The school isn't what we were used to but It's okay For a Dallas Public school. Parent Involvement I will give a D-. There are only a hand full of volunteers and What one of the other parents said about it only involving when their child is in trouble. I would like to see a Better Pick up and Drop off System for the 14-15 school year and beyond. I would also like to see more Positive parent involvement and to see the students more focused on their academic goals. My daughter is a Honor and TAG student at this school but since it's a Vanguard school I would like it to reflect that in most of the students not the small 10-15%... The staff is great The front office person could use a bit more training. Not happy the Principal is leaving we will miss Mrs. Lewis. Some teachers are okay. But I can tell it's not a easy school to be at all of the time, However, I have seen a few instances where Teachers have kinda snapped at the students. That needs to change but a over all okay school. We as community could A lot better with the school and the ratings Could easily be a 7-10 Rating school Versus the 5 out of 10 rating. Okay but we could do a lot better as a whole for this school.

My daughter is attending the 4th Grade Vanguard (TAG) at Polk, and she has had an amazing experience. The teachers have really motivated her to think outside the box and perform at her highest level. She was always a good student, but this year, we've seen her develop a real desire to excel, and I believe her teachers and fellow students at Polk have played a big role in that growth. There are not many extracurriculars available for the Vanguard kids who are mostly bussed into the school, and based on the PTA meetings I've attended, parent involvement is fairly low. However, it's really the teachers and administration that make this school great, and we do our extracurricular activities elsewhere.
