I am SHOCKED by some of these reviews, especially for special needs kids! I can't say enough great things about this school! This has been my daughter's first year at this school (she is in second grade) My daughter is on the autism spectrum and gets such great care by so many! The principal is the best I have EVER seen and my daughter's teachers have been fantastic! It was wonderful to finally have teachers believe in my daughter and push her to her potential! She was even accepted to be in the gifted and talented program next year. This is the first school to to not only meet her needs but to exceed every expectation I could ever have! I can't wait for my other child to start kindergarten there next year! Out of any school we've ever attended this one rates a 20 out of 10!

The personal in the office are so rough. If your child need special education, PLEASE don't register in this school; you need to fight with the for the needs of the child. One of the teacher tell me, wao how many kids need help and if there parents don't know, don't looking for help, so there's children get struggling and only need an evaluation. They need teachers that take care of them. It not a dangerous school, but it not a good school for special kids.

We are very disappointed in this school! While the Principal and most of the teachers are great, some of the teachers are not. And it only takes a few bad apples as they say. This is especially true of the Special Education department. It all depends on who your child is assigned to. Very disappointing!

My daughter attended this school from 1st grade through 5th grade. I absolutely loved it here! The principal, Jennifer Lucas is amazing and really cares about her students and staff. The teachers were great and worked hard to make sure the students were not only learning, but retaining their education. The assistant principal, Amie Schultze plays a huge role in the students' educational success. My daughter has learning disabilities and this school played a vital role in her success of overcoming and handling her disabilities. The assistant principal, Amie was always by her side to ensure she was learning comfortably and had the resources she needed. This school is also very good at eliminating bullies! Bullying is not tolerated here and the principal personally takes care of the matter. I couldn't be more pleased with Gattis Elem and miss it very much since my daughter moved on to the 6th grade!

Gattis has a great atmosphere. It feels like a family. We have so many parents that are committed and supportive. Our administrators go out of their way to know and relate to the students. *Be sure to notice the dates when you browse comments. I noticed several are quite a few years ago.

My daughter went to this school and I am not happy with it at all. I am glad that this year she doesn't have to come back there. The principal is great but for one little thing she will change completely with you. The assistant to the principal treat you like you are dumb. The only great staff there are the librarians, kudos to them for their great job! So disappointed with the teacher. Instead of look for solutions to make the kids more engage she will separate them from the group. Never got a good comment towards my daughter who in her old school was one of the best kids. First week in other school and I already receiving great feedback from her teacher. I am glad that we are in a new school this year.

I love Gattis! Mrs. Lucas the principal is so caring and engaged with all the students and parents. The school counselors are wonderful. My daughter had a problem with bullies and everyone from her teacher on up helped to stop the problem. We have been with the school 4 years now and I still smile every time I walk through the doors!! Both my kids just LOVE it here!!

Gattis is a great school. Mrs. Thomas is a wonderful teacher. My son is a second grader here and he excels so fast in her class. Ms. Lucas, the principal, is wonderful. She cares so much for the kids and the kids love her. I love Gattis--it feels like home. The staff is wonderful, caring, and loving. I would send any kid to this school--it's where you can count on how your kid can be a wonderful and knowledgable citizen.

This is not a good school to send your special needs kids to. The special ed process is a nightmare and the school is unwilling to listen to any requests from parents. If you have special needs kids as I do, I do not recommend sending them to Gattis.

My child attends Gattis and has a special need/disability. This school has been a huge disappointment. They made the special education process a nightmare.

We moved from Arizona to Texas 6 months ago. My son is in the 2nd grade at Gattis and has learned more in the last 6 months there than in Arizona. They have wonderful teachers who care about the students. My son was having some trouble in Math and Reading. By the end of the school year he was doing so much better, and I would have to thank the teachers for this. They go over and beyond. This school cares about there students and it shows. And I love the involvement all the parent have with the kids, its great. I couldn't have asked for a better school.

Academic excellence is encouraged with an honor roll awards systems. Health and fitness is encouraged with an afterschool fitness club. Many other extracurricular activities are availible at Gattis. Parent participation is very high @ Gattis because of the welcoming and friendly attitude of the Gattis staff.

My children have attended Gattis Elementary School for 2 years. What really struck me as positive about Gattis Elementary School is the Prinicipal (Mrs. Lucas). She can frequently be seen in front of the school waiting with the children. Whether helping a child find their way to class, or cleaning up a scraped knee, she is always hands-on with the kids. Mrs. Lucas chooses not to hide in the office and delegate, but interacts directly with the children. My son says he likes Mrs. Lucas because 'She is funny.' Last year (2004-2005) my children really loved the music teacher (Mr. Touche). The music performance was first rate. The teachers also go the extra mile. When my son developed some behavioral problems, his teacher agreed to give us a daily report on his conduct, so we could address his behavior that night. Most of all, my children are happy there.
