Regency Place has teachers and staff that are very dedicated to the students. I believe that what they can improve on is communication with the parents so that more can become involved. Despite this, it is a great school where students are thriving. Of note is that this school provides a dual language program that is so beneficial for students.

The school has excellent teachers and a very committed administrative staff. The biggest drawback is the lack of commitment to the arts, but that is a problem in many Texas schools today. The custodians do a great job keeping up maintenance on the buildings which are at least 50 years old.
