Well , this school is a very cold place, my child is terrified of the music teacher, I been requesting a teacher conference for weeks and the teacher just call me in the phone, the principal I don't know if she is a shy person or she just don't like speak in public, because you never understand what she is saying when she speaks in front of an audience. She is kinda of rude. The office staff is not always helpful. I'm rating the school average because they're challenging my kid, but an school is not just academics.

I am thinking of changing my children to this school. It stoped me right away after reading the reviews because one of my children is in special program. Thank you those two parents!

This is a wonderful school with great teachers who really care for their students. My son has learned and improved a lot from his first Kindergarten,

This is our daughter's first year at PES. I have been very impressed overall. The only reason that I did not give the school 5 stars is their lack of resources for gifted & talented curriculum. The librarian is the teacher for that program and it only meets a short time each week. Although there are chances for other advanced curriculum outside of that program in math and reading. The school is very diverse which we really value and see the benefits already of our child being exposed to a wide range of economic and ethnic backgrounds. There are numerous avenues for parental involvement and the homework level seems okay thus far. My daugher takes pride in her school which I think is likely the best testament there can be. They don't seem to just "teach to the test" which can't be said for many other schools in the area. I would highly recommend PES to anyone looking to move to this general area. Bohl's Place is also a great, lesser known, quiet little neighborhood that feeds into PES that we adore.

Overall this is a great school, but I feel like it is a little too strict. My child has been enrolled for two years now and has had two great teachers and has learned a ton. The art and p.e. teacher seem great as well. I've seen the music teacher yelling at kids several times, so not a big fan of her. I do wish they would let the kids relax a bit and socialize more. I've eaten lunch up there a couple of times and see the lunch staff barking at the children to keep it down. Seriously, its lunch, let them socialize! The halls are very quiet too, teachers really keep these kids in line. Still, I suppose its better than having a school that is full of kids being bullies to other children or otherwise making the school a hostile place. I've found the homework to be reasonable, hopefully that persists into the upper grades. There is limited parent involvement at this school, which I think is due to it being an area where typically both parents work.

Teachers do not have any patients to teach struggling students. They are too eager to stick every child that does not live up to their expectation in (special Ed classes). They are too lazy to take the time to work with those students. Sometimes all it takes is just a little positive motivation and a little attention, for a child to do well. Shame on you Pflugerville Elementary School. I have also noticed that at this school, you must be on the in list of parents to be treated with any kind of respect by the office staff and especially, by the teachers. What ever happened to (the love of teaching and respect)?

In the few months my son has been in this school has been strenious. He comes home with hours of homework to do, teachers apparently have no patience when tutoring, and he gets alot of negative feedbacks. I wasn't even notified of my child failing in math until the day the progress report went home. He was doing well in the previous school and I don't understand how his grades dropped so dramatically in a 3 month period. The principal was unsympathetic and insisted the teachers were in the right? This school needs 2 focus more on 'positive' feedbacks & communication with the children and less on the drama (walking away from my child when he doesn't understand a math problem) & comments made to them (they should know kids repeat what they hear). I suggest any parent with a issues should talk w/the Superintendent's office 2 resolve b4 it's 2late

I think overall the staff is great, but like another parent said...The homework is a little much...And the pressure to pass the current TAKS test is really ridiculous, it gave my child a migraine and she is 9, they do not need that kind of stress at this age!!

We have had 3 principals in 3 years, and many times I feel like I'm educating my own children. I wish there wasn't so much homework. It takes hours to finish, check homework, and sign the myriad of forms and folders they send home. Some of the teachers are great, and others...not so great. The lunch room doubles as the auditorium, so there is never enough seating. Although with no child left behind, there aren't many performances to see now.
