Scobee is a great school. I am so happy we moved here. Whenever the grandparents visit they love to spend the day with the kids at Scobee and they always come back saying the same thing, "what a great school." The principal is involved in everything and his caring attitude filters down. The VP has been there since the school opened and has things down pat. I love the fact that myself and our children can walk to school in this wonderful neighborhood, and many parents do walk with their children to drop off and pick up. The teachers are wonderful, the support staff is wonderful. The librarian runs an incentive program to get the kids reading. The PTA involvement at this school far surpasses anything I have ever experienced. There are big key events EVERYONE goes to. As well, there are many events the PTA supports to keep the community connected. I love this school. mMre importantly my children are happy, and learning in a wonderful environment

Wonderful school!! Our children had been in a private school here in San Antonio for 4 years. They were straight 'A' students. We naturally assumed we were giving them the best 'classical' education available. What we found to be true was the children at Scobee were actually recieving a better, well rounded, complete education. We moved our kids to Scobee and couldn't be happier with the choice! The teachers (especially Mrs. Balido, Mrs. Rector and Mrs. Glassburn) are experienced and fabulous. We appreciate all of their interaction and regular communication with the parents. The principal & vice principal are terrific and easy to approach. Thank you Scobee for a terrific change!

My son just finished Kinder at Scobbee, and learned so much this year, and had a Great teacher named Ms Pepper. We received updates on what the children were doing in PE, and the school even had a KinderFest night, so you could see what your child was learning in Music, Computers, Art and PE. We love this school and all of its faculty.

Both of my daughters have loved their learning experience at Scobee and have excelled in all subjects. The socialization and character education is wonderful as well. The counselors have really helped my daughters through tough times and I truly appreciate all of the faculty and staff at the school

We recently moved here from Albuquerque, and our son was in the middle of his kinder year. I am amazed at how much he has learned in such a little time. Scobee is a Great school. His teacher Ms. Pepper has impressed both my wife and I with her great teaching style. Also the impressive results in our sons learning in such a short time. I have been bragging to family and friends at how much our son has excelled. I keep telling them he has learned more in the first few weeks to a month here then he did in his whole first semester in New Mexico. From a very proud father.
