We have been extremely happy with THES. I was initially concerned with the ratings, but don't be fooled by the numbers. This is a very inclusive and supportive school. The teachers and staff are top notch and have gone above and beyond to support my son. He also participates in the dual language program and is grade level for both English and Spanish. Come check out this hidden gem.

This school has been great for my 2 kids. Great parents community. This is an in-district charter school within Austin Independent School District, so they have more freedom to try advanced teaching methodologies. I recommend this school.

The school is very community-based. Lots of parental involvement, great teachers, active PTA. I highly recommend -- I have twin daughters there, and occasionally substitute teach and am the PTA treasurer.

The characteristic I hold in highest regard is that even though much of the school is economically disadvantaged (~70%), most all the parents are involved. I walk my kiddos in everyday and am joined by parents of all races and socio-economic backgrounds. I see clusters of parents networking with each other and parents just about everyday.

Unfortunately as a parent I've had to witness the assistant principal, on two different occasions, make comments to parents that were highly inappropriate. On both occasions these parents were trying to handle delicate situations with their children who were experiencing great states of distress. The assistant principal spoke very harshly to both of these parents in a very rude and condescending manner. What is especially troubling is that this was done in front of other parents at least twice that I've witnessed. It is not the job of school staff to openly critique individuals ability to handle crisis situations in public!
