This school has mostly horrible young new teachers...my son had a horrible kg and 2nd grade teacher. The principal was the worst I've ever seen. This was in 2012 though, it may have changed since then.
Fantastic School! Families are great! Staff is fantastic! Administration is awesome! Small town love meets relevant learning.
As a parent, the staff has gone above and beyond to meet my children's needs. The extracurricular programs are excellent and I can't imagine sending my kids anywhere else. PTO is super supportive, and the district is all around fantastic.
We were very happy with the education and enviroment of this school. My sons attended Kinder through 4 grades, they both enjoyed school and were doing great. We recently moved to Florida and after one year we are desperate to move back to Royse City and hope to return to Anita Scott. My sons teachers were always caring and concerned teachers and went the extra mile to teach my boys!
I have had three kids at this school and it has been ,for the most part, horrible. K thru 3 was acceptable, but the fourth grade was exceptionally bad. In my experience, there are next to no consequences for bullying. My child had to have their schedule rearranged while the offending students were allowed to continue as they were. My child was ignored and scolded when the teachers were told about what was going on. We also had major problems with teachers claiming that assignments were never turned in after numerous efforts by my child to do just that. Grading was questionable at best. On one occasion, a great deal of points were deducted because other students didn't like what my child turned in. My kids were miserable at this school. We have since moved because of this school. If we wouldn't have moved, I would have homeschooled my children before I put them back here. But, if your child has unshakeable self-confidence and doesn't mind completing assignments several times each, then this school might just work for you.
i have had 2 kids in this school and i am very unhappy and plan to remove my kids from this district all together. Scott has not meet my child's need for her learning disability and had to start all over when moved up to the next school...and my kindergarten son they wanted to do add/adhd testing on and the teacher has been absent 95%of the school year and now wants to hold him back because the sub did not teach him what was on her learning lessons for the year. the staff is un willing to have meeting with parents to discuss matters but nothing can be done because the teacher is still absent and unable to have the meeting she wants.. this school is the worst in the whole district.
I have had two children that have attendent and I am very happy with the school. I come from California and the schools out here are wonderful. I see more parent involvement out here then I have ever seen in California. I have loved all the teachers that my children have had.
I have been very unhappy with this school. The principal is rude and unfriendly. He allows his staff to be rude to and yell at parents right in the front office and does not take action. Quite a few of the staff are very rude. They do not respect or care for the children the way that a school should. They do not handle money for lunches or the little shops and bookfairs very well. Very unorganized. And almost impossible to get help or answers to any questions you might have.
We have been delighted with Anita Scott Elementary. We had moved our son from Rockwall schools where he was not reading after the 1st grade and was in a slow learner program. After enrolling him at Scott, his wonderful teacher recognized that he had signs of dyslexia, took appropriate action, and he was reading well by Christmas. It took a well-trained teacher observation to see what he needed and Scott Elementary met the need with action. A year later, my son is child who loves to read at grade level and is in the Talented and Gifted program. All teachers that he has had at Scott have been excellent teachers. They have helped him discover and develop his talents. Also, the principals at Scott care deeply about their school's children and show it in their work to provide fun school & family extracurricular activities to make the best possible environment for learning.
