    Truly exceptional administrative teaching and support staff. Inspiring mix of children from all over the world enthusiastic about learning and becoming responsible adults. Beautiful family atmosphere with a strong sense of personal safety active no-bullying policy and dignity-protecting disciplinary practices. The school counselor is super-experienced the specials (PE Art & Music) teachers are always enthusiastic parent volunteers go beyond the call of duty and the "extras" the school provides in the learning environment is remarkable. My child has been here for some years and I wouldn't have him in any other school. -) Patton simply ROCKS!

    Our son has ADHD and we started kinder at a local private school thinking it would help him adjust to school. It was not until we transferred to Patton that he took off academically. Our son is doing very well with supportive teachers a loving and accepting counselor and superb principle.

    Patton Elementary is a community of teachers aides clerks custodians and parents who work together as a family to meet the academic physical emotional and ethical needs of our children. There is an atmosphere of compassion and commitment to be found here. Teachers only leave our school to retire to relocate with a spouse or to recuperate from ill health. We love it here. It is our second home.

    The principal and teaching staff care and can relate to students and parents. Problem resolution is quick and fair. Academics are of paramount importance but are tempered with fun. Love love love Patton!

    We have just completed another great year at Patton. I am a parent that wants to be involved and there are many opportunities for parents at Patton to be as involved as they want to be. I also like the fact that even though in numbers Patton is a fairly large school the attitude and atmosphere of principal teachers staff and other parents is very friendly and 'small school' which provides a comfortable palce for my child to learn and build a sense of community and confidence. Patton is like family!

    We are thrilled to be part of the Patton family. The teachers and staff are so warm and welcoming and there are a lot of opportunities for parents to get involved. It has been amazing watching my child grow and learn in such a wonderful environment.

    Love seeing the principal standing in the parking lot welcoming the students. My son feels very proud when he waves at him. Expecting to be at this school for a long time.

    Patton focuses on teaching kids that would not perform well on the TAKS test. AISD also has a policy that prevents the school from tracking. Tracking is a technique used by some schools to group kids of like skills. This means that children that are smart will not be pushed or challenged. Keep in mind that part of the schools funding is determined by how well they do on the TAKS test. In my case my son has not learned anything new in math since before Christmas (its now April). Also they fly the flags of the countries that make of the UN in the main entrance. You will find very little time is spent on teaching American Heritage and a lot of time spent on multi-culturally customs.

    Patton is wonderful our 2 kids enjoy their teachers because maintain order and structure in the classroom and manage to have fun too. Our kids are challenged and praised and we find the principal the same with the teachers it's a trickle down effect. Kids are taught to be kind and sensitive to differences in beliefs and race the counselor works with each grade level to ensure the kids are kind.

    Our son has been with Patton for the second year and so far we have been satisfied with the result. His current teacher is excellent. She makes sure that parents are informed about different activities in the classroom and school as well as children's behavior. Teachers do not pamper and baby the students but encourage them to be indepentdent which my husband and I also love. All in all Patton is a great school. )

    Patton is an excellent school with experienced teachers a dedicated principal and for the most part involved parents. Also since Patton is a slightly older school it has been insulated from the busting-at-the-seams growth other schools have experienced. The best thing about Patton is the community feeling within the school maintaining a comfortable student-teacher ratio.

    My step-daughter was new at Patton this year. We were at first excited and had heard great things about the school. End of the year we are very disappointed in the school. Our daughter had a great teacher but she was forced to leave in the middle of the year. We no longer have communication between school and home. I really hope Patton takes a long look at its weak points and finds ways to improve itself over the summer months.

    I have had two children at Patton for the last 4 years and it's been a great experience for all of us. They enjoy their classwork definitely seem to be challenged and their teachers are really great - they know their material and can translate complicated material so kids can understand. The bonus in being in a public school is that there are host of other kids to interact with so they have had a lot of interpersonal experiences with nice kids iffy kids and bullies. Bullies though not tolerated do happen and - in our experience - are dealt with quickly. We've had two different principals with distinct leadership styles - the current principal runs a really tight ship (so to speak) but will take action if any parent presents a concern or issue. Lots of volunteerism at the school (myself included).

    There are definitely times when I wish my children went to a schools with higher ratings -- I feel like all the neighborhood schools are considered much better than Patton. But my children are happy here and I don't think the tests scores really affect them. The teachers for the most part are wonderful and experienced.
