We have lived in the Rowlett area for many years. We moved over the district line and thought it was a great move into RISD. The experience has been awful and very disappointing. My son's teacher is NEVER in class and always has a substitute. The office staff are very stuck up and snotty to several people. I've observed how they talk to parents and students and I left speechless!! The principal and is not engaged at all. I requested to meet with her and to this day, I never have. I personally feel like the school is so big that it has lost touch with the kids and the parents. If you want an RISD school, pick a different elementary school. I'm sure the district is great, just not this school.

I've been a CLP mom for the last 4 years. I have lived in several US states, and have been exposed to many, many elementary schools. I adore Cullins. Fantastic, caring teachers. Everyone knows who your child is. The kids here are confident learners. The principal is very involved, and you can tell she treats the teachers with respect and kindness. My only negative, and I didn't let it affect the rating, is that I wish the moms weren't so clique-y. I overhear them talking about other parents that don't (or simply can't) volunteer as much, etc. But that happens everywhere.

My family is moving to the Rockwall area this summer. I have looked at the school rating for this school and it just doesn't match the parent reviews - parents seem to love this school. Why is the school ranked a 6 and will it be improving in the very near future? Thanks for any info.

My son finished elementary at this school and my daughter is a student now. I could not hope to find a better school. The teachers and administrators are dedicated and care about each student. Parents are involved and encouraged to be a part of their child's education. My son was in the Special Education program and I was amazed at his progress. My daughter had the VERY BEST Kindergarten teacher and left Kinder reading and writing at a very high level. Kudos to DCLP!!

This school is amazing! My daughter will complete her first year at this school in June. You cannot find a better teacher than Ms. Childers in first grade! She has been absolutely fantastic with my child and has shown genuine interest in ensuring this school year has run smoothly. My daughter really bloomed in all class subjects, and has developed a wonderful self-confidence that was not present before attending this school. The principal is a very involved leader as well. Thank you to the CLP staff and faculty!

We moved to Texas a year ago from Maryland. I was worried because the schools are much larger and I still wanted my children to get quality personal attention. CLP is an outstanding school. The principal is outstanding and very caring. The teachers are wonderful and really care for the kids. Even being at the school for the first year, it still felt like everyone knew my children. Ms. Alvarez is the perfect kindergarten teacher. My son was also in the special education program and he flourished. During the year he learned to read! this given the fact that the previous year his teachers could barely teach him his colors. I'm so impressed and would recommend this school to anyone who is considering a move to the DFW area.

DCLP is a fantastic school, everyone loves the kids they teach like their own. We have a lot of activities and classes for the kids that aren't offered everywhere. They also encourage parental involvment more than i've found elsewhere and even allow parents who want to volunteer to come in with smaller children who are always welcomed in the classroom.

Cullins Lake-Pointe is a wonderful school in our district. The administration, teachers and staff truly believe that all students can succeed. The attitude is 'whatever it takes' to help the child. We are very fortunate to have dedicated parents that regularly volunteer and help our school. There is a sense of family when you step inside our doors -- we may be large , but there is a unique sense of relationships that is felt inside.

One or both of my children have attended Cullins for the past 7 years and I have always been very pleased and proud for my children to attend Cullins. The principal, teachers and staff are top notch. My son just graduated from Cullins to Junior High last year and my daughter is now in the first grade at Cullins. My Son has Dyslexia/ADHD and they have helped him tremendously over the years. You can't beat Cullins Lakepointe

This school is excellent all the way around. Where else does the principal stand at the front door every morning and greet each and every child? My child is learning disabilities and dyslexia, and this school was quick to get to the bottom of it so he could get the help he needed as soon as possible. Everyone there is always very, very positive. My only complaint is the lack of the subject of 'handwriting' at this school. Handwriting is not a subject, and I was told by many employees of the school that is just 'briefly' introduced after I brought the subject up because my son writes so badly. Other than that, though, this school is wonderful.

As a parent with a high maintenance child,I was very impressed witht he level of involvement from the admin. Staff. They kept me very involved w my sons performance,behavior and called regular meetings w me to discuss his progress. Had some attitude issues w some ofthe 6th grade teaching staff, but all in all I was very pleased with the handling of my son.

This school was very safe for my child. My child enjoyed many of the music, art, sports and other exracurricular activites they had to offer. There is a lot of fun and learning going on at Lake Pointe-Cullins.

My children have attended CLP for 5 years. I would like to say that this school is top notch. From the Principal to the teachers, they take their responsibility of teaching the kids and being great role models very serious. My son's teacher, Ms. McGovern has a passion for teaching like I have never seen. The school offers so much for the kids, art, music, band in 6th grade, health education in PE. It's just incredible. We recently found out that we are moving to another state and I am finding out just how much other schools do not have! Thank you Cullins-Lake Pointe for 5 great years of education with integrity.
