I expected more from this school. Kinder kids have nap time! there is so much to learn and yet they have to sleep during school hours! The last time my child took a nap he was a toddler. My 1st grader came home saying he watched T.V sometimes. My first grader seemed to be doing kinder work while my kinder kid seemed to be in day care! We came from a different state (military fam) from another public school, and the difference in curriculum is drastic. We actually moved to this neighborhood because of the great-schools ratings and was so disappointed on how their first year turned out when it came to their curriculum... On a positive note, the principal is nice and the school is clean. They got straight E's on their report cards, but sincerely, they are behind in some subjects and now i will have to work with them this summer. The kids do like the school and the number 1 reason why, "it's so easy!" as they would say.

I have absolutely loved Lewis! My son has loved his teachers. The Principal is on the ball and very caring. She is involved in all things Lewis. I was on the PTA and that's when I realized how much she cares about the students and how much effort is put into this school. Parents are extremely supportive and they have lot's of fun activities.

Great school but why is it that employee are allowed to warm up their child food when others students have to have food from home cold? Why are employees allowed to talk to their child during the child s lunch when they should be in there classroom. I say several employees go and hug their own child during lunch duty.

Great school, and I'm no fan of public education. Teachers are involved and everything is modern, etc. Can't get much better for Elementary. I don't think I'd send my kid to public school on the High School level on San Antonio, but for Elementary, it's great.

The teachers there are awesome and really care about the students. The staff is always looking for ways to enhance their learning opportunities with hands on, real world experiences!

Not a bad school, but the principal needs to be more 'in the know' of what the teachers are doing. One thing that bothered me is that some teachers allow the children to watch t.v. when they could be reading to them. Also, there needs to be more emphasis on continuing to challege the children who excell and finish thier work as there is on helping those who are behind.
