Could not be at a better school in Austin. Field trips galore, gardens in front of every classroom, involved parents, happy teachers who DO CARE! They strive to make learning fun at Zilker. Do go take a tour and visit.

Zilker as most public schools, is struggling to keep up with the problem kids and they want to box every kid into the same mold. My son has been bullied from day one and the teacher did not care at all. Another problem is at the cafeteria, where the "warden" starts yelling at the kids if the noise level ...  Read more

We chose to live in the Zilker neighborhood solely for the school. It is a spectacular environment. Most of the teachers go way beyond the call of duty, and are there out of a deep commitment to give kids a true learning experience. Most of the teahers could all be highly successful in any other field, ...  Read more

If you have a bright child that seems a bit advanced, which I do, my experience has been that the teachers are too overwhelmed with accomodating the trouble makers and children needing extra help to catch up, to give advanced children the work and attention to keep them excited about their work. It ...  Read more

My son attended Zilker from Pre K thru 5th grade. Last year was our last. An education is only as good as the teacher and we had an above average one every year. Their were at least two very good ones in each grade we entered. The core of teachers is still in place, but the diversity sets it apart ...  Read more
