The school personnel is not terrible ... I agree they could use better-organized skills .i enjoy the small ration per teacher like a private school.However...the majority of children at schools are mean, selfish and especially racist!!! The parents are even worse than the kids!!!

This school has some good teachers, but suffers from poor leadership. Students whose parents work in the school district, or whose parents attend church with the administrator are not held to the same standards as the general population. Though most parents must commute out of town to work, the administration does not promote before/after school clubs or activities for students. Policies are not enforced with consistency. Parents are hesitant to voice concerns, for fear that administrators will target their children for punishment. This is a nice, small town, and this could be a great school. What a shame.

I was a bit skeptical enrolling my daughter in a middle/junior high school at age 10yrs. I thought she was to young and didn't t feel like she was socially mature enough. I was totally wrong. She flourished. Taking AP classes, getting involved in clubs and making new friends. She loved all of her teachers and actually got excited to go to school. The school is relaxed about dress code and more focused on education and students talents. I highly recommend Van Alstyne Middle School.

This school was a great school. The classes were really good and the teachers were okay. I loved how they split up the 5th and 6th grade and put a door..that led to a different area to the 7th and 8th grade. When I was going to school there Elementary School was K-8th grade but then they moved 5th-8th grade to the old high school which is now known as Van Alstyne Junior High and they started building a bigger high school for 9th-12th. I hate to say it but the Junior high was just really scary but the teachers were somewhat nice. You had your good ones and your pissy ones.
