When you are a Foster Parent, the first thing you do is take the child to school the next day. We've had 3 separate children enter the doors of Tom Hicks in the last 3 years. Each and every time, the dedicated staff has been amazing. Whether the child is brilliant or special needs, the entire organization ...  Read more

This school is pretty awesome. I went here as a student years ago and it was fun but also educational. Teachers pushed me to work harder and helped me overall.

I totally agree with the reviewers below. Hicks is not academically focused. If your kid is studious, gifted, high achiever... This isn't the right place for him. Teachers only care about the PTA kids and gifts. Staff in general is OK. Hicks is all about favorites and fundraising, " Fanatical PTA ...  Read more

Cannot speak to the school performance as far as teaching goes. However, the school is a very bad neighbor! The grounds are poorly maintained, not up to the neighborhood standards.

I have two kids at this school - we are new this year. Our teachers are a mixed bag - one is really fantastic, and one has no business teaching at all.

We had a bad experience at the school overall. The teachers did not help at all with my sons needs. My son's are both gifted students and they were not learning to a standard that I found satisfactory. My older son asked if his teacher would give him some more challenging worksheets to do. In response, ...  Read more

Snooty fanatical fundraising PTAs, teachers who teaches to TAKS... Are your thing, then by all means but If you expect higher standards this isn't the school for you... It is all about money and favorites here... High performing kids usually left this school from my experience there...
