My child was there for 2 and a half years. I just switched her out recently. It seems the teachers and staff have no standards or morale.

I don't even know where to begin with the problems this school has. My child (preK)was sent to the wrong pick up. When I addressed this concern (a long with many others) the AP never once apologized or accepted any responsibility,but had told me that "it happens every year."

My son attended Ira Cross for one school year. It was awful. Before we moved to TX he was a B student.

He is finally ...  Read more

I have worked at this school and one of my children attended this school over a year ago. Ira Cross is really a great school. I always enjoyed how friendly the staff was and how professional the administration was. I felt appreciated and was commended on my hard work. There was always something positive ...  Read more

By far one of the best schools in the KISD district. I understand why they are have been accredited as one of the best in the district. I do not believe our kids will ever get a better PUBLIC school education like Ira Cross. Being a army family we will move alot and I am nervous that we won't find a ...  Read more
