They allowed my son to fall out of their sight on the way to the school bus, he walked home. He is seven years old....and they still tried to blame him instead of taking responsibility

My daughter went to Baskin for her kinder and 1st grade, the teachers are great! I really enjoyed the staff except the principal, she wasn't a very nice person. I feel like if you are a principal for an elmentary school, you be approachable and be a little more caring towards the students and parents. I recomend this school, but the princepal needs an attitude adjustment.

Ms. Madrid is an awesome teacher! The faculty and staff are willing to talk to you about your thoughts and concerns. They encourage parent involvement and have a way of getting the kids excited about learning. Keep up the good work!!

Whatever Baskin is doing it is doing it right! my 2 children have been attending Baskin for 3 years now and the dedication I have seen from the entire staff is amazing. Baskin's expectations are so high, that no matter what obstacles student might walk through the door with, they will walk out an exceptional student!

Excellent school. We have had our son in five elementary schools and this one is by far the best. The TAKS tests (Texas tests) are always higher than the national average. Next week the school is taking the kids to a college vist, under the Gear up program. There have been several field trips. After school programs with the YMCA, and school lunch is funded by the state. It is a low income area, with low income kids, but the school is truly top notch.
