The school needs a compassionate leader. The school is run like a prison. The A.P.s are awesome, it is the principal that needs to retire from strict one sided ways.

I'm giving this an above average rating based on the new principal and asst Principal, Mr. Berringer and Mrs. Kratky and one teacher, Mrs. Ledvina. My child had some issues at the beginning of the year related to being highly unfocused and unorganized. Through several parent-teacher meetings, which Mrs.
... Read more Kratky also attended, we came up with a game plan and enacted it. My child has done a complete turnaround with a little extra help and reminding from Mrs. Ledvina of things he may have forgetten. I've also received phone calls and emails from Mrs. Ledvina whenever she starts notice him faltering too much. Wonderful communications after a bumpy start this year. The only negative thing I have to say is that the school nurse is NEVER on time. I tried looking on the district website to find out what her schedule is, but it's not there. I have consistently ran almost an hour late for work each month when it's time to drop my childs medications off because she doesn't come strolling in until around 8:20. The school opens at 7:30. Shouldn't she be on campus when students begin showing up, not when the bell rings?? It is frustrating since she's the only one who I can drop the meds off to. Read less

this is the worst school in the district. What a waste of my tax dollars. The location of the school is right in the middle of a high drug and crime area not to mention the sex offender located in the area.

Much has changed over the past 5 years at Drew and that's a great thing! The principal, along with her assistant principals and teachers run a great program for the students. The school prides itself on improving student academics as well as nurturing the whole child by providing the students with

My daughter is a student at this school and is ADHD... Her adcademics are faltering and so is her self esteem. She has been denied access to the library in order to get the materials needed for homework assignments. one teacher, told my daughter to tell me 'she did not need my notes and letters.'

My child is currently enrolled in this school. The school has challenge math and GT classes, student council, participates in UIL competitions, has gymnastics and choir afterschool programs. A lot of students take one huge 'real' elective - band. The rest of electives are 6 weeks rotations of music,

The school has been under construction for several years. Every year they build something new: the new library, the new gym, the new 6th grade section, the new cafeteria... And the school looks much better than before. Since it's a little district students have chance to participate in different activities at middle and high school like dance and sport workshops, choir and gymnastics performances at sport games.

The principal at this school is horrible. She and the asst. principals do not care about the children.

Very poorly managed...wrote Principal emails, and she passed them to asst principals without replying, and they rarely return calls. My daughter's sixth grade teacher had to be written up to send home schoolwork, and once the 'heat' was off, she quickly resumed her previous behavior. Apparently the
