Travis is an excellent school with an amazing staff. The teachers LIVE there they are so dedicated (just drive by on a weekend)! So glad my children are Travis Texans.

Most of these comments are out-dated. Travis has a lovely, new facility and was a TEA Recognzied campus last year. Teachers and administrators are caring, and the instruction is excellent. Recently, it was one of only 42 schools in the nation to receive the Green Ribbon Award for teaching and modeling environmental responsibility.

Travis is an excellent elementary school. First off, it is brand new, with good facilties, library, and lots of outdoor room. The GT program is excellent as is the teacher Ms Suarez. San Marcos schools have improved so much. The schools are diverse, and I think that has caused a very mistaken perception of the schools. It is a great represnetation of the diversity in South Texas. Our children love Travis and have made many friends there in no time.

I feel that Travis is not a very good school. I beleive that 'Not students left behind' is not what the school is about. I think the school tends to forget about the students, and the leader of the school tends to forget why she is there. I can't wait to move out of the district!

Travis was orgionally a 3rd-5th grade school and the teachers are more suited to those grade levels. I find they lack the patience with kinder and 2nd grade students and do not tailor punishments to fit the crime nor the age of the child. Look into getting some younger teachers travis and maybe your younger students would thrive some one with more patience is truly needed. Perhaps someone who is not biding their last few years til retirement.

Travis has many excellent teachers, but is housed in a dilapidated old school. District plans to update the facility in 2005-06.

I've had three children attend Travis and have been very happy. The positives are that the teachers/administration have been there a long time, and the principal, Deborah McCullough, is excellent at recruiting intelligent, caring teachers. I've been happy with all we've had there. The school has a gifted and talented program, and a music program, but the time the kids get to spend in these is pretty limited. But, all of my kids teachers have done extra things for my kids to help challenge them. Of course what they can do is limited because of the attention that must be given the entire class. Unfortunately, Travis is ranked rather low economically - (I'd read that 95% of the students are on the free-lunch program) which I think has a direct connection with parent involvement, eventhough it is encouraged and applauded, most have to work and can't be involved.

My child went to this school last school year. The teacher she had for first grade missed an ave of 1 day a week from class. I did not feel the campus was safe. The first grade classes were out in the open while the fourth and fifth grades were in the actual school. The children were sent to the office, restrooms with no supervision and there was nothing there to protect them from wondering into the busy road or just being taken. I was not at all impressed with this school. I was told that it was one of the best in San Marcos if this is true I would hate to see the rest. We moved back to Florida for this school year and my child is behind the rest of her grade. Would not recommend this school district to a prent who is interested in their child getting a good education.

Travis is a very old school which means there is room for improvement. The school yard and the entire school is located near a railroad track which makes noisy classrooms and hazardous situations. There is also a busy street located in front of the school but the play yard is boxed in with a fence and I must say, there are acres of play yard. Nice school, just needs some updates and improvements.
