    I am the parent of a special needs child at this school. Our family falls outside the demographic norms of this school. We are white professionals in a school where most children are Hispanic or African American. Almost all of the students at this school are economically disadvantaged and a majority have limited English proficiency. We have been amazed by this school. The staff are kind to us and our son. The faculty are attentive driven to succeed and dedicated to their students. The administration communicates clearly and respectfully to us and to all of the parents. We enjoy going to school events. We find our son's classmates to be kind to him respectful to us. This is a safe school a caring school and an academically successful school. The scores of the students at this school on standardized tests bely their economic and language disadvantages.

    Student and teacher safety is not a top priority at this school and it needs to be. The number 1 priority are the test scores. Leaders of the school need more experience education and exposure to the importance of early childhood education. I would not recommend it as a place to send your children or a place to work.

    The teachers at this school work very hard to give students the best possible education. However in grades that teach subjects that are tested on TAKS nothing else is taught except the test. Most of the teachers are very nurturing however there are always exceptions. I have seen teachers disrespecting both the students and parents. They have a great after school program for children who do not have to take after school math and reading classes.

    I had a child who attended Andrews. The teachers were knowledgable and caring. The work was challenging and she is well prepared for middle school. If I had a concern the principal and teachers were always available to talk to me.

    My son has attended Andrews since PreK. He has had excellent teachers supported by a committed administration. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful school.

    Mrs. Betty Jo Hudspeth previous Principal and Mrs. Laurie Barber current Principal are committed and have successfully built a foundation for academic excellence. Their leadership at Andrews helps to bridge the family values and expectations for academic excellence and promote positive citizenship for the students at Andrews. I have personally had the opportunity to interact with Andrews' administrators and teachers and find that they exhibit high moral and ethical values as well. There's satisfaction in knowing Andrews Elementary is our neighborhood school. Continue to pursue the best for our students!

    My child attended Andrews for two years. 1997-1999. She had two wonderful teachers that were wonderful at their jobs. My concern for this school then and now is that all of the teachers have a very difficult task trying to teach children who's parents don't help. The teachers worked hard to give each child a good foundation but without parents backing the teachers sending the children to school rested and tummies full and also supporting the school when discipline is needed. After enrolling my child in another local school I see that Yes! with the help of parents all the children can have a wonderful school experience.
