Father of kids that have been going since 2005 and still have one in the 3rd grade. Teachers and admins are great. Parents are welcome to participate but don't 67% of School is economically disadvantaged. Seems to attract some really caring teachers. Good to see children of teachers now teaching there. Strong leadership in Principle and 2 Assistant Principles and Staff.

The teachers are great, and the office staff, administration, and principal are all very committed to the kids. Some children may struggle with the Taks test, but overall, we are very pleased with Post.

I found this school to be very good. The class sizes are small, and the children get plenty of instruction.

This school is very unfriendly to parents and students alike. There is nothing for the students outside of class and parents are not welcome. If I had a choice my children would not attend this school. TAKS takes priority over everything.
