    My 1st and 5th graders had an excellent school year. My 1st grader had excellent teaching and encouragement My 5th grader was very well prepared for the TAKS this year. My kids love Tyrrell.

    My kids have been going to Tyrrell for a while. This is my 5th grader's last year and I know she will truly miss it. The teachers are great and the principal is great. I don't which Middle school she will attend but I wish Tyrrell had a 6th grade and I wouldn't have this problem. My 1st grader is doing wonderfully and he's looking forward to 2nd grade. I wouldn't send my kids to any other elementary school in port arthur.

    Tyrrell is a great school with an outstanding staff and administration. The principal really cares about kids regardless of their ethnicity or home situation. The Board would do well to take notice and allow her to do her job without all of the micromanaging.
