My son went to this school for second grade, and I will never allow him to go back. Just look at the demographics, test scores mean nothing. They prep the kids on the tests alone and the children aren't retaining the information. My son was bored out of his mind. I have never seen a group of such impolite children or teachers with such little control. My son didn't learn anything here except to act like all the fools around him. It took me two weeks of summer vacation to correct his bad behavior, and now he is finally my sweet boy again. I should have taken him out on back to school night when I saw some of the parents with teardrop tattoos on their faces. I'll trust my intuition more next time.

This is not a good school. Kids are violent and unruly. I hope the children learn how to prosper in life but DO NOT send your child here. The NISD discriminates by forcing only the schools with disadvantaged youth to wear uniforms. This is one of them. By NISD standards, school HAS to wear uniform=bad school.

1st of all why does anyone want to talk down on the Spanish culture we suffered enough and 2nd we don't get royalty some of the staff really need a hug or something because those individuals treat everyone unfairly this is a great school they just need to remember that if those individuals don't like there jobs, do us all a favor & change professions

This school is horrible, the staff is disrespectful, if you you english as your first language you get mistreated, if you speak spanish the staff treats you like royalty. We are in the United States sending our children to an American school not a spanish speaking school. Had to switch my child's school, do not send your child here!

Adams Hill Elem. has been a blessing for me and my son. The teachers and staff have been very helpful with getting the help my son needs. I have been updated on my sons academic grades and the progress he's made. I am able to have confrences at my convience and when ever I feel neccessary.
