    Were so glad we found this school. This school is like our second family. I'm happy about how the kids are disciplined and taught and how well the teachers interact with the students. Everyone is so nice and the kids are very well behaved and respectful.

    Pre-K through 1st grade is fine unfortunately 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th grade is not reassuring. From year to year too many teachers are switched from one grade level to another. The classrooms are too crowded.

    The staff the teachers the people from the caffeteria and of course the PRINCIPAL are amazing! Have a son in 1st grade he has speech dificulty and has received support from ESL Speech Reading recovery and my son is doing just great !! Teachers do really care and principal is on top of the teachers to give the best to the kiddos! Love it ! They're inspiring to bring also the best as a parent to the kids.

    I have been extremely impressed with the school! The teachers that each of my children have had have worked above and beyond the call of duty. As a teacher myself I often ask myself 'Would you want your own child to be in this teacher's class?' To date I would be happy with my children being in any teacher's class that I have come accross. In addition I am extremely impressed with the administration and counselors--I feel blessed that we are zoned to this school!

    We moved to neighborhood in the middle of last school year. Since there was no opening in the regular classes my son was put in the GT class. Without even knowing my son's strength the teacher told us in face that he would fail. But to her surprise my son did great. The administrative staff and teacher not friendly. Luckily my son has a goos teacher this year. But I feel something is missing. I feel the only purpose of the school is to get high Taks score and not to develop a child's knowledge.

    Our family is new to the area and we are extremely pleased with this school. I cannot say enough good things about it. The Principal is available for every parent and student at any time always making it known that the success of every student is the main goal. The teachers are caring and attentive. They are constantly working on new ways to make the school better for the students. This is exactly what I want in a school for my children...one that is always striving to improve even when test scores say they don't need to! A great school needs to change with the times and this school works to always do what is best for the students. Parents are always welcome and no question is silly or unimportant. Also the diversity of the student population is awesome. Acceptance is never an issue. A Great School with excellent Principal leadership!!

    Five years ago the school was really nice and my experience has been in general a good one. I love the diversity but the school is way to crowed. My daughter went into the 2nd grade reading at a 3rd to 4th grade level and did not make any improvement all year long however she was very weak within her math skill and this was not really addressed. The principal is a kind person and a great leader but it's hard to say if this school is worth the high tax dollars.

    When we moved into the house the school was not built yet. But we believed the school will be a good school because it's a new community and resides in Fort Bend county. But after about 5 years we are kind of disappointed. The school rating dropped from recognized to acceptable. Before my son went to Kindergarten in this school he was in a Montessori school his reading was third grade level when he left the Montessori. After he went to RDE we didn't see any improvement on his reading and math the first two years. Not just that we feel his behavior is not as good as before learned a lot bad language. So now we are looking for a good private school around.
