    This school is a great school. Really amazing. They taught me things explained and helped so many students. (Including me) But this school isn't school of choice. ( I would of have this rating 5 stars but the cafeteria food isn't that great and there is just this one noon duty who is very very VERY strict and mean. Boys and Girls Club After School and Before School programs are at this school. It's really great and all it's just that the main staff left without telling anybody and there's this woman staff who is so mean and he made me cry. My overall rating is 3 stars.

    My school is great. We have dress up days the testing is easy for most students because the teachers teach the students so much before testing the students learn responsibility because after the music class they bring the instruments home and they have to practice on their own time and the students can run for student council and if you are their every meeting you get a certificate saying that you were on the student council. I love this school and I can't wait to start fourth grade tomorrow. I thought it would' be hard but my teacher from third grade told us some tips and what fourth grade was going to be like so she suggested some on the papers we wrote for fourth grade and now I feel super confident.

    My daughter went to this school for just as year. had heard great reviews from other parent abd even some teacher from her old school.My daughter had mrs. Afzali as her teacher. Let me tell you she's by far the worst teacher. My daughter was always afraid to ask questions and shes even rude to us( parents)! I'm not saying she doesn't teach good but she seems like she doesn't like Hispanic people. I've tried asking her questions and looking how my daughter was doing in class and she would give an attidute. I've seen her with other parents and children and she's fine. Other then that the school seem great!!!

    My son went to this school and had a very hard time adjusting. The reason I am giving 5 stars is because his teacher tried very hard to help him. She would contact us directly to help us understand what was going on within the class room she even offered additional assistance through school therapy. We now seek outside therapy for our son which has helped him out immensely. We would have never known what was happening if the teacher did not care enough to reach out to us personally.

    My child has been at this school for only one year. She will not be coming back. Although I love her teacher the other staff have been less than helpful. They suspended my five year old. When the teacher found out she was livid! Not to mention the truancy letters that we have received for my childs abscence. If I keep my kids home then it is because they are sick. I'm sorry I'm not like the rest of the parents who use the school as a "daycare center". I would rather go into debt paying for a quality education for my children than send them to the over crowded classrooms of Foussat.

    To answer the question posted on this site the lady that stands with clipboard on the corner lives in my neighborhood has no kids considered a "busy-body" and by some neighbors would agree a "nuisance". She's trying to get a stop light there and either counting cars or noting walking violations like a police officer.

    Who is the lady that stands with a clip board every morning in corner of the stops signs? Not sure of the name of the streets.

    Foussat is a lovely newer elementary school located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The principal and staff are very accomodating to the needs of their military families and I have only positive things to say about my children's education here. As an educator myself I feel that this school staff does an excellent job of teaching children in a safe friendly welcoming place.

    My son went there for two years. Mr. B was the principal. It was a bad school with horrible yard duties. There were a few good teachers but it was not what i consider a school i want my kids.

    We love this school so far. We have a fifth grader who just started here after our move from Orange County. She loves her teacher and is blossoming as a student. The facilities are new and beautiful. So far no complaints.
