals, and a lot of other opportunities to get involved.

This school is fantastic. They do offer music, gifted and talented, art, etc. The teachers are fantastic and the administration and support staff is wonderful. I am thrilled with the high standards. I have children that are thriving and excelling. Their teachers truly care about them. I have a first grader and a third grader.

My oldest girl has been attending this school for the 2nd year, she's in 3rd Grade now. She loves the school and teacher. My youngest just started Kindergarten and absoluately loves her teacher and going to school, that is a good sign for a parent!

My daughter started out 1st grade below grade level and because of her teacher and extra effort provided by the school - she was above grade level by the end of the year. In second grade she made all A's, and her teacher was awesome. I do agree that there should be more extracurricular activities, BUT they are great about informing us of activities available in the community!

Startzville Elementary is pretty good. The school-wide technology program is top-rate. Students begin in kindergarten learning keyboarding and data analysis. The Gifted and Talented teacher teaches a science lab for all students. Even the youngest students (kinder) do experiments in light, sound, energy, etc. The older students are involved in contests using Newton's Laws of Physics. Most teachers are trained in differentiation of subject matter. My child, whose been at the school (formerly Mountain Valley) for 3 years, has had wonderful teachers who teach outside of the normal 'TAKS teaching'. They truly strive to find a way to reach every student and make learning fun.

I happen to think that Startzville Elementary is a pretty ok school for a public school. They have great teachers. An awesome PTA, and a wonderful new facility. There are also plans for some exciting new things next year. Please parents don't hesitate to ask what is going on and tell the schoo what you would like to see for it, they can't add to the already wonderful programs if they do not know that there is a demand for it!! Be involved!
