I'm so disappointed with Commonwealth. We've made several interstate moves and I rely fairly heavily on GreatSchools, which is what has prompted me to write this review. Commonwealth absolutely does not deserve such great ratings. I think that is a hold-over from maybe 10+ years ago. We've lived here for almost 5 years now, and the school (as well as all of Fort Bend Independent School District) has been nothing but disappointing, angering, and it continues to devolve. The situation will not improve while Dr. Dupre is the head of FBISD and Dr. Bogle is the principal of CWE. CWE is built for roughly 680 students and currently holds over 1100! And there is no immediate plan to address this issue. The number of janitors is decided based on square footage of the building, not the number of students, and the condition of the boys' bathrooms have been compared to the worst possible public restrooms. Parents refuse to go in them, and kids simply do not go all day to avoid them. It's Texas and so it is extremely hot for fairly extended periods of the year. At the beginning of this school year, several classrooms (some out in the portable trailers) were without air condition for multiple days. There was no communication from the staff to the parents. Kids were coming home flushed and sweaty, and my parent chatroom discussed kids even vomiting and passing out! My boys frequently tell me they've had "silent lunches" or "walking recesses" and recess time is frequently cut. There are lots of punitive threats - finish your daily work or you'll go to the principal, finish your work or you'll finish it in the principal's office, finish your work or you'll stay back from the class field trip. One day the students were inexplicably dismissed 15 minutes early in pouring rain, again with no communication to the parents. I found children (my 3 boys included) soaking wet and up to almost 1/2 mile from the school.The school is currently more than 70% Asian. It's been very difficult for my kids socially and has invariably affected other aspects of the school, including discipline, the PTA, parent volunteers, etc. I say this mainly as a data point. I did not expect it, and we've learned a lot particularly in the last 2 years as this area continues to grow and change.
