10 Parent Reviews for Purple Sage Elementary School

I was a bit concerned that PS wouldn't be as good as Spicewood, but boy was I wrong. Class sizes are smaller and my kiddos get extra hands-on attention. I'm so happy my kids are going to a smaller school.

"Recognized" status and moving up! This smaller sized school offers great student/teacher ratios, experienced teachers, and a true sense of community. PS gives both of my children the individualized education that they require. The art, music and TAG teachers are exceptional and the dual language ...  Read more

My son has gone to Purple Sage for almost 2 years now, kindergarten and 1st grade. I am shocked at how the teachers and administrators quit on a student that is having a hard time. We have done everything that they asked us to do, and they have done nothing that has been asked of them. I am appalled ...  Read more

Our daughter has thrived here for the past two years. We are especially happy for the dual-language program that started this year. The school as a whole has a very safe community feel to it.

We just moved to a school that was highly rated (9-10) and are soooo much happier at Purple Sage. My kids are in 2nd and 5th grade.

good school, internationally oriented, but weak on teacher communication

My child has been at this school for 1 year. He has blossomed. Thanks to the wonderful staff and teachers! Purple Sage is also a bilingual school and has approximately 100 enrolled in the spanish bilingual program. They have really given these bilingual students a great start to their future in life ...  Read more

My children have been at Purple Sage for 4 years. Even though it's rating has gone down, the quality of education hasn't. I think the change in rating has to do the bilingual program that has been implemented. The teachers show great concern for the students; the music, art, and PE programs are very ...  Read more
