my school my son is in seems to be one of the best in Victoria but last year we had some problems with a teacher hounding my son and writing him up like everyday over the littlest things. Which is upsetting because my son has an attention disorder and I feel this school needs to show more compassion for that and offer more one on one with students with disability's. also had been told by my son there's some bullying going on so I am concerned about him continuing there just pray he gets a more understanding teacher this year.

My daughter has been going here since 1st grade. I love the teachers! They all have done a wonderful job. Last year on my daughter's TAKS test she did not miss one question. Thanks Aloe and its staff for the wonderful job you have done with my daughter. We'll miss you next year as she enters 6th grade.

This school use to be a wonderful school but has gone downhill in the past three years. If you have the chance of sending your child somewhere else do so. Some teachers are amazing but not challenging enough. Test scores for the school has dropped and it really shows.

Aloe is a terrific school and I would certainly recommend it to any parent who thinks that in order for a child to excel they have to be in a private school. I am much more pleased with Aloe than the two, different private schools my kids attended.
