In response to the post regarding Ms. Plummer. She was our 2nd great teacher and we had a wonderful year with her! Yes, she is strict, has high expectations of students, and runs her classroom a certain way, but I believe she is very passionate about teaching and my child thrived in her classroom. I respect the opinion of the other parent writing the negative review. Each child is different and not every child "clicks" with every teacher, but wanted to post a positive response in all fairness to Ms. Plummer, who we loved.

This is the absolute WORST school ever! Terrible leadership from principal to teachers to maintenance staff. Ms. Plummer, a second grade teacher, is by far the absolute worst educator in the entire San Antonio area. She is an old, mean, bitter person that needs to retire. She does not care one bit about anything except drawing a paycheck and treating children and parents with ugliness and disrespect. Any other school would fire this pitiful excuse for a teacher but upper management isn't much better. Do not enroll your children in this cess pool of a school you would be better off home schooling you kids. We actually moved out of this district just to get our kids away from the derelicts that run this place. Learn from our mistake and do your kids a favor by staying as far away from this trashy school as you can.

My family is also relocating to San Antonio from Florida and I'm in the process of finding a GREAT school for my son and close to my employer. I've heard great things about this school and look forward to meeting the administrators.

My family may be moving to San Antonio from NYC and is looking for a top notch school for our two elementary aged sons. We have NO idea where to live - but want to ensure that it's in the BEST possible school district.

We could not have asked for a better elementary school to transfer to, from out of state. I chose Aue Elementary solely based on the previous three excellent reviews of the school, when moving to San Antonio in 2009. The excellent reputation and test scores are what prompted me to purchase a home in this area of San Antonio. Other than Leon Springs Elementary, this would have been one of the only other schools I would have chosen my third grader to attend after moving here. The teachers do an excellent job of using curriculum to help prepare for statewide testing throughout the year (i.e.: TAKS), and most teachers seem very approachable and willing to help, even if they are not your own child's teacher. We made one of the biggest changes in life by moving across the country with a school-age child, and have no regrets about Aue!

This school is Top Notch! Texas EXEMPLARY! We have the cream of the crop in skilled, talented and dedicated Teachers. Our school is brand new (2007) with state-of-the-art-technology, reading and math programs. We have an absolutely wonderful Principal and Vice-Principal. We have a strong and dedicated PTA and Volunteer base. Children and their education come first here. GO GATORS!

My son attends Aue Elementary School. He really likes it. His 1st grade teacher Mrs. Schweers is a blessing, he had a great year and he learned a lot. His 2nd grade teacher is great too. We have been blessed with great teacher for our son. As previous mother said, AUE Teachers are wonderful at helping the students understanding the materials and guiding them to achieve their goals. We are extremely happy with this school!

My daughter attends Aue Elementary School and she loves it. I have been very happy with what she is being taught and the high expectations. The teachers are wonderful at assessing the students understanding of the materials and guiding them to achieve their goals.
