I could not be more happier. my son is 4th year in razor now. every single year, the home class teacher was very caring one. they are really interested in improve students. my son told me many stories how some trouble kids improved dramatically. I don't involve much in my son's learning, but he is still doing great. all because the teachers tireless effort. strongly recommend this school.

This is an awesome school. This is my child's second year at the school, and we love it. The entire staff is so friendly and willing to help my child excel. Any concern brought to a teacher, art teacher, librarian, principal, or counselor was addressed, no matter how minor the concern. My child lives in an apartment, and has test scores above the chart. So whoever says theses kids are labeled as apartments kids has no idea what they are talking about. We love Rasor! Thanks Rasor staff for all you do in fostering a great learning environment and working hard with each child to ensure they are successful.

This is an excellent school. Most every teacher and staff member that is here show a genuine care for and attention to the student. My daughter absolutely loves it here. Mr. Pruitt knows her by name and many of the teachers in classes she's never been in know her as well. Her teachers have always shown care in making sure she is ahead of where the average is. I've seen a couple reviews about "Chase Oaks" and lower track and that's not even the case. We don't live in Chase Oaks and my girl is at the top of her class. Exceptional School.

Not a good school. Teachers are not engaged and they do not try to help the students. I don't recommend this school.

My kids had a great year 2013-14. My 2nd grader's scores went from below average to top of the class with the support of Ms. Cannon. My reserved 1st grader, is strong academically, but started out cautious in making friends and interacting with others. Mrs. Roseburg took each of her concerns seriously and encouraged her right out of her shell. Ms. Yates, the counselor, was there every step of the way following up as needed. After a minor incident on the school bus the Asst Principal, Dr. Brehner called me share how they would deal with the trouble-maker. The Principal, Mr. Pruitt, is so engaged with each student and activity, knows my kids' names. I commend all the staff and him for his excellent leadership. My kids scores are higher and they are actually excited about starting a new year! Great experience for me too!

If you do not live in Chase Oaks or Sunset Creek, your child will be labeled and placed in a lower education track; PISD uses a tracking system to teach their students. If your child lives in an apartment, they will placed in alternative or special education. The teachers actually call them "apartment kids". I live in Chase Oaks and I think it is amusing how these parents love to have their children coddled.

My kids have excelled beyond and because of their Rasor education. THe teachers are wonderful; the staff all great. Rasor is a great melting pot of kids that reflects the real world. This school has strong leadership and I am an involved parent who is proud my kids go here and of the education they are getting.

I have been so impressed with Rasor! The principal knows the kids by name and greets them as they enter the school! This is an everyday occurence, not just once in a while. The teachers really care about their students and how well they are succeeding. After recently moving to another state, I miss the "family" of Rasor and how cared for my son felt there. The test scores continue to improve and there are many opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's education. Rasor is a great partner in educating our kids!

I am a teacher at Rasor and am very involved with all of the students as well as our amazing PTA. I think the students here are getting a great education and have many opportunities to develop relationships with staff and students as well as building their own character and confidence. Our diversity is welcomed and is in accord with reality. I enjoy it here and will stay until I retire, which won't be anytime soon. For those parents that were unhappy here, I hope you find what you are looking for. For those parents trying to find a great school, come and visit!

If your child has special needs don't send to this school. One of the teacher has a degree Kinesiology & Sports Studies and djs on the side. His face book page is open for anyone to see even children, and has inappropriate songs and language for all to see. Why would a educational institution hire someone like this to help our special needs children?

We only have one child and he is in K so have no basis of comparison to other schools, but our little one likes it there and feels really comfortable at this school and that is what is important. I suppose based upon the 2012 6/10 rating, Rasor doesn't test well but our child comes home really energized about what he has learned that day and in my book that counts for a lot. The Pasar after school program is also excellent, our child sometimes is upset when we pick him up too early because he is having so much fun. It is pretty racially diverse and near apartments so you know. But, we did buy a home nearby the school and plan to keep him in Rasor for duration of elementary. Nice work Rasor staff & thanks.

I'm a student that just graduated 5th grade at Rasor. I loved it!! Best school ever! The teachers are great, they DO discipline but not too harshly. I learn everyday and the kids are great. I feel happy at school and that's what it's all about, learning and happiness for children.

Just look at the test scores that is all I need to see. Especially Math. Obviously the kids came in below state average - and then at each grade level the improvements are marked. The improvements at the grade levels says a lot _ the teachers are doing their jobs!!!

This school is unbelievalbe! The staff is professional and hard working. The fact that this school has 46% of its kids on reduced lunch, over half of its students coming from multi family housing, many single parents and the children's scores keep going up and up! Anyone with a recent bad experience at Rasor should probly look in the mirror and see what they could of done to improve the experience.

I can't believe the positive ratings for this school. I transferred my child to this school 2 years ago and can't wait until the school year is over to get him out of this school I am moving out of this school's are for that sole purpose. Unprofessional staff, discipline issues , poorly trained teachers. PACE program is the only positive at this school, Ms. McKinney is an exception to the staff.

We just moved here. I was so impressed with the level of professionalsm at the school, which includes very friendly staff who were as welcoming to us as they were to returning students. The level of expectations for learning is high, and I see a lot of supporting stucture underneath to make it happen. Great classroom resources, broad level of experience in the teaching teams. I am very pleased to send my child to this school.

Rasor is a great school. The pace program, the after school writing club and the great teachers makes this school ideal for my kids. There are occasional discipline issues though, which I guess can be found in most schools.

Rasor is a wonderful school! The teaachers are very dedicated and top- notch. Rasor has great after school clubs and other off campus activities that really enhance the children's learning experience. I'm very pleased with the school and happy to have my children go here.
