    Teachers here are very commited to education of students. There are many groups where kids can excel their abilities (Astronomy Science Music Sports). I participated in the DOGS program (Dads Of Great Students) and I was encouraged by students and teachers alike in a very clean school environment.

    My children have attended this school since opening day and I can say as a parent I have been more than satisfied. The entire staff has always done an outstanding job! Keep up the great work!

    As a parent I am VERY satisfied that my child is excited about reading. There are lots of great reading programs that the school and library utilizes to promote reading for all students. My child is always anxious to go to the AR STORE and this summer we are excited to go as a family to Six Flags Fiesta Texas thanks to the librarian who takes the time to promote reading through the Six Flags Read to Succeed program. This school has a great and caring staff. Administration always does a great job of communicating with parents. I know I can go to work with a great peace of mind knowing that my child is safe and learning at a great campus! Keep up the good work Driggers!!!

    I am disappointed that a school named after one of NISD's most beloved librarians has a library that is always "closed". My child has difficulty checking out books because the library is not open for one reason or another. I have to take my child to the public library to check out needed books. This school started off outstanding but lately been falling short of expectations.

    I can say as an highly involved parent of 2 children this school has been great. The staff from the Principal to th Teachers to the Custodians are all very welcoming. I am very please with the education and assistance the my children receive.

    My child has been going to this school when they opened it and they rezoned transfering him from Elrod Elem. The teachers here seem to take a personal touch with the students and the principal is very friendly. My son is in the 3rd grade and it seems like everyone knows him. He has thrived at this school and is very active in school activities.

    This is my son's first year attending this school. He seems to really like it and the faculty seems like they are very nice. Only can make it better if we all work together!

    Everyone seems to be nice however I do feel that the staff is not that well organized. Everyone seems to care for the children as they should but they could always do better. It's a new school so hopefully they will only grow stronger and better!

    I feel that the school has much growing to do. Safety policies are not enforced the Principle in my view seems to laid back. The office staff and nurse are great but the entire school lacks organization. I prefer my son's old school to this one.

    Driggers is in its first year and off to a great start. Faculty and staff friendly and enthusiastic though still dealing with the lack of some facilities while the school is being finished.
