This school has a lot of struggling students.

Our children attended Iduma between 2005-2006 and and again between 2012-present. We made sure that when we bought our home in 2005 that it was zoned for Iduma ES. Iduma ES is one of two IB (international baccalaureate) elementary schools within the Killeen ISD. Now I must say that our children attended 3 other schools within the district and in my opinion, Iduma has been the best.

My son has been at Iduma since preK. He has always been a very active child so I have been worried about his behavior. I am very proactive with this and communicate with his teachers frequently. He has learned so much being at this school. He is able to connect his school learning to experiences at home and I see that reflected quite often. He is going into 3rd grade this year, and I anticipate another great learning experience. His teacher this year was the best! I don't know if we can top Ms. Cameron! She sent emails frequently to let parents know what was going on, what the students were expected to learn, and even examples of how to work with your kids at home to reinforce school learning. I loved it!

The teacher refuse to inform you of your child's behavior Instead the principal will call you up to suspend your kid with out any paper work when to return and laugh while your child's crying and she will inform you in front of her staff as to show off power, I was not going to say anything but I feel parents should be warned lack of communication and the communication skills are terrible and everything will be dramatized. My son started pre K was only there two days and no calls and I asked teacher to call me if any problems and she said can't have to let principle know, I knew nothing till they suspend him on second day, then to find out he was pushed off a swing bar and he hit back, she, the little girl, did not get in any trouble and he was labeled in school system as a person who assults. He is in speech therapy and kids tend to pick and the teacher has to many students and principles complains if the overcrowded and behavior problems in my son's class on second day. I'm a military widow and I expected support but instead walked out the office that day crying. I have took him out. The school gets at at 1 o'clock on Thursdays to suit their staff.

Find a different school. They have a very large failure rate and teachers don't understand the IB/PYP program. I relocated to the Killeen area as a contractor on post. I read the reviews and expected typical greatness from a Texas school, especially with a IB program in place. After being there a year and contacting the principle several times and dealing with the teacher we determined that the school is over crowded and they are not willing to deal with the root issues causing student problems. Living near the school we have several friends with kids going to the school and all have had the same issues. Straight "A" kids barely passing, not being notified of deficiencies until right before a report card comes out. No complaints from the teacher about our child every day we pick up our kid. What are these people thinking??? On a different note, you must pay to background check yourself if you want to chaperone, you must pay your own way for field trips and when our child went to the Zoo no parents wanted to chaperone so a teacher had to tag along and 12 students were with each teacher. One student was lost and so they found him and left the zoo early. Talk about a cluster.
