We have all 3 kids at Christie for 3 yrs now and we love the school. Our kids love going to school each day. The teachers and staff are friendly and caring. We look forward to seeing the wonderful changes coming to Christie. We know our kids will be excited to experience the new program Learning Commons. The principal Mr. Steele and his staff of awesome teachers are truly dedicated to making sure every child at Christie succeeds. Please don't let the outdated reviews scare you. Give your child the best learning experience here at Christie Elementary....you will be very impressed!

I can't say enough good thigs about Christie. This is my son's third year here, and our family is very pleased. Members of staff whome I've been in contact with are very caring, and I'm very impressed wit the principal's vision (he was assistant principal for the past two years). There is an emphasis on hands-on learning and on the kids themselves, not just test scores. Mr. Steele is very involved and energetic, and his enthusiasm is contagious. My husband and I are very fortunate to be pretty involved, and the PTA is trying to increase parental involvement.

These reviews are very outdated. We've been at Christie for 3 years and I can't say I understand why anyone would want to transfer out. I've been impressed with the positive attitudes of every single teacher and staff member I've come in contact with. The man who's been our assistant principle, is now the new principle this year. He is very open and transparent with the parents. Every teacher has a blog so the parents can know what their kids have been working on in class. Some will say, "but it's a Title 1 school..." and imply that our kids will be at a learning disadvantage because of that. However, BECAUSE we are Title 1 we are able to have more specialists, and more funding for programs that other schools don't get. One of the most awesome examples of this is the new "Learning Commons" in our library which has all sorts of robotics, engineering, drama, and technology-rich problem solving collaborative spaces for more hands on learning opportunities. We are the first school in PISD to have this kind of enrichment space and everyone is super excited about it! If you are moving into the area, come visit the school before you make your decision.

My wife and I are actively engaged in our kids education, and we've found the staff and teachers at Christie to be exemplary. You can tell they really care, and my only complaint would be that they over communicate to the parents. I am grateful for our sons teacher, and the leadership at Christie.

The front office staff does no good being there. There is no organization, no service, and lack of consideration. I am very disappointed on how the morning front office is operated. Not only do they take a very long time to help you; they act very condensending and abrupt. On the good note, my son's teacher is WONDERFUL. The contrast of her excellent effect on my son is great! It's a shame that the office staff can not reflect the outstanding teachers.

We are excited for the start of another school year. Last year the staff, along with PTA brought the Rachel's Challenge program to campus and it has made a huge diffference in compassion, acts of kindness, etc with all of the students and staff. I just was told by another parent that the campus met AYP for the 2011-2012 school year, which takes into consideration the state mandated testing and is part of "No child left behind". This is a great accomplishment. Looking forward to another school year.

I'm a Christie parent and involved with the PTA. I also volunteer at the school and I haven't seen any behavioral problems that aren't common to any elementary school. I do think the school is crowded and has a larger than average (for Plano) share of students with limited English or economically challenged backgrounds which strains academics and has caused the average test results to drop over the past couple of years. The gifted and talented program is practically non-existent - that's my biggest complaint. The PTA is one of the most involved I've worked with with lots of programs for the kids and parents.

This is not a great school by any means. We actually moved our kids from this campus to another when we could get nowhere with the principal there. It seems to me that the kids are the ones running this school, not the principal! There is a definate lack of dicipline at Christie and I think that the kids know that they can do bad things and get away with it without getting in trouble. Maybe with a stronger/ firmer leadership team this school could be much better for the kids, but we didn't have time to wait for that to happen. FYI. The new school is further, but we are very happy with our decision to move our kids from Christie.

We are new to this school this year and it is leaps and bounds beyond our expectations. This campus has had a rough time, but with the principal in her second year here, there is stable leadership, the teachers are happy to be at school. My kids are learning so much and look forward to each school day. All students are treated with respect and dignity. Parents are welcomed into the building.

My daughter goes to this school and I have been extremely pleased with the teachers and programs available to the students. We are very happy to be Christie cubs!

This school has excellent teachers, great staff and great administrators who all work together with the PTA to make the school great for all kids. After 5 years of being academically acceptable, this school is a recognized school this year. Great job Christie!


Posted October 23, 2008

I agree that this school is bad! I switched schools after one year and couldn't be happier that I did. There are some really good teachers there who unfortunately are stuck at a bad school, with a poor leader (principal) and kids with behavioral issues. Change schools-you'll be glad you did!

My child attends this school and has learned a lot this year. I am pleased with his achievements. I think the teachers are doing a good job but I am concerned about discipline. The staff tries very hard to discipline and send a chart home daily so parents know if their child caused any problems. I do believe there are many well behaved children there. It is up to parents to follow up and work with the teachers on discipline. I see the teachers daily speaking briefly with parents in the pickup lines. The think the discipline problems stem from home life. We have decided to change to another school in Plano.

The entire vibe at the school is very negative. It's rare to find a faculty member that doesn't have a scowl on their face. The front office is inexcusable rude and downright hostile, to the point where they don't even acknowledge your presence, if you're unfortunate enough to have to walk in there. Every other parent I've talked to says the same. I truly believe this bad behavior has affected the rest of the faculty. I have to go up there today and I am dreading the hostile third degree I'm going to be confronted with when I walk in. It's so bad that I am hoping to transfer my son to another school in the district.

The principal highly promotes academic and education for this school. My child has learned so much this year and it is only half way throught the school year. The teachers are great, and I know that over the next 8 years we will enjoy it just as much. I want to thank everyone at Christe for all they do for our kids.

This school has tons of behaviorial issues. Too many bad kids and not enough emphasis on academics. Both my kids are advanced and their learning has been compromised because of other issues. Security issues as well-Not a good school if you care about your childs well being and learning;some good teachers, but they are limited to dealing with all issues.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 5, 2006

I have mixed feelings for this school. My child is in the advanced class but this is the last year they will have this advanced class. I feel they are putting the advanced kids in the with average kids to help in their behavior problems. Which there are a lot of kids with behavior problems. That is the teachers responsibility to deal with those kids - not the kids to fix the problem. My child's education has been good here but I worry about my younger kids' education at this school. That is part why we are moving school districts.

My daughter is in 4th grade at Christie Elementary. She loves it, and so do I. I have had to discuss some things concerning my daughter with the principal, who was extremely understanding, and very willing to help and work with me for the betterment of my daughter's education. She was very kind, and wanted to better understand what was going on to further her understanding. I really appreciated that. Her teacher is excellent, and just as willing to help and work with me also. My daughter is doing wonderfully this year, and I think that Christie and the staff there has a lot to do with that! Excellent school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
