We've had two kids go through Curtsinger and a third going through now. While there are a handful of teachers that are good and care for the kids, there are a lot that seem to be there just to pass out worksheets and pass on information. The general atmosphere seems to be all about what's best for the teachers. Yes, the PTA is active, but so much of that is, again, teacher focused. The families are asked to do things every month for the teacher; providing lunch, birthday gifts, items for the classroom, etc. If the PTA is so grand, why can't they provide some of the basics for the classrooms. Many of the teachers use a threatening and punitive behavior management system. We are also surprised at how often we see teachers dressed as if they just rolled out of bed, and it's not even a dress up day. So many teachers in yoga pants, sweatshirts, ripped jeans. While we know it's not a formal environment, it shouldn't be hard to recognize who the teachers are. Some of the teachers are good, but there's an over-arching attitude of: of the teacher, by the teacher, and for the teacher; not nearly enough focus on the needs of the individual students.

I absolutely love this school. .my kids are excited to go to school everyday. The teachers are great, they genuinely want the kids to do well. They are very responsive and encourage parents to get involved as much as possible.

Some staff are ineffective at best and toxic at worst. Leadership is lacking and communication with them is difficult. Gifted program doesn’t go far enough to address needs.

My children have attended Purefoy for the past 5 years. It is an incredible, cooperative, strong, loving environment. The teachers and staff go out of their way to make sure the children are receiving the best education possible. The PTA is awesome and so many parents are involved. We have been very blessed.

Full of kids who love to learn, where teachers are passionate (just google the multiple profiles of their fantastic efforts) and administration is strategically guiding all to the future (ensure school test site for extra recess, etc.). THE BEST!

My son's experience at Ashley has been nothing less than excellent. We moved from another state but the first day of K was just as fun as the last day. This continued through to his first grade and now he cannot wait to start second grade at Ashley. The teachers are very nurturing, the Principal was incredible and the fun programs the PTA (WHOOP) conducts for kids and teachers through the year are what great schools should strive for and luckily Ashley already has!

Overall I think it is an average school, definitely not a bad school. The biggest problem is the school is over crowded and this makes it hard on the teachers to concentrate on kids and make them excel by pushing the kids a little.

My babies first minimum security prison. Schools like this are exactly why the United States is 17th in educational performance and Texas is 43rd in the U.S. All they do is effectively create drones to throw out in a consumerist society. No true human potential will be nurtured here. Starting with kindergarten the children are in class 8 hours a day and get 30 minutes for a quiet lunch with assigned seats followed by 30 minutes of recess on a tiny playground. Similar to how prisoners are allowed an hour out in the yard. The attendance policies are very harsh and in the first speech the vice principal made to the parents she warned everyone she's not afraid to get the courts involved. Parents aren't allowed in the school without a very specific reason, so drop off involves pulling around back and letting your kid go with various teachers who lead them to the gym so they can sit and wait for the bell. Pick up is waiting in a line that can potentially wrap around the school if you don't show up 40 minutes early and the various teachers then bring the child directly to your car, which can take forever and just feels like a good way to let teachers avoid face to face contact with parents. When explaining pick up to people without kids they all say the same thing, feeling that it is similar to picking up someone who just got out of prison. The other 7 hours of school they sit in over crowded classrooms with 1 or 2 small windows and go through the same motions every day, with only 2 field trips a year to break the monotony.Schedules like this, and the inability for any freedom of exploration are why adults get depressed, why wouldn't this apply to children too? I give it 2 stars because it is a safe and clean environment with very nice teachers who will present facts and help my child to learn. But I stongly believe none of it will be effective. Don't be surprised if your child gets bored, has an excess amount of energy, or gets in trouble for day dreaming. While this place establishes rules and has educational material that is necessary for society to continue, they completely ignore the human spirit forcing the children into thinking within the box and to be robots. I hope you have a beautiful homelife and take your child to do many worldly activities because this place will deprive them of any true life experience and they will hate school by 3rd grade

We moved our kids to Fisher from a charter school three years ago and couldn’t be happier! The teachers are pure quality, top notch educators, who make learning fun. The stellar administrators are top notch as well. They set a supportive, kind, creative tone for the whole environment. My kiddos describe the school as a happy, fun place. I see it as age-appropriately academically challenging. Love their Quest program! We’ve never encountered any type of bullying here. It’s an amazing, supportive, fun, academically challenging school! I wish I could rate them more than five stars!!!! This place is off the charts fabulous.

I have three kids at Norris and we have had a very positive experience. The staff are wonderful at engaging the students in learning by making the process practical and fun. They offer many statergies for children to use when trying to grasp new concepts. They know each child by name and ability. They have meetings and formulate plans to help each child reach their potential. Carefully selected homework is given and lots of online resources are available for extra practice. Norris deals with bullying seriously and quickly. The councilor and teachers are exceptionaly good at their jobs, part of their success comes from their varied experience and skills.

Since moving to Texas, we have had a great experience at Ogle. Even when we have considered moving houses, our one constraint is that we do not want to leave Ogle. We feel it is a good community of caring parents, along with school staff and administration. I can’t pretend it’s perfect. There are glitches along the way ... but by far, I am pleased. At the end of the day, we feel our kids are safe, are learning, and are happy, when they are at Ogle.

I just want to say the past 3 years at Sem has been such a positive difference. The first year that the new principal took over you could tell there were a lot of positive changes going on and staff morale was up. My kids and family have great relationships with all the staff and I am glade we are part of the Sem family!

My son has been going to Elliot since 2nd grade. He is now a 5th grader here. They have made some major changes for the better not that it was bad to begin with! My son hit some difficulties in 3rd grade with confidence that turned into behavioral issues and sad to say depression...and when i say WE ALL rallied around my son to help him..>NEW PRINCIPAL INCLUDED. I don't know where my family would be without their CONSTANT support, genuine love and care, and ...and ...and...The next year they made major changes to how they handled teacher, parent communication because my son receiving "bad notes" in his binder while we were struggling sure didn't help to say the least. I don't think that they made those changes just for my son...But i truly do believe that they sat down as a team of caring professionals, looked at the situation and said lets try something different for ALL the kids to help prevent similar situations! I am so grateful to them for being so darn awesome!! And that's not to even mention how much effort they put into teaching our kids and making it fun and inspiring for the students. as well as getting us parents involved. I know this is long but i can't speak highly enough about the staff here. I'M SO HURT WE HAVE TO LEAVE NEXT YEAR :( we don't want to grow up!! lol But they have defiantly set the bar high and have laid a great foundation for my son and our little family.

The school heavily focuses on behavior, to a toxic extent, and even despite that, I still hear of bullying going on inside the classrooms. For a school with such poor scores and where at least half of the kids are low income, why is the third week of school focused on college??!? Half these kids won't go to college, not to mention, this is an elementary school - why not have a week dedicated to what the third graders are up to? They are so hellbent on being distinguished and calling themselves an "academy", but it's all smoke and mirrors; what they're really focused on is making sure children toe the line, sit quietly at their desks, and buy in to the hype. No, thanks, I've seen too many awesome elementary schools and private schools to keep my precocious kinder kiddo anywhere near Bright.
