Think about it like this: eight out of ten of the last postings had errors. Look for yourselves. The only two which did not, were one sentence each. Think about this very hard.

My both my daughters have always had problems with reading and math. Only my younger daughter goes to Serna. Well let me say that Serna has done their best to help her with her math and reading. She had dramatically improved on her math skills. As far as her reading they saw the problem and stepped in to give her speech therapy, which she needed. The speech therapist is so patience and kind, as is the dyslexia specialist. They have been working with her and help me feel like they are doing everything they can for her. The dyslexia specialist has even helped me get help for my middle schooler when I was having problems with her school. When I moved I was worried about my daughter leaving this school and having to start all over again. But her principal Mr. Price assured me that he would let her stay, to get the help she needed.

The teachers work so hard to accommodate the students. It is a Title 1 school which only makes it all the more challenging.

The academic programs seem to need small improvements.

The school is an older school. The teachers are very helpful and love their jobs as well as the children. They are a Title 1 school. This is a good and a bad thing. My child can read at 5, so she is board some of the time. But I see it working for the school. I like the school and the staff. They do not have an art class. There doen't seam to be alot of parent involvement, but the ones that do are very detacated to the school and to the PTA. They need to come up with a better way of getting the children to the busses in the P.M.

This is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers. Many activities that involve parental involvement and fun learning for the kids. I wish we hadnt had to move away or my kids could still be here enjoying the warm atmosphere this school offers.

We feel that the teachers are too immature to be teaching. Our teacher that we had this year had no patience and tried to be friends instead of an adult, whenever the kids got silly or loud she would loose it. I know kids get crazy but you have to have the maturity to handle this. The teachers are stressed and that leads to the kids being stressed it is a wonder that they even passed their TAKS test at all. My daughter who was an 'A' 'B' student when she arrived at the school suddenly was struggling to get a 'C'. Then when all the pressure from the taks test was off she returned to a 'B'. I say stop the pressure and teach. Stop being their buddy and be an adult. If kids get on your nerves don't be a teacher.

the facilities at serna were disappointing at best...there is little effort on the part of most teachers to really help teach the children. My daughter went to school to receive an education , what she got in reeturn from her teachers was a friend or in other words a tolerable adult figure to let her slide in school...especially on homewrok. When confronted one of her teachers said she just did not have much time to be able to dedicate extra time to some of her students. we will be moving back to texas in the future but will not choose serna as an option for our kids.
