Excellent school with great teachers. The school has a strong reputation for higher level learning and is considered one of the top elementary schools in Plano.

This school used to be one of the best till the new Principal came, she is uninvolved, doesn't know all the students, very indifferent, academic progress has slowed and there is not enough motivation from her. She hardly ever visits the classrooms, and is mostly missing from the campus. Teachers on the other hand, are wonderful, highly qualified and very caring. A lot of involvement and help from parents. The rest of the staff is great. If only, there was a better manager in a good Principal like the one before her !

Mathews is a fantastic school with amazing teachers! The staff really cares about the students. The parents are very involved. The students are challenged academically, and there are a number of advanced programs and afterschool activities to enhance the children's education.

This is an amazing school. I have had one child completly go thru it and another is in fifth grade and has been there since kindergarden. They are incredibly bright due to the Incredibly dedicated teachers. Fabulous PTA programs also. Very diverse school, all cultures represented here. TAKS scores are incredible, and the teachers care! I have a Adhd child and they have helped me tremendously with her. Same Principal and she is for real. All Teachers are A+++.

I think Matthews is a pretty good school for mainstream learning kids. For kids who learn differently, with dyslexia in particular, I would reconsider. Unfortunately Matthews does not follow the guidelines in the district's own 'Dyslexia Handbook'. The school s method of operation is to simply drag its feet in providing adequate help to these kids. Because this is such an affluent district with highly educated parents, most families in this position, realizing that time is so critical for overcoming Dyslexia and most learning differences, refuse to waste critical months and years fighting the system and thus choose private schools. There are several districts in the surrounding area, Allen being one, who use the proven Alpha Phonics reading program with Dyslexic students. We have been disapointed that a 'Blue Ribbon School' like Matthews does not offer an 'Exemplary Education' for all students. We would have settled for adequate.
