This school is run very poorly. There is a lack of extracurricular activities and there are virtually no field trips for the younger kids. The teachers are good, but a lot of them have been leaving lately. The school is completely focused on the TAKS test.

This school is great. The teachers are very dedicated, professional and kind. My daughters have gained more then just the education provided..they have better self-esteems and social skills and are overall great kids thanks to the teachers and office staff at this school.
