    This school scores below average it wasn't a good school when I went there and it still isn't a good school now that my child goes there. As a parent getting any type of help or answers from the administration staff is like playing a game of cat and mouse they send you all over the place and leave you with nothing. They treat you with disrespect!

    This school is a good school. I know because I attend this school. The teachers are great and the studenta only judge because of who you like. That's the only bullying that occurs at this school. So you can cut it out wth all this bull about it being the worst school in DISD.

    This is the worst school in DISD.they are teaching these kids absolutely nothing.I have been up here 3 times in the last week for problems my child is having up here with other kids.and they just dont care!and they are suppose to have a a no bullying policy yeah right that s bull.this school has only changed for the worst and i know because i went here in middle school.

    Come On Now the school is improving alot I enjoy this school so much! I have met many new friends & my teachers are helping me so much with my school work. I hope this school does not close down. At first I was afraid to go to Comstock due to what people told me but when you finally get there its not bad at all!

    My son was attending this school in 09 and I had to transfer him out because I was scared fro him . I regret I ever put him in the school after evrey one else was telling me how bad the school was. I dont recomed any one else to go to this school....

    well i am a student that goes to E.B.Comstock Midlle School ans i say that are shool is trying to do much but way much better. We have new principals and i think that Comstock was a bad school at those times but you know things change. We might get into fights but not every day and not even every month I think this school is just trying to be is best sadly we cant be our best if they let our bestest teachers go beacuse of what happen in DISD but of course this is not the teachers nor the principal fault its the students that make it look bad but were really good students. Well some may and some may not but like I said were trying to have a way better school but thats my opinion.

    As a teacher a few years ago this was the absolute worst job! Principal Wanda Huckaby sided with students who cursed and threatened teachers. Kids would even walk out of class after harrassing or cursing at teachers and go get her to back them up. Which she always did. Learning was a joke and expectations were low.

    being in comstock has been nothing but mess some teachers aren't here for the students and some students don't even care some students judge you on what you wear and that's sad Comstock has nothing but people with no kind of class shoot the principal don't have any leadership either it is just a school that have nothing but followers but even though those kids gave Comstock a bad reputation doesn't mean the whole school is for example me i have some flaws but i will not let these people in Comstock put me down from my education because i know that i am going to need it

    The teachers at this school spend most of their time with student's behavior problems. Parental involvement is non existent. The Administrative team has their hands full with discipline. They seem to try but it's tooooooo many discipline problems that spill over from the 'hood' on to the campus. To many children with emotional concerns and no true interest in learning. The 'good kids' don't seem to be rubbing off on the 'others'. It's sad because the Principal and teachers really seem to try. I would not want to work there!

    Working in this school has been a total experience. Often i am asked by parents if they should move their child to a different school in the area and i always respond by saying yes if it's a good kid. This school has horrible principal leadership (or lack thereof) the extracurricular activities are tainted by the fact that we let the worst kids in the school play sports because the principal believes it keeps them on top of their school work (which it doesn't) the parental involvement is basically non-existant safety and discipline are huge issues. The only shining factor at this school would have to be the teacher quality. These are some of the most talented and dedicated teachers i have ever encountered. It is just sad though that teachers have to work in an environment like this where you can't have class. Horrible school! bad principal! just say no!

    The quality of academic programs is very poor. There is so much crime and police involvement. It feels like you are entering a juvenile detention center. Kids are mostly worried about not getting hurt than concentrating in there work. This is my daughter's first year at this school and she has been given homework only once. I'm withdrawing her form this school. Parent involvement is so poor and the staff concern is very low. Maybe they do care but the crime gives them little time to get involved in the educatinal level. I have not seen any electives which have caught my attention or my daughters. I would not recommend this school. The Dallas ISD should close the school down or have the state get involved to make it a mandatory improvement.

    I transferred my son to EB Comstock the 2nd term of 2004. Staying abreast of violence (Guns and other Weapons) with metal detectors. My son was not issued books for any of his classes (Normal for the school!). No homework. The course work was much more simplified compared to the ISD he had transferred from. My son was also assulted at the school. I recieved no solution to the many disciplinary concerns I had about the school. In relation to the school work the motto 'No Child Left Behind' regardless if anything was taught or not was that too long to post on the sign.
