10 Parent Reviews for Alton Boyd Elementary School

A few years ago, under a different administration, this school was rough. Things have dramatically changed under Mr. Pursifull's leadership!! The teacher morale appears to be way up as teachers and staff are enthusiastic about their jobs. They are warm and welcoming to parents and students. Boyd is a ...  Read more

I really liked the few teachers that show they care for students.but there are more that don't put the students needs first and are more worried about other things.also you have to ask multiple times if you want something done...PTA events are really good tho...

Boyd has the most dedicated staff in the district. Student/ teacher relationships are very apparent through out the school. Student needs are the top priority.

I don't know how the school used to be, but I must say that I have been very impressed so far. The staff and administration are excellent, the security is top-notch, and I have been given everything possible from the staff to get my child transerred and enrolled without any issues. Don't forget that ...  Read more

The teachers are excellent, PTA is very active, however we are not at all pleased with the administration of the school and how our concerns about our student are handled. If the adminstration does not improve we will be transferring our child next school year.

Boyd Elementary is a special school. I have known it, worked with it, and have known the staff for the last 30 years. This school has a heart! It cares and it shows.

The staff treated me as if they'd known me all along. The PTA is great too. They also made me feel very welcomed. I have not had any problems with ...  Read more

This is the worst elementary school in Allen, Texas. I have a child that attended this school for part of the year, and her abilities/grades improved 150% after being removed from this school.

My son went to Boyd for 2 1/2 years before we moved specifically for the purpose of getting him out of Boyd. The assistant principal who is no longer there did a horrible job of listening and taking care of my concerns. Children who bully and abuse others are not dealt with. Do not send your child ...  Read more

If you're thinking of a good school for your kids, consider Boyd! I'll be surprised if you don't like it. From the teachers to lunchroom to custodians to principal to nurse -everyone, I've been very impressed. We've gone to four schools and this one is great. I know the grades matter but the way the ...  Read more
