    Targeted individual learning for students is amazing. The school has become a place of great education. The development over the past 6 years is phenomenal.

    My son has gone to this school for three years. I find the entire faculty to be extremely involved and attentive to their students. The PTA has an event every month and the parents are informed and updated about going- ons on a regular basis by calls and emails. I would recommend this school to any parent.

    Teachers are great there are some decent activities for the children. However i would not recommend this as friendly school to attend. As with any school this one has it's share of issues and it has a 60% free lunch rating (not good). Would not recommend this school until it has a new principal!!! school and principal put a nice front to cover a lot of unresolved issues. I have transferred my children to a better neighborhood school.

    Our school is amazing. We have a great staff of teachers. They really take the kids as individuals the kids are taught specifically to their learning needs. We also are a part of Tribes. Tribes make our school and the students in it a community incorporating a Think Smart Act Smart attitude. Our children are taught to not bully one another because they are fat tall skinny short etc. Also every quarter the children have a 4A's ceremony. Each child is able to earn four different awards Academics Attitude Attendance and Arts. These are just some of the great things going on at our school.

    Great teachers good place to learn. The school is very involved with the students and familys. The kids are always excited about the school dances. Great after school programs as well. Great job with keeping parents posted about whats going on in the class rooms. Lots of activities for the kids to join that keep them involved.

    Because of the care and concern of all the teachers for their pupils regarding education and striving to be the best at whatever they do in life.

    Teachers are great! They look out for your kids and are really involved to make sure your child is understanding whats being teached.

  • (6 years ago)

    The principal is the main reason we are transferring our daughter to Irving. The principal is a woman who avoids conflicts and allows problems to fester by avoiding taking care of bad situations that could potentially harm you child. The teachers are great however.

  • (7 years ago)

    Really don't like the principal but the teachers are great and the kids are doing so well!
